Marita’s gone off overseas with Justine to explore San Francisco and surrounds.
Management of time is often an issue for me, and I in no way want to say that her presence is a cause of me not getting things done.
But I thought that while she’s gone for three weeks, I might have some time on my hands. So here are some things I intended to do while she’s away:
- My tax return, which was due at the end of October
- and my Dad’s
- Ceiling fan for the livingroom
- The new washing machine (I’ve pretty much settled on the Bosch)
- Clear our my Dad’s unwanted books from the house
- Replace the kitchen halogen lights with low-watt LEDs
- Start my next blockbuster eBay auction
Reality is though, I’ve found myself busier than ever. For example, tonight there’s a dinner, tomorrow I’m going to a protest and then Trish’s wedding!
Marita will be back next weekend, and all I’ve got done so far is the washing machine, which arrived on Wednesday. (Just as well — when the old one got moved, I found bits of metal and ball bearings. It was not well.)

What’s that- you haven’t done your tax return? Well, in case you haven’t paid your tax, there’s always hope for you Daniel! You might consider becoming US Treasury Secretary, just like Timothy Geithner, who also didn’t pay his taxes:
Go figure, the man responsible for the IRS, didn’t pay his taxes- bizarro world indeed!
That is pretty bizarro. However in my case, my rough calculations indicate I’ll get a small refund, so yes, I’ve paid my taxes.
You could always find someone else to help you with the books.
