Tax Time ~ ugh!

April 15th snuck up on me this year ~ I am ashamed to admit that I have had to get an extension and prolong the misery! I have devised a rather inventive way to organize my taxes ~ out of necessity rather than cleverness.
Over the past several months we have been working on a large home project ~ fixing the cause of sagging ceilings and flooring the attic so that it can be used for storage. Because of this project, the rest of my house is filled with all sorts of items I plan on putting in the attic ~ BUT, the stairsteps are all cleared off to allow the contractors access to the attic thus providing me with the only available space to organize my paper work. Unfortunately, the system is not dogproof, nor did it ensure my success at completing my taxes on time. Curses!

Looks very familiar... Although I must admit, my staircase looks like that all the time. A great space for storage ;-) But, a very true noitice about it not being dogproof. My dog sometimes slips over my stuff. Poor Pepper!

Love the picture though! And love your blog

Thanks for visiting girls! I WAS wondering how many times the IRS has heard the "dog ate my taxes excuse"?! Speck has not paid much attention, but Sprocket has sampled a few pieces from different piles - I am tempting the gods the longer they remain unfinished!
