Did you was a deadline?

I had a visitor drop by who happens to be a great friend...thank you Vicki because I am feeling terribly brain damaged right now. I have the worst headache brought on by the state of Ohio. Today was the deadline for paying my state taxes for my Whispers and Echoes Studio. The state of Ohio has decided to make it easier for us now...right....NOT! I have been on the computer for over three almost 4 hours trying to make my payment...with no success. So I am a wee bit grumpy ...grouchy ...well I feel darn mean at this very moment. See I am not perfect and I do have my Irish temper roaring right this moment. I do have my Inchie for Monday completed and the word this week is maudlin... sentimental ...tearfully intoxicated....well you get the idea. I hope you like this process...I am already working on next week's theme. I hope your Monday went better than mine....I cannot complain because I did make it down the driveway and safely to the is downhill since then. I shoveled half of the driveway tires were burning rubber as I attempted to get back up the hill...can you get the picture? Actually the shoveling was therapeutic ...especially when I tried to work out the tax payment. Have a good evening...I am going to work on slow cloth stitches now and try in an hour to pay my taxes like a good little citizen....grrrr! Imagine Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart


  1. I love your inchies!!

    Man oh man good luck on those taxes....LOL look on the bright side....paying t axes means possible making money :) *hugs*

  2. OMG, I did the deadline thing too with the state taxes. It is such a pain in the ass not talking to a real person. The automation just can't do any thinking. I ended up having to call back three times, but finally paid for it on deadline. It makes me not want to have a business for such hassle.

  3. I will try to remind you when they are due again...if my brain is functioning at the time.
    We can't be on top of everything, at least that's what I tell myself. I'm actually starting to believe it! It was great to visit with you today. Thanks for the treat, Erin's caramels are WONDERFUL!
    Love and prayers, Vickie

  4. Great inchie! Clever way to do the edges. Hope the rest of your week gets better!

  5. Lovely inchie, extra sweet with your tiny stitches and seed beads Mary Helen.

    Me thinks things can only get better now?
    Good news is the tax stuff will be behind you for a while!

    Lovely snow pics...we may actually get a little white stuff tomorrow...but we'll see if the weather guessers got it right :)
    take care my friend!
