It is finished

Well hello there.

I have survived the dreaded tax day both at work and at home.

Yesterday was such a blur and I am still recuperating. I work for a company that has a huge base of tax customers. Two of my queues deal with passwords and updating emails for online customers. A lot of these customers are tax customers so you can just imagine how busy I have been lately – well I have told you all how busy I have been but now you will really understand just how busy I have been (if I told you the name of my company then you would know how EXTREMELY busy I have been). Last year there were 4 of us working my queues. This year it was just me. I usually handle around 400 cases a week. Last week I did some overtime and processed maybe 550. Well yesterday I did 260!!! After that I feel like I don’t have to work for the rest of the week. LOL!

After work I headed home to finish my own taxes. I totally forgot to even eat. Poor DH just kept coming in and checking on me to make sure I was still alive. Sometimes having a home business really does cause a lot of work and frustration but I got everything completed at 11:40pm and realized that there was no way I was going to get to the post office in time. So for the first time – ever – I eFiled. I finished transmitting at 5 minutes until midnight and off to bed I went. Much better than driving around at midnight even if I did have to pay $30.00 to eFile. :-(

Well….it is back to work for me. Want some new music to listen to? Then I would suggest Frou Frou and Imogen Heap which I have been playing over and over. Oh and Phantom Planet (just found them today). I used to be so on top of the music scene (well the music I like anyways) but as I get older I don’t know as much. But I can still surprise DH with what I know about music especially music from the 80’s and 90’s.


  1. Glad you got them done! I love efiling. It makes life so much easier :) I always use a program that gives me a rebate on my efiling fee.

    Now you can scrap!!

  2. I use Turbo Tax. I guess starting this year they no longer give rebates for eFiling. Figures since this is my first year eFiling. I used the desktop version. I guess I could have gotten my filings for free if I used the online version but I have dial up and that would not have worked for me. Luckily with work I get to still get a rebate on the Federal filing (just have to fill out a form) but that takes 5 weeks or so to get my money back and it is only a rebate on the Federal. There is no rebate for eFiling my State form. Oh well....I cannot complain as it was a convenience for me as I did not have to leave the house.

♥ Comments make me Oh so very happy! :-) ♥
