Last weekend I got my taxes filed, and I'm very grateful that I have refunds heading my way, despite not receiving an number of receipts for charitable contributions for last year. As least my church and IJM didn't mess up because of my move, and that was enough. Also delighted my state tax refund is already inbound, and what I get will be more than enough to compensate for my Use Tax, once I finish calculating that.
Stayed late at work Monday for the monthly publish, which thankfully went a whole lot better than the one back in February. Got out before 6 pm, and nothing major blew up the day afterward. Whew!
I love that there's enough spending and charitable donations flowing through my Amazon credit card on a regular basis that I earn enough in credit card points to get a book or a dvd (or some practical boring purchase) nearly every month. The book I got this last weekend is really blessing me. So grateful!
The "plague" that has been going around my side of the department, and has now hit five of the eight of us, finally came knocking on Tuesday. But, thanks be to God's mercy, I appear to just be saddled with a milder version that has settled deep in my lungs but not badly trashed my health. This is my third day...so I just might be able to slide through without it turning into something major. Not happy to have to quarantine myself, but very happy I don't have to miss work for days on end like some of my coworkers.
