Snag or Tag and Random Thoughts


I was just thinking today, which is probably a dangerous thing, but St. Patty's Day is March 17th.  Less than a week later is Easter. haven't even made one Easter tag this year yet.  And then it's time to change the side bar.  All within a week.   Weird.  Plus, we're expecting tons of rain tomorrow which should make navigating lovely.

Even more strange is that today was 70 degrees; lovely but eerie with a foot of snow still laying around and melting in various stages leaving huge ice patches.

I met Megan for lunch today.  We got salads and decided to eat in a park.  It's actually a plaza or square which means it's all concrete.  70 degrees and concrete covered totally with ice and ruts.  Megan was flipping along in 3 in. stilletto's while Mom was hanging on to every marble planter with my boots with a huge tread on them trying not to hit the ground.  I'm still cracking up at the sight I was presenting.  I'm in awe at how that child walks in those spiked heels, let alone on ice.

The child is going to South Beach on spring break next week....blah.  Her ATM card expired.  Her new one hadn't arrived so we were at the bank ordering a new one.  She leaves next Thurs.  Son of a gun if the darned card wasn't mixed in with my bills.  I opened it a month ago, was going to give it to her, and totally forgot about it; I mean TOTALLY never remembered it was here.  They deactivated it today when the new one was ordered so now she's spitting nails waiting for the new one and hoping it gets here by next week.

I still haven't gotten my taxes done.  I have everything together for my BF but hate to begin to think about them because one of these years I am going to owe.  Plus in Pa., we pay wage tax to our townships, boro's, cities, etc.  Mine is 1% of my income and not deducted from my income so I'm hoping to at least get close to enough to pay the wage tax.  Oy....I have to bite the bullet very soon.

Happy Monday :)  HUGS  Chris

queeniemart said...

may i have both cute tags with Lisa?

my taxes are in my mortgage..thank God or they'd never get paid on time. I hope you get a decent refund back.....GW Bush is also sending you a rebate check this year too.
Aren't these young ladies a riot how they can walk and keep it all together and you know me, i'd end up falling right on my fat butt.
I hope she gets that ATM card. I have a friend who loses hers about every 2 wks.
it is flooding here...has been raining for 24 hrs.
i love you

chaoticbeauty34 said...

Love the new tags. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, and I look forward to seeing the Easter tags.

Best Wishes

Kevin's company doesn't take that 1% local wage tax out either.  I hate that we have to pay all that in come April!  I love your tag.  I'm snagging!  I could never walk in high heel shoes like ever again. LOL

Have a great day, try not to get wet.  We're supposed to have all that rain also today, but at least we have no melting snow!

cherry2sweet2eat said...

Yea its easy to walk with heels on any turf for me lol.

jmoqueen said...

Glad you had a good lunch with Megan.  What a nightmare about the bank card!!


firestormkids04 said...

Snagged the rainy one at top.  Your work is lovely. You reminded me of St Pat's and Easter,  however the thought of Ashley's birthday on the 10th, Andrea's the 11th and moving between 11th and 17th - I think I may be depressed.  I'll be tasting snow this weekend.  They have to shovel it before I can get to the door.  Here in SoCal, it's 70.  Kudos to you for maintaining in the frozen wonderland.  Blessings, Penny

carolsixpac said...

Just stopping by to say good morning and hope your having a good week-hugs!

princesssaurora said...

springangel235 said...

So nice you and Megan had lunch in the park, it sounded like the perfect weather too.   Yes, back to back St. Patty's Day and much going on.  Hope you can get the taxes done soon.  It was a good feeling for us to get ours done.  Have a beautiful end to your week....hugs and love you.
