Today I am keeping busy for obvious reasons

I have to go out to Centerton to our CPA's office to pick up papers to send thousands of dollars to the IRS. And then pay her a fat $70 for telling us that's how much we owe.
It's really OK, though. Yahweh is a provider, we have been faithful over our finances, and we set aside money for this every year. So...no worries! Just kind of stinks.
My Dad told me one time that paying taxes is like paying rent to live in free America and that REALLY changed my perspective on it. It sure as heck ain't a perfect system, but I will still pay taxes faithfully and not lie/cheat/steal the government.

Next will be the beloved (not) Walmart trip for this week's groceries. Thanks to e-mealz.com this trip just keeps getting easier and easier. Still...not fun to do when you are almost 10 months pregnant.

Then laundry. My sweet husband has been digging into the depths of his underwear drawer, finding boxers from probably 8th grade, because it's been so long since I've done this. Today is the day!

I have more to say but I have to leave and get started on my day.
Blessings to everyone!

I SO need things to do right now to keep me busy and my mind off of jump starting labor. This is my third time to do this and I am STILL impatient...ugh! I should really be a pro by now, but now not at all. Maybe with everything you have to do today you will trigger labor...that would be nice! When's your next doctor's appointment? Mine's tomorrow...38 weeks!

Okay, the boxers from 8th grade sent me over the top! I loved it. I know exactly what you mean. I know it's really bad when your husband starts wearing tighty whiteys that are too small for him!

Oh, and so true what your dad said. In terms of taxes, I just think, "This is to pay for the free police, schools, roads, and all that stuff I take for granted."

Brittany, i LOVE doctor's appointments! I'm so happy for you! Ours is Wednesday. Since they moved my supposed due date up, I guess I'm at 39 weeks now because I'd be 40 weeks next sunday. So who knows. Yes! just keeping busy busy busy. I can't keep living day to day waiting and waiting and fighting off frustration! Just be in the rest, and she'll come when she comes!

Leslie, just the saying tighty whiteys CRACKS ME UP! And the fact that they are, on top of that, too small....hahahahaha YES!!

Hey, I just saw an iPhone application for meal planning, I can't remember what it was called but I guess you could probably Google it. I want an iPhone just for the applications.

you can get an iTouch and get all the applications without the expensive data plan every month!
