It is Friday again…before I retired the days never went as fast as they do now.
Chance is becoming real bossy. He wants both of us up early in the morning…and knows when I am awakened by his cold nose, I will take him outside and make sure he goes potty. Far Guy just sends him off by himself to potty all alone. Often times after we are both awake for the day Chance goes back to sleep…he must think it is one of his new jobs.
I am still waiting for some W 2’s for the Income Taxes. I did our taxes years ago. Never again. We have been audited twice and had a few greetings come in the mail…and that is with an accountant doing the computations. Last summer we were sent an IRS bill. Of course we contested it…it was obviously an error on their part…but they are never wrong. Our accountant wrote them a letter on our behalf and about six weeks later we got a letter saying that we owed them zero $. That was about the time that there was an IRS Scam going on in this area…whoever it was called us three times in one day saying that if we didn’t pay up right now we would be going to jail. Buggers anyway…kinda scary when someones says you are going to jail…but then I thought hey they have to cook for me and I would have lots of leisure time…
I cleaned out part of the pantry and donated some real smelly laundry soap and a few other items to the local food shelf. One of our local stores had a coupon for a free can of Hormel Chili with Beans….we like ours without beans so it is a really good item to send to the food shelf…and it didn’t cost anything.
The funny this week: We were in Wallyworld shopping, Far Guy had his list and I had mine. On his travels…he likes to walk up and down all the aisles getting his steps in when he saw an old woman he knew, she warned him to keep his distance as she had a bad cold. She also said “Don’t talk to my husband either, he has a bad cold also.” Well low and behold..a few aisles later Far Guy saw him taking stuff off the shelf, looking at it and then putting it back. I said “Maybe there should be a rule, if you touch something you should buy it.” Far Guy said “We would have a lot of shampoo then.”
Guilty, I am guilty of reading labels on shampoo bottles, if fragrance is one of the first three items listed in the ingredients it is returned to the shelf. Good grief…I am also guilty of standing in the shampoo aisle smelling shampoo to see if we can live with it or not. Prell gives me an instant sore throat and sinus problems…it has been years since I have used it….but it always looks so pretty in the container.
