Tax time is over. This is stuff that is late.

I have done everything but assemble it. I will get a couple of hours of sleep and then get up and assemble it. I'm pooped.

I bet you are tired Taxy!

We get an accountant to do our tax...you have a better chance of getting some money back with accountants

You must be very busy when it is tax time over there

It is never over--businesses can have a different calendar year if applied for before...I don't know, 1998--so there is a timeline after the end of one's year end when the tax return has to be filed...And then there are the HST/GST returns that can be monthly, quarterly or annually...so, accountants and bookkeepers can be kept busy year around here.

Do you know anyone who is signed up with Melaleuca (most, if not all, of their cleaning stuff has tea tree oil in it)? Spraying the mattress with something that has tea tree oil in it would take care of the dust mites.
Thanks, TL. I heard someone (supposedly an expert of sorts) say that dust mites like it under the covers and thrive there in the dark -- her advice was to flip the covers open in the mornings and expose the mites to air and light. Translation -- don't have to make the bed anymore, at least that's how I interpreted it. There's no one to tsk, tsk at me, so now I just skip that daily chore based on the above advice. Could be it's not working....tea tree oil, huh?

I have another possibility. When the a/c was replaced a couple of months ago, there was residual dust coming from the ducts when the a/c came on. I'm hoping any offending particles will be flushed out in time.

I think I've weathered the storm! I'm halfway through a cup of coffee, I had a bowl of cereal AND a piece of pizza last night! I feel quite my old self again! WOOHOO! The weather cooled off so much last night I had to use a blanket! Its going to warm up again to scorching today, but it will feel OK after that brief reprieve.

I'm going to finish this coffee and head to the grocery store while its still quiet around here.

It's done! I got about three hours of sleep and it is now assembled and ready for the client. I'm getting too old to try to get by on three hours of sleep.

One and a partial year still to get done, but Monday or Tuesday will be good enough. No scary letters for the government about that stuff.

Alix, glad to read that you are feeling better.

I am attempting to repair and save a large case that I use to transport my percussion hardware in. It is very old but I love it. I could buy a new one but they are all too big to fit in my trunk so they are no good to me. They also make soft bags but they are no good for stacking gear. Looks like a job for duct tape and probably small nuts and bolts.
