Only a few branches ever see the light of day and they are only apparent when there's blossom.

The ivy is so dense around the trunk that you can't actually touch it.

I know, I've tried!

I have both 2018 tax returns in envelopes to take to the post office tomorrow. I think they're right :/

After getting over the emotional planet-sized roadblock of doing the taxes by myself ....this was always me and beest against the world (especially the last few years as we did them during chemo) ......and I just couldn't hand it over to someone else because I promised him we'd be OK and I could so it and this was part of it.....

I then had to address the incredible complexities introduces by the various incomes related to his death and my actions with those.....

And then the stupid Federal tax form is all changed so I couldn't follow our ritual of 20 years of working from the last year's......

but I think I'm good to go..... right up to the wire.... it might be OK...

Often a job that's done imperfectly is better than a job not done. Essentially the story of my life.

Thanks. The fuckers are mailed. fingers crossed any bad things I might have done accidentally were not criminal or expensive.... I just followed directions to the best of my ability but it really is a total crapshoot. I realized as I was inking the final version last night, there were two forms that didn't get mentioned anywhere, so I researched some more and found out what schedule I needed and did all that malarkey....and it did reduce my liability further, except that I was aalready maxed out on that avenue. Oh well. Every form I was sent is mentioned somewhere so..... (there were about 30)

Wish I had known you were struggling. That's what Amanda does for a living. I think she does a good amount of Michigan too. If you get a notice from the IRS , let me know.

The struggle was mostly emotional. math and following instructions, I got. I think. but thanks. And i will Hopefully I won't need to. It was the Federal that took some time. Michigan basically just takes the figure off the Federal form and wants to know your school district number

Whatever it is, I'm trying to be there for you.

People die. Purple live. The dead have the easier path. The survivors have to keep waking up every day and get on with life. Anything I can do to share your load, just ask.
