Tax Day Blues

I wouldn’t say I mind paying taxes.  I know it’s my civic duty.  I understand.


Furthermore, I think that the government is being considerate by collecting on such a wonderful month.  Taxes in January would suck, but April is beautiful.  April is full of colorful clothing and patio dining.

In fact, JCrew currently has a pair of coral toothpick jeans I’ve been craving and I need to get a new bikini because last year’s just doesn’t “look right."

smoothie in blender

So a few weeks ago, when I opened the door to my accountant’s office, the plan was to immediately stimulate the economy afterward.  I walked in with my chin held up high...and walked out with heart palpitations.

An ice cold smoothie seemed to be the only thing that could keep me from breaking a sweat/crying like a baby.  And it worked.  Sort of.

-1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
-1 cup frozen blueberries
