I've been so sick for the last few days that I couldn't sit in my chair in front of my computer and I couldn't even form a coherent word to play Words With Friends. (my name is ConnieAW if you want to play)
Luckily....I was sick over the weekend mostly and iKeith took care of me. He took care of the kids and brought food home. He brought my favorite Twisters Breakfast Burrito and it was soooo good! I did go to the grocery store on Sunday Morning and it took all the energy I had to do so. I might have coughed on a couple people on purpose because they kept getting in my way.
I read an entire book.....and I loved it. I loved the book and I loved that I had time to do one of my favorite things in all of the world. I hate that I have to be sick to do it sometimes...I need to make time for it.
Over the weekend...I had to break some bad news to some friends. I'd been hoping that I'd be able to go to a blogging meet up in Austin in May. I was counting on our tax refund being large enough that I'd be able to claim some of it for myself. I'm still getting a little bit...but I'm saving it for a PTA outfit.
I studied tax info to see what all we could deduct this year because last year was so expensive for us. I discovered that our moving expenses could be and also the Apple conference. I felt like Obama owed us big since he caused iKeith to find new employment. Did you know that you can't deduct expenses for finding a new job in a different field...you know, like if the President CANCELS the space program and finding another job in that field would require you to move to Russia. That's bullshit.
Anyway....our refund was looking good. My hard work paid off and then I had to make a decision. Take a chunk of the money for myself and go on a weekend trip. Or send my husband to San Francisco to the Apple conference so that he can learn more for his career.
I think you know which one I picked.
Dear Becca, IA, Jennifer Katherine, Vivienne and Shawn.
I am so sorry. Please don't be upset with me. I promise that someday....things will be better here and I will be able to take trips. Have a Texas Martini for me....
