Should've rested today, but oh no.

Couldn't and didn't.

Instead what do I do? Kick it in high gear, clean the kitchen, run the dishwasher, FINISHED my taxes, and am almost through with T-casso2 guitar painting. Gads. I don't know when to stop. I need an internal governor or something.

But ohhhhhhhh how Federal owes me this year, because I took a HUGE HIT on my early 401K withdrawal. They cut the hellia out of me, thus garnering me 40% of it back. On top of the other taxes cut, and me not making any money. This year will be similar to last year's with the exception of the state of Alabama. They only owe me $13. I will be able to fix the car (and brakes), and also get Mountain Brook off my back once and for all. After that, life'll be gravy, baby. Okay, not that but it's improving a little bit, right? Ja.

I spoke with a long-time friend today on the phone, and ohhhhhhhh the memories. Funny how our day-to-day lives sap those memories totally from our conscious selves until that memory reaches up from where it hides, and smacks you in the face. It was a lengthy and nostalgic conversation wherein we both committed to keeping in touch with each other regularly. There's no sense in our alienation thing, since we do live but 45 minutes apart.

Did I mention how happy I am that my taxes are done, and that they owe me more than the $300 I initially thought they owed me? Yeah. I'm afraid, however, that mi carro has suffered internal damage due to inclement weather and my neglect in having the top replaced. I couldn't help it. I couldn't/(still can't) afford it. Mazda wanted $5,000 to repair the roof. UNREAL. The guys who originally replaced my back windshield, however, are only charging $650 for the whole thing! Kinda makes me wonder what, exactly, Mazda was gonna charge me for and why. That's the only downside to owning an M-class Miata; you can only buy "Mazda" parts (fuses, etc.). Grrrrr. It's a money sucking hole from hell. Sorta like my former boss. Hahahaha.

And I find myself AGAIN in a foul mood over *that* situation, the one which I dare not speak of in polite and public company, but am wont to rail about in a private or tightly-filtered entry. *sigh* I'd hoped that this time would be different; but I know better. Still...there's NO excuse this time.

And now what do I do??? How am I to believe?

I hush before I say too much. That's what I do.

And here I go. I'm tired.

Before entering my 401K dispersement, I had $312 coming back to me. It's a crying shame that the government took such a HUGE chunk out of that money, and that I'll get back what I am. I mean, that was for "retirement". Instead, it went towards me being unemployed from the end of January last year, until I got down to the nitty gritty.

Ohhhhhhhhhh, I owe. I wish I'd gotten back ALL that they took from me.

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
