taxes suck

So I’m sitting here and I’m supposed to be finding out various things about my little candle business so my mom can do our taxes. I think mainly she needs to know how much I spent last year and how much I made. I tell you right now, it’s in the red!

I must be getting old!

Last night we went out to Applebee’s and then on to Walmart. At Walmart, we were paying for our stuff and I specifically remember thinking how young the cashier looked. I figured he couldn’t be more than 15 or 16. Then I moved up the line and saw that he was wearing a wedding ring!

Wow I must be getting old if people who are old enough to be married are looking like kids to me!

After the other two locations, we got back in the car and drove down to the bottom of the Muny.

These are the pictures we took there, including a couple of “extra” shots I took.

Vandeventer Place & Fountain After the Jewel Box, we just walked around the park a little bit, snapping photos wherever. First we ended up at this little structure that was named Vandeventer Place. Not sure what exactly it was (other than a bunch of columns) but it must have had something to do with the 1904 World’s Fair, I’m sure. Maybe it was a musicians’ stand or something. ;-)

Anyway, here are the pictures from there and just beyond there… I probably won’t post any tomorrow as it’s FFAF, and maybe not until Tuesday when I get to rollover into February. ;-) There are a considerable amount of these more than the last batch and I’m not cropping down the vertical ones (too hard with these) so you’ll have to click “more” to see the photos. :-D (more…)
