I Should be Drinking Green Beer, Instead of Doing Taxes

What a crappy way to spend St Patrick's Day for me. Working on my taxes instead of drinking green beer

To make it worse, I am burning vacation days this week (still working.....) to do taxes and some other home items Not the best way to use vacation either.

I am done working on taxes for today, so time to treat myself to a little St Patrick's Day celebration

You are going to love retirement. You still have to do taxes, but if you want to, you can do them in a relaxed and leisurely way. As one of our members so aptly described it.... in retirement, we really do have oceans of time.

Good thing you worked on your taxes before treating yourself to come green beer...Probably not a good idea to do taxes after.

Good point, taxes are enough work to make sure no mistreaks mistakes, without additional influence!

I just stuck to my local microbrew, so nothing green colored last night. My neighbor actually owns and runs this brewery:
Welcome to Rio Grande & Sierra Blanca Brewing Company!

I have an old frig converted to a kegerator, with two taps. Right now I have the IPA and the Desert Pilsner on tap. I use the 5 gallon Cornelius kegs, aka soda kegs. Nothing beats having a good cold beer on draft.

Today is back to taxes and the fun of TurboTax.
