PMS and Taxes

This is it, tax time is definitely here. I can tell because my pulse quickens, and becomes irregular. My hair tends to be unmanageable during tax time, as well. My eyes seem to become shiftier, my sentences more clipped, and my mood agitated. Ok, it could be PMS, as my symptoms are identical, but I am certain it is tax time because Merritt gets a twinkle in his eye. Yes, anything finance related and Merritt gets absolutely giddy..... something that doesn't happen when I'm PMS'ing. I, on the other hand, absolutely HATE discussing, mentioning, thinking about, smelling, looking at, anything related to money! Ok, I do like to spend it, but that's the only thing I like about money! So, when this time of year comes around, I just want to get a heating pad, a pint of Ben and Jerry's "Everything but the...." and crawl into bed watching "Pride and Prejudice". (I do the same when PMS'ing, if you must know! )

Incidentally, when the two come simultaneously....... watch out world! Put a sign on our door that says:

Beware! Proceed with great caution! Enter at your own risk! We are not responsible for loss of life or limb in the event things should go badly while inside. If Erin starts to twitch, even a little, and her breathing becomes shallow and quick, run for your life! (and please take Merritt and Eason with you!)
or perhaps a simpler one would just read:
Watch for flying objects!
