CP called me and told me that he wondered this morning while getting ready, looking at all the stuff I have in the bathroom, why it is that I buy things to do, what God has already done for me. It was his nice way of telling me I'm naturally beautiful.
I said well, if I didn't use all that stuff, I wouldn't be, I'd have wrinkles and dry skin and nappy hair. He told me I didn't have to look 16. I told him, to tell that to the rest of the world. I'm not comfortable aging. At least I know that when I inevitably do start to show my age, despite the lotions and potions and hair dye...that he will still think I'm pretty.
I've been up since 8 a.m. on my day off, struggling with my taxes. I filed an extension on my federal, so I'll owe them a lot more in the end. But I don't have the $ to pay the assholes. I paid my state tax outright, which wasn't as bad. I am not filing my city where I live. You hear me? Come and take me away! They want a percentage of my total income, minus what I paid already to the TWO cities I work in! Taxed in triplet, I'm a lucky fucking girl! More and more, this second job is costing me more than I'm getting for it. When all is said and done I'll be paying out over $1,000 to the government, when I've already paid them all they deserve! I'm sick over it. Any time I lose sleep, we've got problems!
The sun is shining! I've scrubbed my carpets, soaked all my mini blinds, cleaned my windows, and now I'm off to the store to get a sweeper belt. I'm hoping that will work and I can use my sweeper again. 7 pets and no sweeper for a week, makes for a freaking mess to end all messes! I can't not have a sweeper, nor can I afford to buy a new one! Maybe I shouldn't have thrown the stupid thing, but you'll have that! Then I'm off to work outside in the yard, and soak up some sunshine!!! It is such a perfect day!
