Tax Time Is Upon Us & I Am Just Sitting Here Feeling Miserable

Yep, that pretty much sums up my day at home today - feeling crappy. It's not because tax time is upon us, I can feel lousy without any help from the tax man. This past Friday, I went to see the doc over a sore throat I had for about a week and was told to take some antibiotics. On Saturday, I got pretty sick and I was pretty ill from Saturday through Tuesday. I was too sick on Saturday to get back to the pharmacy to pick up my prescription and only asked my son to go to get it about 5 minutes after the pharmacy had closed. (I thought it was open til 9 but they now close at 6PM on a Saturday - new hours - they have got to be kidding). So, my wife got it for me on Sunday. Then stayed home in bed through Tuesday. Yesterday, I went to work (for some unknown reason) because I thought maybe I was better enough to go and get something done. Then, by yesterday afternoon, I felt crappy again while still at work. Last night it hit me again like a half ton of hippo feathers and I am again feeling like shit today. I guess the antibiotics are not knocking it out and I may have to head back to see the doc again tomorrow. I hope not but, the way I feel right now, I am pretty sure that will be the case.

I did do a little something today, besides sleeping and watching TV when awake, to prevent boring myself to death - though that was not much. I worked on my son's taxes for 2010. If I got them right so far, he should get a decent refund (maybe he will treat me to a cheeseburger & a beer). I have not begun my own tax returns yet. I semi-dread doing my own taxes but that is not why I have not started them, I just don't have almost any of my, or my wife's, tax papers for this year yet. I hate waiting for that stuff because, by the time it all arrives, I usually lose the impetus to get the returns done quickly. Hopefully though, I'll have em done within a week of getting the W-2's and 1099's and such.

All the best,
