Serious Relief

Well, I took a look at the online account stuff, and I can see that the US Treasury has deposited the check that I sent to pay my federal taxes. That confirms a few different relief-inducing things:

  • I put the returns in the correct envelopes (I thought I did, but you know how you always obsess about these things).
  • The federal return actually arrived (I already got notification about the Alabama return through Registered Mail tracking).
  • The return I actually owed money on has been received.

Extremes

Half a week later… and if anything, the extremes of my feelings are worse instead of better. If given the chance, I’m not sure whether I’d throttle her or thank her. There’s not much room for anything in between right now. Either way, I’m pretty sure I’d be bawling while doing it.

know she wasn’t happy, though. I hope she finds happiness. That’s the honest truth.

I said that I didn’t know which, but I do want to say “thank you” for the best 14+ years of my life (so far).

The wreck today

Now that I have some time, I figure I should let everyone know that I was rear-ended this morning. Me and the other driver were both unhurt. No one else was in our cars, and our two cars were the only ones involved. Honestly, it was very minor. What the other driver gave as his description matched mine.

In a good mood

I figured it was a good idea to post about this for a couple of reasons. One is that my web log tends to serve as a set of “reference points” for my memory: a way to anchor events to definite times for when I go back and see them later. Like I’ve said before, I realize that this web log is mostly for me. However, I do know that a few other people keep an eye on it, and when a positive event happens in my life, it’s nice to share it with those people (especially right now when positive things are fairly rare in my life). Anyway, the “positive event” is that I’ve realized I’m in a good mood this morning. That’s all. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but I bet there are at least 3 or 4 people out there who will cheer when they see this. Smile

San Francisco Vacation Musings

added July 4, 2014: I noticed that this never got published. I’m not sure why not, but my first guess is that I was still working on it a bit at a time. Well, even without the wreck, I wouldn’t be able to remember the emotional details that I was shooting for. So, I’m just going to come up with an approximate date and go ahead and publish it. –Jeff

I’ve been trying to figure out how to write about my recent awesome vacation to San Francisco. I realized that if I concentrated on what I did, it would sound like an elementary school report. Instead, I’m going to give a shot at talking about how I felt about some of the things I did and saw. If nothing else, it will be more original. 🙂
