Taxes, Blondies, and Blogger Awards

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the encouragement this week! It's just been a weird week, and it continued into yesterday through a date night with Derek that just went to shambles. But what can you do? We'll probably try for another date this weekend and see if we can actually make it through successfully.

Hopefully today will be better, but my hopes aren't too high. We are going to our accountant and giving them our taxes today. Oh joy. Of course if we find out we'll get a tax return (which we usually do), then it will be a good time. Tax appointments can be fun if you get money.

I also need to rush home and make some blonde brownies or something scrumptious afterward, because Derek and I have been going to a Newly Married Sunday school class in town lately, and one of the couples just moved to our area. Which is unusual, because we live in a little rural town - what are the odds?

So I'm snagging the opportunity to make a friend. When you live out in the boonies like we do (okay, not quite the boonies, but you know what I mean), the chances are greatly diminished that there will be any good friend material within thirty miles. So I'm making some blondies as a "Welcome to the Neighborhood" gift, and hoping I'll have some one close by to have lunch with every now and then.

Sorry for all the unstructured posts this week. Next week I actually only work two days (Yay for getting a break!), so I should be back to my normal blogging self.

And I've gotten several blog awards this year which I just haven't posted yet (I know I'm so behind on stuff), so I'll be doling out awards for the next couple weeks too! So keep reading, and if you haven't made yourself known as a reader (ie, commented), now would be the perfect time to do so. And I won't even hold it against you that I had to coax it out of you.

Oh my, I'm silly. You know I'm just teasing! But I really won't hold it against you, and I do love to hear from new readers. So comment away!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Having a hubby who's an accountant makes tax season easier, but I still hate thinking about it! Here's to hoping you get a nice refund! Enjoy your weekend and hopefully another date night as well!
