I really hate this time of the year...I would rather do anything but taxes. Joann's was having such a wonderful sale of the nicer fabric (so I bought more)...BUT...here i sit avoiding my taxes like the plague knowing I need to do them before i stitch a single thing...I wish there was a way to do them faster instead of about 3 weeks...its no wonder i cant get them done. I hate calculating and adding-then to only add another column to make sure not one single penny is off....It doesn't help the fact i never have all the receipts because they are never brought to me in time...

I too hate doing the taxes. But this year I bit the bullet and did them over the past weekend. So now I can relax and stitch. Hopefully it will go fast for you and the taxes will be filed and over with. Hugs, Mary

Here in Australia, anyone in business has to submit what is known as a 'Business Activity Statement' I choose to do ours every Month [can be a quarterly or even annual submission] So I enter all our Expenses and Income into a computer program. [I use MYOB] It spits out my BAS. Then about twice a year the Accountant comes to our house and downloads all the Tax stuff. Easy really. good luck, you'll be sewing soon.

Oh yes, taxes - yikes!! At least this year - hopefully, ours won't be near as crazy to get together - But, I would rather do anything than get tax stuff together and filling out everything!! Good luck! Laura*

At least you are starting now. I tend to wait, because I rather do anything else.

I know how you feel. I am so blessed because my husband gets it all together for the accountant and that is a terrible job in itself. I am so grateful he does it because the accountant would hate me if I had to do it. Be a good girl and set a limit of what you need to get done that day. Then if you get it done, find a design. The next day, get the fabric ready. At least the 10 minute steps make you feel like you are doing something fun each day instead of the drudge of the taxes.

Oh Camylow, I know exactly how you feel! I do the same thing every year and then once it is done, I say to myself "why did you wait, it was not as bad as you thought it would be"! So bite the bullet, girl, and get it done. Hugs. Nan W

I hope that you can find the time to get it all done Deanna. Just do a bit at a time and you'll find it goes quickly. Love Chris
