FREEDOM IS SO CLOSE I CAN SMELL IT!!. In less than two hours tax season will be over for me. I've been sitting at this desk since 7pm last night. It's now 7:40 am. So I will be going home to some much needed rest. It will take me about three days to unwind and get back to being basically a word person. I know from past experience that the transition will seem very slow, but in reality it will only take a minute when it finally happens. I will for all intents and purposes forget all about W2s, deductions, 1099, schedule Cs and a host of other information that would clutter my mind if I didn't put them in their proper files in my brain.

I know, youo're thinking people can't just turn their minds off of something that been swirlling around non-stop in their brain for months. I can!! If I couldn't my mind would be so cluttered that I wouldn't be able to think. I can tell you how it will happen. One day I pick up my check book and realize that I haven't entered the last five checks, or balanced my chedkbook in three months. It will come as a shock to me. However, it will alwo grant me freedom from number crunching on a large scale. I let the checkbook slide for about six weeks before bringing it back into line. I'll put away all my "accountant fine" pens and .o5 mechanical pencils and take up a number 2 pencil and jote down a few words or ideas I want to write about.
that will be the beginning of my return to normalcy. My mind will no longer look only at the price and value of something, but at it's intrinsic value such as does it ring my chimes. I won't put it back just because it isn't in the budget. I'll rearrange the budget to allow it.
And one day I try to calculate the tip on a bill and have to think about it. At that point I will welcome my muse with open arms. I'm sure she'll appreciate that since tax season is hard on her as well. She compains about it every year. She doesn't take kindly to being ignored or shunted aside for numbers or irs forms that need to be filled out.
Well, I'm ten minutes closer to freedom, so I better start packing up all the junk I brought inot the office to make my desk a comfort zone instead of s sterile field operating table. I'll catch you on the flip side afte I check my eyelids for pinholes.
Have a good day all you morning people.
