Here's the thing,
When it comes to paperworky-type stuff, something comes over my mind and body and I am paralyzed with fear and dread. My palms get sweaty, I feel close to tears, my head starts to spin. So what usually happens is I put it off and have stress dreams for months.
Today though, TODAY I conquered NOT ONE, BUT TWO of those mind crippling tasks that make me want to throw myself on the floor and cry.
After two years of marriage, I finally legally became a Jones. Drew Jones escorted me downtown and after two metal detectors, a purse frisk and a ride on 3 separate elevators we found the right floor in the right building. I took a number and we sat down and soon enough this lady, formerly known as Momany, became Jones.
The second thing I did
We almost caved and paid someone 300+ dollars to do them for us. But I got up this morning and diligently conquered our taxes in my bathrobe.
When I was done Drew Jones hugged me and called me a hard worker and I shook my head. He said I was very smart and I shook my head. I told him, "I just didn't want to pay someone $300 dollars." And he said, "ohhh, you're a cheapskate." And I nodded, yes.
We celebrated this afternoon with lunch at Dirty Franks.
We both ordered a Reuben hot dog and shared tater tots and mac n'cheese. I also ordered a drink that involved sweet tea, lemonade and vodka. I'm not gonna lie, I felt a bit tipsy when we left and ended up taking a looong leisurely nap at home.
It was gooood. Cheers to checking things off the list and sleeping like a baby.
