For the past couple of years we've OWED taxes. It really stinks. All our deductions are growing up...and only one of them managed to get a college degree so far. So, credits are hard to come by. And every year, Hubby puts it off as long as humanly possible. And our dining table suffers for it:
We managed to shave $1500 off what we thought we owed, so that's a plus. And as per The Girl's advice, we will have a CPA do the taxes next year!
******Wednesday - Quiche, zucchini, bacon
Thursday - Sliced ham, Mom's Macaroni Salad, Vanilla Wafer Cake
Friday - Mexican Chicken, salad
Saturday - Prom Night - Mom and Dad out
Sunday - Freezer meal of some sort
For a tax relief afternoon, Hubby and I took ourselves to lunch out and a winery at the end of last week. He got a new pipe. I got a bottle of plum wine. And we split a delightful merlot.
Next week, it's official: I am on the evening shift at work. I have reservations about it, sure. But I am determined to make a go of it. After all, it hasn't been shiggles on Saturday - Tuesday for a long time. And having weekends free with my peeps will be a great trade off. So, the weekly menus will go back to Monday through Sunday since I will most likely shop on Monday. And I have a whole new plan for that, too!
Tuesday - Crock pot beef
Wednesday - salad/fridge meal
Thursday - oven/skillet meal (I prep, the menfolk cook it)
Friday - Crock pot chicken or pork
Saturday - Hubby grills
Sunday - Mom cooks (family meal)
Wish me luck!
