From the “Two In The Box! Ready To Go!” Dept:

Even when you've been preparing tax returns for what seems forever but in reality is almost my entire life (!), there is still that moment of anxiety when you've pushed the button to electronically file a client's tax return where you're wondering if you've forgotten something that's going to cause it to be rejected by the IRS or Department of Revenue. It happens to us all, even those of us compulsive types who reviewed the…

Nothing's the same anymore. Commander Sinclair --- "Chrysalis" --- Babylon 5 Three household goods lorries positively stuffed to the ceilings and it's now time to start the early morning procession to Miguel and Jessica's new home in Wendell for his Permanent Change of Station (PCS). It's been a whirlwind of frenetic activity these past few days to finish the packing and loading and we're literally in the home stretch with the hopes of getting finishing…

One thing you learn after you've moved round a fair bit is that the day of packing and loading the household goods into the lorries is an exercise in patience amongst the chaos.

Who knew it'd be not terribly long after I wandered next door to help schlep the neighbour's stuff onto the first of what…

I had thought that I might well have fulfilled my quota of nitwits menacing the local roads and that thought lasted all of about five minutes after dropping off Katie and heading over to the BJ's petrol station as the Traverse was definitely suggesting that a fuller tank would be infinitely preferable than walking in this chilly weather! Normally there's quite the queue to get into this petrol station which has two one-way entrances on…

On the harrowing journey to deliver Katie to her shift of purveying the fish water at the White Oak Target, we were treated to a two-fer on the back roads that will introduce a brand new category on the BLOG entitled "People I Can Do Without" in homage to the legendary comedian George Carlin who did this bit and was a welcome bit of refreshing venting for those of us whose tolerance for dopey nitwits…
