As a kid I couldn't wait to fool my dad on this day. I'd carefully plot out a way to "get him" and in looking back I wonder if I really did or if he let me? School teachers probably bear the brunt of this day with little ones trying to prove their independence and many Family magazines have recipes so mom can fool her kids by serving them a scoop of ice cream that looks real but is really mashed potatoes. With the general consensus being that women are too busy I really hope some find time for this lightheartedness.
Taxes are looming. It seems no matter when I get my tax stuff to my tax prepared he still waits till the last minute to get the goods, or make that the maybe not so good, back to me. My financial guy says that the tax guy spends most of this season collecting clients then finishes everyone at the last minute. I'm told this is how most preparers work. It's a frustrating piece but a relationship I've had for too many years. My options would be to start fresh with a new accountant, download a program and do it myself or stick with the tried and true year after year professional I've come to trust. The trust is going to win out on this, so as I sit and wait perhaps I should mix up a batch of mashed potatoes. There's still time left to fool my kids.
