Lists are cool, sometimes...


Beach Barrettes
All hand made by my daughter from shells we have collected over the years.

My to do list for Spring Break:

I have two more days left on break and this post knocks two of the items off of my list.

The only thing left is the fucking taxes.

Miss you all. I'd say I see a light at the end of a dark tunnel, but don't want to jinx anything.

Taxes... OIY!

We are going to be planning a trip to Hawaii for December 2012. I hope you don't mind me pestering you in the upcoming year for travel tips and such...

Happy Weekend :)

Kristan said...

Ugh I need to do my taxes too...

I'll def do what I can to tell people about your daughter's store too!

Ocean Girl said...

Happy Spring and happy hiking. Your list sounds wonderful, except that one thing that is on everybody's list too.

angie said...

Good to have you back to the bloggy world!

rosaria said...

Breathe in, breathe out. Wasn't that easy? Enjoy the beautiful vistas.

Robin said...

I say have the sunset cocktails first and then do the taxes, it will be less painful that way....

Irish Gumbo said...

That gets taxed, too? I guess we're all screwed!

(hehe)

Miss you, too, my dear. Stay sane and happy :)

Joanna Jenkins said...

You live in such a beautiful place that I really hope you get more time to enjoy it while you're on break.

As for the taxes-- Oy. I feel your pain.

Cheers, jj

tera said...

Yeesh. That's a hell of a list. I think you need to add a few more cocktails!

I like the barrettes, if only I had longer hair! I'm so in need of a little bit of summer...

I hope you find a little more "ahhh" time!

Very funny, Irish.

Pseudo - always great to see you in my google reader. Also, I will be stowing away in Jack's luggage for that 2012 trip.

xoxoxoxo

tulpen said...

Captain Dumbass said...

Hey stranger. Our spring break here is two weeks this year because the school boards are so broke they decided to add an extra week to cut costs.

ds said...

Good to know you're still around! Such a great feeling to be able to cross things off of a list (especially taxes). Good luck!

TechnoBabe said...

Hi there, seems like you are part of the too busy club lately. Yes please do enjoy the things about the place you live. Gorgeous sunsets being one of the many things over there. I forwarded your daughter's etsy link to my daughter in CA.

Nubian said...

Quite the list! Husband is doing taxes, I am staying drunk... currently we owe

Fragrant Liar said...

I feel your pain, as I am left with nothing but the fucking taxes too. I shall wait for the 15th of next month, I'm sure, to file them.

Sprite's Keeper said...

Just bite the bullet and do them. Then breathe a sigh of relief!
Gorgeous barrettes, by the way..

Gaston Studio said...

I just don't understand someone who procrastinates Pseudo; I say do the things, first, that you hate the most... so you can then sit back, breathe and enjoy that drink!

Mama Badger said...

IF you get it all done, think of how good it will feel that night before you go back! Good luck with the taxes.

Kaylen said...

I love lists too.
I really love crossing things off my list best though! Looks like you are doing a splendid job on that end.

I had to get my taxes done by end of January to apply for financial aid for my son to go to college this year. It was kinda nice to have a reason to just be DONE with them early on.

secret agent woman said...

I am almost done with the fucking taxes. Bleh.

Angie Ledbetter said...

I put things on the checklist afterwards just so I can have the pleasure of checking them off.

lisleman said...

oh the effen f---ing or fucking taxes - I guess the spelling depends on your occupation. Tax accountants and lawyers spell it M-o-n-e-y. Anyway I got that chore done this last weekend and I was surprised (up coming post material) that turbotax asked if I wanted to brag about finishing on facebook - really people do put anything on FB don't they?

Casey said...

I'm afraid to make a list since that would mean I'd have to actually do something.

Love the barrettes, your daughter is crafty! Hope you enjoyed your break. Ours is next week and we're going to Disney. Eek!

Surfie said...

You just reminded me that I still haven't done my taxes either. *sigh* I don't WANT to give Uncle Sam all my money! :( I sure wish I lived in Hawaii so I could enjoy those beautiful hikes. I do live at the beach, but this is SC, so there are no hills.

Those barrettes are nice! :)

Debbie said...

I hate the taxes. I don't even do them. But I hate trying to get everything together so they can be done!

starrlife said...

Dear Pseudo- I miss you! Please email me and share, any support I can give I will, promise... If not then I send you the very best of hugs and positive thoughts to resolve all distress....
after the taxes are done of course.
