Enjoying the Outdoors
Ok so it’s spring for reals this time, no fake outs with some nice weather followed by a sudden blizzard. Winter jackets are officially retired, boots packed away, all my warm weather clothes getting dug out of boxes and dusted off. Life is so much easier when the weather is nice, we are settling back into our normal routine of going to pick up the little guy from daycare, stopping at the park, letting him run around with his buddy for another hour or 2, then coming home and letting him play by himself or watch some Mother Goose Club while dinner is prepped. He’s tired and happy, and so is everyone else.
It’s also tax season, which is always exhausting. Doesn’t seem to matter how prepared I am for this, always seems to take me up until the deadline to actually get it done, and that’s WITH an accountant. We have a somewhat complex tax situation though, since I used to work in the US and still have stock vesting from grants there. Ends up being that I get double taxed like crazy, and have to reclaim it all at the end of the year. The nice thing is the giant ass refund that we get because of it, although technically it’d be nicer just not to overpay throughout the year.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is a giant letdown.
Happy with our haul this month, nothing fancy going on this month with options or anything else. Didn’t buy much either, haven’t cashed out a lot of my stock from work, maybe in the next month or 2 and we should see an uptick in purchases shortly after.
