Filing Jointly

by | Feb 28, 2011 | 0 comments

I’ve just itemized your expenses from 2010 in the template given to me by the accountant.  Going through the receipts yet again.  It’s one of the most draining things I’ve done in a while.  Seeing that you gave the extra penny to get back even change on such and such a date broke my already broken heart.  I am thoroughly exhausted and saddened- and…wide awake at 12:30 am.

But it is done.  This is the last time I will file “Married filing jointly.”
