So, it was a writing and packing weekend, here at the Cat Farm and Confusion Factory. We have not sold the house; the packing involved getting a Bunch of Old Stuff out of the file cabinets and into boxes, which will hopefully and eventually wander off to an archive. If not, they’ll be dumped, because I’m not moving this stuff; it’s of no further use to us, and! if we do eventually move, my ideal is to have a writing space that is not only phone-free, but has the bare minimum of file cabinets. By which I mean one.
In related news, besides generating some of my own, I have answered All the Emails. If you were expecting an reply from me and don’t have anything in your inbox, now is the time to resend.
Over the weekend, our accountant called us with the news that we owed the various governmental agencies taxes, which was surely no surprise. The surprise was how much money in taxes we owed. Ow. And sigh. Just when I start thinking that taking 33% off the top of each and every check we receive really is overkill. . .the method is vindicated.
It’s a bright and very cold day here in Central Maine. The icicles are leaping off of the roof. I intend to stay in, with the internet turned off, and get some work done.
Hope everybody’s having a lovely Monday.
