Menu of the Day:
I haven't done this in awhile. So let's order up:
Music: Shawn Mullins "Can't Remember Summer"
In my glass: I know, i know, it's Wednesday and i've been pretty good during the weekdays with all this running, but today i poured an Evodia Spanish red blend. It's so good.
The reason i'm drinking on Wednesday: This special legislative session is taking over my whole work day. I get to the office this morning with stuff to do and i get an email from Communications asking if i can write a Letter to the Editor about health care. Plus i had to meet with veteran union members during my lunch-time taking notes on my laptop for another communication. I didn't start my run this evening until 7 pm cause i was tweaking my letter after i got some Communications feedback late in the day.
Who am i kidding?: it's not the first time i've been drinking wine on Wednesday.
The best news this week: I got a letter from the IRS. It told me that i missed a 1099-B form when i filed my taxes last year and we owe $4000. I freaked out. (I cannot stand those capital loss/gains new reporting requirements.) So i called the tax guy we use at work. Not only do we NOT owe $4000, we are getting back $760. So then i sent him the 2011 taxes i had already done on Turbo Tax. And he found me another $300. (Though part of that was carryover loss from the amended 2010 taxes.)
What we're going to do with that money: I am going to get my Xanax prescription filled and next year we are going to Hawaii for two whole weeks. That's our plan.
Funny thing my husband did this past week: See that photo above? That's his new soup recipe. (No, this one doesn't have lettuce in it.) I honestly have no idea what's all in it, but i do remember raw cashews. But isn't it ugly? It does taste better than it looks. (Linda and Amanda, if you are reading, i blame this on both of you!)
Good thing about my husband's cooking: My jeans are fitting better. I am not sure if it is the healthy recipes he is cooking or the fact that i don't want seconds. (I can say that because i don't think he's been reading my blog lately!)
What i am procrastinating about: I bought a pair of $79 yoga pants one night from Garnet Hill while Facebooking and drinking wine when i should have gone out for a run. (This time it was on a Tuesday, not a Wednesday.).I don't even do yoga. I am not even sure they look good on me. I need a true friend who will tell me the truth about the VPL...
