Not Much to Report

Afraid we don't have too much to report these days.  Just working on things around the house and waiting for Johnny to have surgery to fix his leg.  Good news is the surgery is scheduled for March 23rd so there's only a little while more to wait.  Waiting is the worst!  So many things to get stressed about while you are waiting...

Welcome to our new followers.  Sorry we haven't had much to post about lately.  I expect things will pick up after the surgery is done.

Besides waiting for surgery we've been trying to finish up things for taxes.  Since we both do contract work and have associated travel expenses it can get complicated.  It's funny how we categorize expenses differently.  Is it "work meals" or "groceries?"  "Entertainment" because I golfed with a business associate or just plain "Golf" for fun?  I just spent the afternoon trying to reconcile entries so we can avoid any audit triggers!  Hopefully we can wrap things up before the weekend on this stuff.  

Speaking of golf, I was able to play a few rounds last week.  Some rounds were better than others...  Someone said practice will help with consistency.  I'm still skeptical on that one.  Maybe it's because I don't like to practice...

It's starting to feel like spring here in Austin.  That's great for the golf.  Not so great for allergies!  

Johnny has a couple of doctor's appointments this week -- Rhuematologist and ENT.  Just getting some more routine appointments out of the way.  And I figure he'll have a pre-op appointment one of these days...

Other than that, I think we'll try to have a garage sale this Saturday.  Maybe we can unload a bit more stuff while we're here...  


  1. I do our taxes with Turbo Tax. This is the first year we could claim travel, etc due to working on NOMADS projects. Turbo Tax made is really easy.

    The day of surgery is coming up soon!

  2. Carol,
    I let my ex-husband cut my hair once. OMG! It was worse than anything I've encountered at Walmart. It was his way of saving $4 every six weeks. It only happened once!

  3. Glad to hear the surgery is scheduled. Wish you the best.
