Am I tired ... or what... ?

Today has not been a banner day for me, personally. Have you ever gotten into a rut in your life and feeling like there is absolutely NO WAY out? That's how my day has been today.

I am a procrastinator by nature... and now it's coming back to bite me in the fanny. There are a few things that fall into this category ... and I don't necessarily need to go into them. Just know that I am completely frustrated and exceptionally down today. Oh well... as I say... one step at a time.

I did not get a chance to work on anything other than tax paperwork. My husband and I file late every year. So... October 14, 2008 is the big date. But today I found out some information that is just not too cool. I'm going to try to fix it as best as I can... but it may cost me. And it involves the Department of Revenue for my state. Crap! I hate tax people and being responsible for paying taxes. What's the old saying... there are only two things certain in this life... death and taxes! Yep, I do believe 'tis true.

One good thing, I had dinner with my hubby tonight...his treat, Chinese takeout. We don't get to treat ourselves very much in this manner, but tonight was very special and yummy. The "cook" who was on tonight was the guy that we love to order this certain item from the menu. Hot and Spicy Beef (extra spicy too). It was awesome! I ate every morsel! I starved myself all day knowing what was to come. But the fact this guy was cooking tonight made it even more wonderful. I love Chinese food. In fact, I don't think there are too many ethnic foods I don't like. I love food. I love to cook food.... and I love to try new things. But it's not just about the food... it's what the food represents. I'm not up on my Chinese food for thought... but for instance, the significance of several different types of Italian cuisine because of the various regions in Italy. Very amazing to me. Food dishes from Ireland too... part of my heritage. The significance of taking tea with someone who is Irish... Whoa! Serious stuff.

Gotta go, it's late and I must be up early in the morning tomorrow. I am the secretary for the local business association, and we have a meeting tomorrow morning at 7-bloody-30 am! Yipes!

Hugs,
PS

Penny,
I just wanted to stop by and say Hello to my pink sister! I am about 4 1/2 years out since my mastectomy. I wear two pink bracelets and always remember to try to reach out to touch every pink sister I come in contact with.
Praying for your continued good health.
In Sisterly Love,
Sandyt
