Chores and Taxes

This post contains affiliate links.

This weekend was spent doing a lot of housework which included pulling hundreds of weeds, bush trimming and breaking apart a weathered swing set and buying and assembling a brand new one from Big Lots which we got on sale for $96 with 20% off on top of that with their one day 20% off sale.

I also helped my in-laws do their taxes on Sunday and this was the first year I used TurboTax online to completely do a full Federal and State Tax return, it was easy and painless (easier since they take standard deductions too).  I was impressed with the quality of the site and it was just as functional as using any purchasable software.

I should note though, that buying the TurboTax Deluxe Software (Federal, State and e-File) is cheaper from Amazon than paying TurboTax directly and filing online by about $19.

In the meantime, this week will be a very busy week at my job and leave little time for blogging. This is annual review week and I have to give 16 focal reviews each about an hour long this week on top of my regularly scheduled meetings.

I am also trying to queue a mass of blog posts for my March Spring Break with the family where I will be driving to Las Vegas, then California and though I will have my iPad and probably laptop I probably won’t be spending a lot of time blogging unless I want to get my family ticked off at me for working on my vacation days.
