I had a very busy day yesterday. I put off everything I had to do during the week and just had to do them yesterday.... Chores, errands, etc. I went to the bookstore and bought a new cook book...."One Pot Meals". I'm always looking for short cuts. I found this recipe for beef stew and made it last night...and although it was a completely different recipe from my Mom's, it turned out to be deliscious!!!! It had shitake mushrooms, orange rind, burgandy cooking wine, plum tomatoes and of course, beef.....what a taste it had, if I must say so myself. I love making stews during the winter.
On another note, I was in the state of panic all week because I asked my accountant two weeks ago to mail my tax return papers (from last year) to me and as of Friday I hadn't received them!
He swore he mailed them to the right address and insinuated it was my fault for having him mail them instead of me picking them up. All sorts of things went through my mind. Someone out there was going to become me! Steal my idenity!! OMG...I've made it this far in life without this! I asked everyone I knew what I should do. Advise was given to put fraud alerts on all my credit cards and my social security number (my hub is involved too, I didn't tell him about this yet). But you know something, deep down in my heart I just had a feeling that this was going to alright. I don't know where that feeling was coming from.
So yesterday I drove to the accountant's office to pick up the "duplicates". He come out of his office and in a sheepishly low voice says "it was my fault". I asked him to repeat that please a little louder. Seems he wrote the wrong address on the envelope.....and it was returned to his office. I was so relieved but I really wanted to kill him! The jerk! And for him to actually imply that I was the dope to have them mailed in the first place! Well, we know who we won't be using as an accountant anymore.
To borrow from Michael C: The thing I learned this week: "not to ask my accountant to mail anything to me and to stop myself from commiting murder."
