It's tax season. As I prepared our tax returns this year, I realized how much I miss individual taxation. I mostly live in the world of flow-throughs and corporations and while flow-throughs are related to individual tax, it's not exactly the same. And when you owe money with your own tax return, it's not exactly the same. My birthday passed at the beginning of the month so I'm feeling all mid-life crisis-y and questioning what I've done with my career because at this point, it's a bit late for any drastic changes.
I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed with all I have to do. I just can't keep up and I spend my weekends running laundry and trying to clean instead of enjoying the weekend. Cleaning is like a circular reference - it never ends. I can never catch up. When we do leave the house on the weekend, I feel like I fall even farther behind. Once the kids are in bed at night and I've eaten dinner, I'm done and too tired to clean or focus on much of anything. I've been trying to go to bed early too. I find that life is more bearable when I'm not exhausted.
Okay, topic change. I managed to get this picture one night last week. It was right before the photography blue hour so the blue isn't deep but I needed to take the picture hand held so pre-blue hour it was. Anyway, see the star? There was a big crescent moon out there one night hanging low but it is still far too cold for me deal with the tripod outside.
Been trying to pick up my camera more. (Still need to order that 50mm lens.)
