Definitely skippable

I've sat here for a good 20 minutes wondering what to write about. While it may appear effortless, the constant issuing of posts, varied and (journalistic? diaretic?) in nature, the way I write here, let me assure you that there's a wee knot inside always tensing and narding itself up about it. Especially when it comes to days like this, with nothing all that scintillating to report.

Yesterday, I did the taxes.

And I filed electronically over the internet for both federal and provincial. Then I realized that I had probably made a mistake. I said to myself, there was no place to mark the sale of our home last year. Later, I remembered the question, Is there any other income received that you did not report above? Maybe that's where I should have put it. Oh well, as I understand it, it's tax free, the appreciation of your principal residence. I'll call or something.

I told you it wasn't scintillating.

The weather has changed (see, another exciting topic) and we hit 50F for the first time this year yesterday. I took Sara out again for a walk yesterday afternoon, and it was really slushy and muddy in the park. T'was beautiful and sunny though.

Okay, I'm boring myself. See ya tomorrow.

Ahhh...early Spring!!!
Nice, isn't it?
It's gotten warmer here, too.
It's supposed to be in the upper 60s today! And our pair of ducks is back to make a nest somewhere.
They always return around mid-March.

I, too, am having trouble with topics to post. Or else I have a topic and I can't put it into the words I want (writer's block?) Until today, I went a week without posting and normally it's 3 or 4 days!

My taxes were sent in in early February and I'm expecting a good refund. So I'm worried that it hasn't arrived yet. I'm in the states so I don't know how Canada handles home sales.

Holy crap! You've already done your taxes? I am just beginning to gather up the various forms to send my accountant.

I haven't even started our taxes yet. Blah!

You have a knot that is narding? Should you maybe get that checked out?

Well, the weather isn't boring, and as a bonus I get to read about T's ducks.

Taxes though, you were just trying to be boring there, right?

Sometimes boring is comfortable.

And I still need to get my taxes done.

Unless the house you sold was NOT your primary residence, you don't have to declare it.
