I hate ironing... and tax season



Ironing first...

My daughter says she doesn't iron...
"Mama, just spray it with this Shape Magic or No Wrinkles.. put it in dry and presto no wrinkles."

Well, I think I need a new dryer that does that presto stuff. Besides, my man likes a crisp crease in his jeans and he looks so good in them. I know you ladies that know him is saying, "Amen sister." :)

I really don't mind the jeans but he also wears denim and Wrangler western shirts and even though I hate to iron I have to admit they look better ironed, darn it.

It took me three hours today because I got a little behind (mainly because I hate to do it and there are other things like pounding my head against a post or just about anything's more fun)

Okay, I think you've got the point.... I hate ironing.

Now to the taxes.

Why is it that when you get a little bitty retirement check the federal government wants their part even if you're in the lowest bracket. If they keep this up I might be one of those old people that eat cat food because they ran out of grocery money before their next check.

Don't worry, it isn't that bad yet but come on people... it isn't my fault that I was born during the baby boomer years... and I've worked all these years for that tiny little check and on top of that you up Medicare to the point that when I get old enough to get SS it will all go for Medicare. I'll be living forever on just what I'm getting now. Real bright future for the elderly.

And I would just like to say that the country didn't get like it is because of me... I worked hard while these politicians schemed getting rich on the back breaking work people like me did and now we're old and they have four homes, private jets and money to bribe votes to make laws where they don't have to pay taxes on the money they make. This isn't a political talk... Democrat of Republican ... doesn't matter.. they're all killing us slowly with their greed.

Y'all have a good day now.
