That time of year

Ah yes, that most wonderful time of the year. And I'm not talking Christmas. Nope. Tax time. I just got done writing out checks for thousands of dollars to pay our property taxes. It stinks, but we would rather keep that money in our own account all year and write the big checks than let the bank escrow it. Bye-bye money! Hopefully we'll see you soon in the form of wonderful schools and superb roadways!
