Filing my taxes this year was definitely a case of better late than never. I picked up the completed return on Thursday. This was definitely the latest I’ve ever done my taxes. Fortunately, I didn’t owe any money. The accountant said that filing for an extension was no problem when I mentioned my lateness to him. But I’ve made a promise to myself that I will do better next year. He submitted them electronically that afternoon and I’ve received confirmation from both the IRS and Missouri tax folks that my returns have been filed.
I went to the lab for some medical tests before I went to the accountant’s office. One of the tests involved a blood draw. I don’t know how or why it happened but I looked at my arm in the parking lot and it was covered in blood. The bleeding had soaked through the band-aid. Thankfully, it did stop bleeding but I looked a mess.
On my way to the office, I drove through a really fierce storm. The rain was so heavy the traffic slowed to 20 mph on the highway. It was extremely difficult to see exit signs, etc. But I arrived safely at the office. I got a parking space close to the door but still had to struggle with an umbrella, my purse and my cane.
Thursday was not the easiest day of the week.
