And so the weekend comes to a close… with pancakes & taxes & newsletters

I’m exhausted.

I started today with pancakes I requested from the Teenager because she said she had to use up this homemade fruit filling she made for a pie, and it did not set. The pancakes were so damn good I ate at least a dozen.

Then, as we struggled with a carb coma, The Teenager and I tackled our taxes. We both finished federal and state, but I couldn’t efile state because of my schedule C for the business. We both ran out of steam and will file local later. I am getting a federal refund, which I hope will allow me to offset the increase in the Teen driver’s insurance premiums.

And I’m out of half and half– so before my canine therapeutic evaluation tomorrow there will be no coffee at home. This is not the best way to start a Monday. But the service dogs should offset that.

If you really want to see the weekend decline of my eating habits…
