It's Tax Time - T Minus 5 Days

Yep, here it is, April 10th, and I still have not done our taxes!  What the heck am I thinking?  I've always done it early but this year, it just slipped away from me.  I guess I just need to buckle down and get to it.  It seems like such a pain though.  I often wonder if I would really want to be a tax accountant.  I don't know.  Maybe.  Maybe not.  Thank goodness for TurboTax though.  It makes the whole process so much easier.

Update:  I finally got the taxes done and filed.  Yay!  Now, hurry up auto-deposit.  Melon Man and I have been discussing what to do with the refund.  This is probably the best refund we've ever gotten and we are so grateful for it.  I want to just put it in the bank.  He wants to go to Disneyland.  We finally agreed to pay the entire thing on my truck.  Yeah, not a fun decision, but probably a wise decision.  That, along with the money from my raise added to our regular amount we've been paying on the truck and it should be paid off in about 5-6 months!  That feels incredible.  What a blessing it will be to have that paid off.  We already plan on adding the money from the truck payment to the house payment so we can get that paid off a lot faster too and be completely debt-free.  Oh what a happy day that will be when it finally happens!
