Right Doctor Wrong Day

Taxes Submitted – Refund Coming

We were up and at it early this morning.  Ms Barbara had an early morning doctor’s apppointment.  We were out in record time and arrived fifteen minutes early.  Only problem was, we had the right doctor but the wrong day!  Oh well back we go again tomorrow for the real appointment.

Back on the road again we headed to the VA clinic in Brooksville.  Last week I received new hearing aids and they are the greatest.  However, the one for my left ear was not working properly.  I was told to bring it back and the tech would take a look at it.  Well, I dropped it off and was told it would be fixed in about a week.  I’m not holding my breath.

Back home and ready to relax but it was not to be.  We were home just about an hour when we received a call from H&R Block letting us know that our taxes were ready.  They asked us to come in around 5:30 in the afternoon to go over them.  Another trip back to Brooksville.

We had no idea as to what to expect.  Would we owe?  Was a refund due?  Quickly enough we discovered that

we would be getting a refund!  Now how about that.  Not only would we be getting a refund but the refund was for the exact amount that we were quoted for new windows for our house.  But wait it only gets better.  While in the office our tax return was submitted.  Well, by the time we got home – which was a forty five minute ride – we received an email that they had been received and accepted.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  It definitely was a litte bit of this and a little bit of that.  Quite frankly, we’re both just a wee bit tired after the last couple of days.  Matter of fact I believe I’m turning in early tonight.  Sleep tight everyone.

  1. Well, at least you were a day early – rather than missing the appointment! And good news for your tax return! I hope you have a good day today!
