I hope your weekend went well and you’re rested and ready for the week.
Just want to check in that folks are doing okay. Holiday season can fucking suck for a lot of people due to sad memories, loss of loved ones, or just general stress at having to be around people who aren’t liked.
I know I have basically zero excitement about Christmas this year. I think mostly that’s because of how sick my asshole dad is and how much I’m helping mom take care of his bullshit.
Side note, please have your affairs in order. Not just like a will or power of attorney, just shit like are your tax records handy? This weekend’s adventures involved trying to get the forms done for a property tax refund. But we need 3 years of income tax returns. After no luck finding 2 of them for my dad, he finally admitted that in 2021 he thinks he mailed the wrong forms and then said fuck it and didn’t do anything. We also can’t find any indication he even submitted his 2022 taxes. I want to be clear – he didn’t have cognitive issues earlier this year. He just is an entitled little asshole who doesn’t want to follow rules.
