Celebrating a Year

Well, I was going to move my photos away from Rio today, but I just downloaded this last one from my beloved barrio of Urca. Bad news from the IRS arrives by mail, as I finally get to the 3 weeks worth waiting for me. They need documentation for 3 years of deductions– the amount of paperwork looming to justify my costs is depressing, although it looks like they are wrong in every challenge. But the IRS is practically a sovereign nation, so you don’t mess with their summons. I am up late locating corroborating documents, but finally can sleep with a sense of relief that all is as it should be, and it is just the pointless work of locating documents, copying them, and convincing those in charge that remains.

  1. Oh…so sorry for your out-of-class assignment from the IRS….given what they can do…it is…as you note…an important assignment to do in a timely way….I suspect someone at the IRS has been reading your blog…and was envious of your last trip to Rio.;-)

  3. Paperwork! Yuk … At such time I think I should take a lesson from Brother Lawrence and find the sacred in mundain and boring work. I never succeed. Hope you get through it quickly. Thank goodness you are an organized person. ;-) Be well.

    • I am trying not to let it be more than it is, although sometimes I do have to sigh deeply and walk around the block as it all seems so stupidly unnecessary.
