A Change of Plans

We had such big plans for 2011.  We were gonna finish concreting the driveway.  (It’s a fairly big drive.  We did half of it already.)  We were going to put in a new French door.  We were going to pay extra towards a loan to have it paid off by the end of the year (three years early).  We were going to take some trips.

Then we had our taxes done yesterday.

And since I hear jail isn’t all that fun, rather of doing all those fun things we will be paying the IRS a disgusting amount of money instead.

We’ll be living like the poor folk for a while because… well, because we’ll BE the poor folk for a while.
