A Taxing Day

We would like to apologize in advance. You see, today is a very taxing day at Chez Herd.

What are you working on

What are you working on today, Hu-dad?

Yes, this day comes once a year and is one of the most trying, difficult days there is. Hu-dad is stressed and papers are flying.

take cover

I am taking cover. Yes, it is that bad.

We dread this day. Hu-dad spends the day grumbling, moving paper, punching numbers in the computer, and, well, grumbling more.

tax prep day

Income Tax Preparation Day!

Yes, yes, today is the day that Hu-dad tackles that dreaded 1040, the US Income Tax Form. And we all know that there is exactly one thing to do during this annual event.

Someone let me out of here!

    Ice sez: Owoooooie, we know that feeling well! Our hu-Dad is an accountant, so every year, from about February 28th to April 30th is like that at our house. In fact, the hu-Mom says it’s become routine to “forget the hu-Dad even exists” during that time, except for feeding time and bed time!
