Tax Season :P  
The hardest week of work for us is always the final week before tax season is over - since everyone seems to wait until the very last minute each year to open IRAs or make contributions. :P There are A LOT more trades than normal and everyone's morale in the office is REALLY low because we're all so exhausted and irritable. :P Thankfully, this is Day 2 of the tax week from hell and with any luck it'll be over soon.

Speaking of waiting until the very last minute, Mark finally did our taxes this weekend. :) We were fortunate enough to get a tiny refund this year - with our mortgage interest going down and our income up a little from last year, we were pretty sure we'd end up having to pay this year, so we're pretty happy about it. :)

Sorry I've been so bad about updating and commenting lately... When I get home the only thing I want to do is cuddle up with the hubby and fuzzy dog and fall asleep. :P I have been reading all of your entries and I promise to start commenting again once I get my energy/motivation back.

On a better note, I finally got a rental car for my April trip for $12.70 a day - special thanks to bigrivermusical for telling me about Sidestep.Com. :) So aside from getting my tickets for the Long Beach show, I'm all set for my LA trip - which is only... *goes to look at ticker*... 11 days away! :) Yay! I could really use the time away from the office after this week! :)

Finally, before I run off to work, I just wanted to wish darlaree a very happy birthday today!! :D Hope you have a wonderful day!! :D

Thanks Kristen! I hope that you're doing well, as I know it's been a little stressful for you as well. *HUGS*

I'm sorry that you have such a stressful week at work.

And, only 11 days - I hope you will have a wonderful time and so that you forget quickly the stress at work then. :)

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri. :)

I'm so glad I get my taxes done early. I can't imagine the mad you are dealing with.

That's so great that you did your taxes early - I can't imagine why anyone would wait until the last week to get it done. :P Yesterday we had over 200 IRA contributions that I had to review and approve. :P Everyone really likes to wait until the very last minute. :P

Awww, you're sweet Doug - but you've always been a great LJ friend and have always had the time to comment even when you were really busy at work. :) And I could really use the de-stressing of another LA trip. :)

Glad to help you out! $12 for a rental car is a steal, cheaper than a cab ride! I hope 4/15 comes and gone soon for you.

Thanks so much! You really saved me - I was really worried about the rental since I rarely wait until the last minute to make my arrangements. Hope you have fun on your DC trip! :)

Tax time is so stressful, just filing taxes. I couldn't imagine having to deal with anything like that in my job. I'd have a nervous breakdown.

The trip to LA sounds fun, though! =)

Thanks, Andrea - things were actually pretty calm today, surprisingly - thankfully the week is almost over. :)

Yay for the tax refund, but boo for having to fill in tax forms.

The tax refund was a nice surprise. :) I don't think we'll be getting one next year - so I'll have to enjoy this. ;)
