The Weekend

... was long, and trying.
  • WH and I are embroiled in a highly aggravating situation with our accountant over our taxes. High aggravating, and also highly expensive. Sparing you all the details, this situation is the source of significant worry and tension, and has some fairly major financial implications both now and in the year to come.
  • We were this close (you'll have to imagine me holding up my thumb and forefinger about half an inch apart) to getting a pre-list offer on our house this weekend, an offer that would have allowed us to save the commission for our real estate agent. But they phoned yesterday and backed out. They did so for entirely legitimate and understandable reasons, but still, it was disappointing.
Those are the majors and they, coupled with a few other little things, made for a difficult weekend. My reaction to these kinds of things is a strong desire to eat my body weight in jelly beans, which probably isn't helpful.

ugh ... what sucky things!!

also, I could not imagine eating that many jelly beans ... buffalo wings maybe or peanut m &m's!!

Jelly beans? No. Cinnamon rolls? Yes.

I'm sorry that you are having a trying time. I hope that things are resolved very soon.

it wouldn't be all that many jelly beans, after all. Or cinnamon buns...

I'm with CR - not many jelly beans. Go for it.

Sorry it was such a rough weekend.
