Today Was ... Not Bad, Eh?

That's a phrase from My Home and Native Land, and it suits today. I only got one micro-managing email from The Boss From ... uh ... Heck. That's not bad, eh? I didn't eat healthily today, but I didn't go overboard on chocolate, as has been the case in recent weeks, so that's not bad, eh? (Yes, I know that chocolate is always On Point, but man, have I ever been eating a lot of it.)

I'm getting out of my awful meeting before 9:30 p.m., which is not bad, eh? 

And we're getting more than $2,000 back in overpaid taxes. That surprises me, because I was certain we'd end up owing. So ... not bad, eh?

Sounds like some good things are coming your way, eh? The tax refund sounds amazing. I had a good one this year, though not as good as last year (one downside to earning more money, LOL).

I was a little surprised, as I said, at the tax return, in large part because I wasn't certain how much, if any, of the changes the Tax Scam passed in October would screw us over with. Apparently nothing, at least for 2017. We'll see what happens at the end of this year. I'm glad you had the win-win situation of having a decent return, and earning more money!

Yes, I'd worked at Wee College on my previous skimpy salary for nine months. I'd only worked at Monday College for three months, so I hadn't made enough money to get hit too badly on my taxes. We'll see what happens next year. I suspect the Great Tax Scam isn't going to really impact me all that much--my accountant did a quick and dirty calculation, and it looks like six of one, half a dozen of another. I'm having a little extra taken out for state taxes each month, because that's where I tend to be hit the hardest. According to the Commonwealth, I'm a "high earner" (even when I was at Wee College and hadn't had a raise in 3 years), which always makes me ROTFL.
