3 more days until Normalcy

My wonderful husband of 11 years is a partner in an accounting firm here in town, so he has been working his heart out for our family for the past 4 months. He pretty much starts buckling down the middle of December and goes non-stop from there. April 15th is Wednesday and it couldn't come any sooner. What is normal for our life though...I don't have any clue. I have become very accustomed to this and the kids and I have learned to do our thing for the past 4 months.

I think the hardest tax season we had was 2 years ago when E's grandmother passed away. She past away 4 or 5 days before tax season was over. I was working with a 2 and 5 yr old, trying to visit the nursing home as much as possible. I basically made most of the decisions myself for her funeral...that had to be the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Luckily people understood and our friends were wonderful!

So the project list will begin...
Prepare yard for play yard, purchase and install
Clean kids rooms and paint
Get in shape for vacations this summer

That's just the beginning and what I can think of...I know E will come up with some other things soon!
