With the taxes all filed ($$$$$$$$$$$$$... ugh), time to move on with the rest of the year.

Men are the problem.

Comment

True, but really it's the system that's the problem, because it lets men "be men." I.e., I don't think you are the problem, just because you are a man.

I keep driving by Stop & Shop workers on strike when leaving or coming home. (The grocery store is just on the edge of the neighborhood.) What am I even supposed to be doing with/for them?

Comment

Shop at grocery stores that are unionized.

There's a thread with alternatives to Stop & Shop in the three states that have strikes: https://twitter.com/AFLCIO/status/1117105395305254912

Honks of support are always appreciated (in addition to not crossing the picket line).

Even when I rudely shove myself into the collective face of the whole wide world, why am I so invisible?

Comment

I usually do the exact opposite just to not be (and not be seen being) rude. However, that means being invisible due to not being truly present. Yielding is a horrible thing.

One of three tax returns filed -- from the former state. It was the one that I had to have filed by tomorrow. Federal and current state are not due until Wednesday because of state and DC holidays the next two days.

Maryland got me pretty good, too. Still, not being able to itemize is crushing me. Thank goodness for being ready for it.

I am planning to do revisions on all of this if I can. Definitely overpaying Maryland, though it is complicated to figure out when my Massachusetts residency began and when I can count my Maryland residency as having ended. I had at least one paycheck taxed in both places. Slightly regretting not getting a CPA as one of my first orders of business once I settled in back in January.

Eldrick does not need a backiotomy, as it appears that he may be back. I do think that the other golfers faltered simply because they saw who was in contention.

Because of the tax law changes, 2018 was the first year that moving expenses were no longer tax-deductible (unless one is in the military). Guess what cost me a lot of money with no employer reimbursement (after being laid off, no less)? *shakes fist*

aw man. that sucks.

I'm not sure how these changes were ever billed as as being helpful to the middle class. I share in your rage.

Lower federal taxes for 2018 compared to 2017, but I am just barely staring at a tax penalty for the first time. :-(

Prepaid legal plan -- do you have one accessible to you as a benefit at work?

Comment

Not that I know of, aside the provisions for employees of the state (if we're a part of legal action as a part of our jobs, our representation by the Attorney General's office is a part of that process.)

Being out of town last week entirely threw off my grocery shopping and meal planning.

Four of the past five months, I have spent the first day of the month in the middle of some form of travel away from home.

On my way back home. Much more driving and thinking ahead.

Home. Getting caught up on stuff. A not-exciting Saturday night at home. Meh.

I'm in the same state tonight. Last night and the night before were a lot.

Lots of quality thinking time on my long driving trip for work this week. Where? Right back to the place from which I moved just 90 days ago. At this point, though... oof. Seven-hour commute, followed by a full day. I was starting to get ready for bed at this time yesterday.

Ouch! Stay alert and safe, please!
