Temperature 69 Degrees
First Step Forward
Time To Pay Up
Ah what a beautiful cold, crisp morning. When we awoke it was 42 degrees outside and a nice brisk 59 degrees in our living room. As long as it doesn’t go down in the 30’s we usually leave the heat off at night. The first one up – guess who – gets to turn the heat pump on inorder to warm up the house.
We didn’t have any early morning appointments so we just sort of eased into the day real slow. A cup of coffee or two and a muffin got us started.
We had one phone call to make this morning which once it was over convinced us that – yes – we were going to have to have someone do our taxes this year. But before we get to that. . .
I had an appointment at my urologist for my first hormone shot. Now, I won’t go so far to say that I’m a chicken when it comes to needles. But suffice to say I do have a strong dislike for them.
Especially when someone is poking one anywhere into my body. Even more so when its my gluteus maximus that is the intended target.
Well, I’m sure you can guess what the intended target was this afternoon. And for the next 12 shots!
Of course the one with the sharp, pointy thing in their hand always says I guarantee you this won’t hurt a bit. I felt like saying, OK, if that is so you give me my shot and I’ll give you one for good measure.
One down, eleven more to go.
Time now to pay up. Like in Lets figure out how much we owe this year in taxes. Ms. Barbara usually does our taxes but not this time. She took one look at the twenty six pages of forms that she had received regarding our taxes and just shook her head.
So off we went to the local H&R Block office in Brooksville. Ms Barbara took everything in and came out in a bit saying that she felt comfortable with the tax preparer who would be taking care of our taxes. Oh, I’m sure we’ll end up owing, the only question is how much.
Home again it was time prepare lunch. This one we could handle. I fired up the grill and prepared a bunch of boneless pork ribs. Ms Barbara added some spanish rice and vegtables to the mix and we had one delicious lunch.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. It was another easy going day that we absolutely enjoyed together. We accomplished what we set out to do. That’s good enough for us.
