A product of contemplation; a thought. "an elegant tapestry of quotations,
musings, aphorisms, and autobiographical reflections" (James Atlas).
Well.....today I am musing about a few things, my musings hardly qualify as an elegant tapestry of quotations, however, let us begin.
Taxes -- normally this time of year I usually have my refund back already, However, for some reason I could not find a working printer anywhere in this house. After having gathered all pertinent forms I set them carefully aside and Husband and I went to Staples and chose an HP 6000 printer that came with all the bells and whistles. I did NOT set it up for faxes because I did not wish to mess with it. Hooked up all the gadgets and celebrated that EVERY thing worked!
Plugged in Turbo Tax CD and fired that up. Spent about 3 hours making sure I answered all the questions correctly. End results. Uncle Sam giveth and Oregon taketh away. Drat! But my main concern had been paying a whole whopping wad of folding green to the Feds because I busted open a 401K to pay for Sunroom fix, sun room roof fix, whole house paint job, various window type repairs as well as the sewer disaster, the storm gutters, the hot water heater replacement and just to make it even more perfect a replacement freezer. But no, enough taxes had been withheld so we squeaked by.
Made some French Toast out of bagels this morning, tasty, It would have been quicker just to toast them and dip daintily into syrup. Erp....
We have been incredibly busy at work; December discharges were around 50, January discharges were 76! We have finally rolled over to a new transcription server which allows us to send jobs to the parent company who hands them out to their crew to type. The census had varied wildly in the past few weeks, we have older sicker patients being admitted due to our new physician on staff. Job security.
I have family moving to Hawaii on March 1. I am saving up now for the air plane tickets to go visit, but am pretty sure I would like to go when it is not summer. Um, field ripened pineapples.
