Another hurdle cleared

Thank you, God, that I have finally got my taxes done! May Caesar accept unquestioningly the returns I offer him, and be content with his all-too-deep cut.

Easter coming so early this year really screwed up my tax preparation (plus, I was exhausted and sick leading up to Easter). So, I filed an automatic extension. Now, faced with the UK trip in just SIX days!, I was burning the midnight oil, trying to get the numbers in order in their little boxes.

Finally got it done. You wouldn't believe the amount of paper it takes two modestly paid schlemiels like me and collinsmom to file our taxes. In addition to the usual circus of clergy taxes for me, she started a small business this year (which wasn't very successful) AND had income from unemployment and disability.
