Yet another morning of lots of clouds and rain to wake up to….. still good as we are getting the intermittent showers versus the deluge that normally hits us. It is a really good thing for the island, but I feel bad for anybody vacationing here this week. The temperatures are still a wonderful warm, but it is not what you want when you’re wanting to lay on the beach and come back home with a show off tan (or sunburn). Still lots of fun things to do – you just don’t have that fabulous sunshine we have 95% of the time to do it in……..
After we finished breakfast and a little bit of TV, my bride started playing her game and me, for what turned out to be almost 3 hours, was on the phone with 9 different institutions chasing down some intel I needed for a recent tax issue that came up. I think I mentioned earlier, that I got a notice from the IRS saying that I didn’t file a specific 1099R from the year 2017 and because of it – they needed an additional $20K in taxes…….. not the type of mail you like to get. I forwarded the mail on to my tax lady and she has been chasing it. She sent me her information this morning and I spent the afore mentioned 3 hours getting the details she needed. To make a long, maddening story short —- We now “only” owe [another] $6000….. I guess I should be happy, but have just not quite got myself there yet. DAMMIT EMMIT~!! That’ll sure put a crimp in your fun budget…… but whadda ya gonna do ???
Finally got that mess cleaned up <painfully> and settled in to get my bride fed. She wanted steak…… I wanted pizza. I actually wanted pizza last night, but that didn’t happen, so I take it when I can get it. I ordered a pizza to be delivered and put on a steak for Angie. My pizza showed up – just barely room temperature and really skimpy on toppings, which was quite stressful to me as it cost me $ 54.00 to get it…….. Ahhh Island Life. My mood must have transferred to my cooking, as after about 3 bites, Angie was up looking for A-1 sauce (my cue she doesn’t like the cook job on the steak). Well hells bells, I was out of onions [oops]…. and now she wants A-1……… pretty much the adequate end to that afternoon…… Rain forecast through the weekend now….. guess I better run up and get some onions and A-1 sauce or it’s gonna be a really long week….. Going to see if I can get pictures to load tonight. I went up and complained to the building manager about needing a new router….. but got the impression, she didn’t give a rats a$$ about my router problem…….. she’s probably out of onions too……..
Good Night Ya’ll – – – – – – – – – – Thankx for stopping in~!
