…and I’m so happy, I’m going to give away yarn.

I’m officially done with tax season!  I filed Dobby’s return this morning – yeah I know I said I’d send it out but I decided to be nice and save her the $$ the CPA would have charged…I have yet to hear a thank you, btw.  Next year she can pay the CPA and scream at HIM – so I’m DONE.

This has gotten me into one of the best moods I’ve been in for a while…well, since January anyway…which has made me want to share the joy.  Leave a comment on this post before Midnight tomorrow night and you’ll be entered into a drawing for either a skein of sock yarn OR a hank o’ roving, your choice.  In fact, tell your friends and have them mention you sent them in their comment and you’ll get another entry for each person who mentions you.  I seriously want to break records with this one!  ;o))  How about this, if we get more than 50 comments, EVERYONE will get a second chance and dangit I might just give away a second prize!  (yep, I’m in that good of a mood!)  Good luck to everyone!

I’m throwing in a picture of the daffodils blooming outside my office window to help cheer it up around here a bit:

Daffodils outside my window...

ETA:  New goal!  If we make it to 200 comments?  I’m giving away handspun.  ;o)  Yes, that’s on top of everything else I promised up there ^ so that makes three prizes up for grabs (and can I say?  Holy crap I think my database is going to go all splodey!  Good thing I’m a bookkeeper so I can keep track of all these extra entries!)  ;o))

ETAA:  Comments are now closed – THANK YOU all for playing!!  Winners will be posted on Monday, April 20th.

    what?! you’re actually done? I bet you’ve got a date with Emma…. thank goodness I decided to read *Tina’s* blog today…what a good friend…

  4. Congrats on being done! I filed mine today, even though they have been done for weeks. I just didn’t want to pay any earlier. Hopefully, Uncle Sam will be kinder next year.

  5. Mary Ann says:

    Congratulations on being done! Your post and the photo of the flowers made me smile and smile.

  6. Anne says:

    Let’s hear it for the end of tax season! For at least the next few weeks! I hope you didn’t have anyone filing an extension… ;)

  7. Hooray for the end of tax season. You survived another year! (I work in a building full of CPA’s and it was like a tomb today…I think everyone took the day off)

  8. I love feeling the joy! I’m almost inspired to post something today, just to help give you a boost… now, that’s putting me in a good mood.

  9. Niece says:

    The joy is so incomparable! Even CYNTHIA agreed that the headache of take season should be celebrated with some gorgeous yarn/roving!

  10. Diane S. says:

    Yeah you are all done! Thank goodness you don’t have to deal with that for another year. Love your daffys just about all of mine are in bloom to.
    Hope to see you sooon,

  11. Woo Hoo! We electronically filed the 3rd but paid local property, per capita and wage taxes today — PA is the land of taxes. May not have the highest but the governor never saw a tax he didn’t embrace. Congrats on yours done! “Burrobird” sent me over!!!

    Nancy’s last blog post..Finally, on Easter,

  12. Carolyn says:

    Hooray! I’ll be feeling the same way in about a month when my school semester is done. Enjoy!

    And I hope I see you at Clermont next weekend, too!

  13. Dude, I’m so happy for you!! I had to file mine the second I got my W2s in order to have it done before I left for Argentina, and my accountant was swamped THEN. I can only imagine what this time of year does to y’all! Thanks for stepping up to the plate for all of us.

    Robin Marie’s last blog post..I owe you…..

  14. Wahoo! I think this year is a new record for me–I was done WEEKS before Tax Day. As in, two. ;) And I’m always up for a chance at free yarn!!

    (Also, Tina has such lovely things to say about you. I hope we get to meet in person one of these days!) :D

    Spring is the perfect time to feel lighter than air! Love the daffies and congratulations on being Done! Zeeneedle sent me here to celebrate.

  16. Lindy in Australia says:

    Wow, I’m no.44. Nearly there. (I was sent here by Margene). Well done on the tax job. We’re now 10 months late with ours! Hate taxes!

  17. Rebecca says:

    Happy to help a fellow knitter get posts and possibly win something. About the taxes and Dobby. . . sad, but so often true: “No good deed goes unpunished.” But your happy face is best for your own zen.

  18. Ruthcrafts says:

    Well done you! I’m so glad I don’t have to do this (living in uk as student :) NB: was sent in your direction by Zeneedle.

  19. Brenda says:

    Came here from Margene’s and am adding my name. Thanks for the shot of spring to come (my daffodils haven’t flowered yet).

  20. JudithNYC says:

    Margene sent me and whatever Margene wants me to do, I do it. ;) Now I’m off to poke around your site. Glad I found you.

  21. Congrats with the taxes. I filed my own this year to avoid paying my tax accountant and used the refund to pay off my credit card. Wahoo!

  22. marianne says:

    Came over via Margene, looks like you made your goal!
    Congrats on having finished up with your taxes, always a relief.

  23. nestra says:

    Hooray for you! For both getting it done and being patient enough to deal with someone else’s tax craziness.

    (I read about you in Zeneedle’s blog)

  24. Jen says:

    Congratulations on finishing the taxes…I have yet to start.

    (I was sent by Zeneedle)

    ps. I envy your daffodils. We just got the first crocuses this weekend.

  25. kate says:

    Beautiful daffodils! We can only just see the first ones emerging from the earth here…sigh. Congratulations on surviving another tax season!

  26. I’ve been by your Etsy store before, looking at those adorable bags, but I’m a new visitor to your blog courtesy of Margene.
    Ahhh, spring flowers are my favorites. They truly lift the spirit.

  27. Kat says:

    Love the daffodils. Our tulips are just starting to bloom and soon we should have a profusion! Thankfully DH does the taxes so I did not need to worry about that.

    Margene sent me over here.

  28. Tramp! :)

    Yee-haw for taxes being done, for flowers blooming, and for the beautiful sunshiny day we are having today. Had to do my part for the record breaking day :)

  29. Susanne says:

    Gorgeous daffodils. Amazing how such a wee flower can put us in the sunshine mood!!
    Margene mentioned you on her blog…came here via her Zen!

  30. Debra Fox says:

    I love it when the taxes are completed. We actually filed ours on the 13th of April this year – one day earlier than last year and better than the many years we filed for an extension. Thanks for sharing the joy. And Margene sent me.


  31. You should have seen my happy dance yesterday afternoon outside the post orifice after ours were mailed. Stopped just in time to dodge the TV cameras focusing on everyone else’s misery….

    Congrats on the taxes! I love the feeling of having them finished, one way or the other you know where you stand. Beautiful daffodils too! I’m another commenter sent over by Margene.

  33. linda-kay says:

    Thanks for sharing your good mood. I’m visiting from Margene’s site. The daffodils are beautiful, mine haven’t started blooming yet.

  34. HB says:

    Wandered over from Stumbling Over Chaos – I can never see too many daffodil photos & would love the sock yarn!

  35. Brenda says:

    Nice to see daffodils. Too early for us in Alberta Canada, but yours give us hope. Margene sent me. I hope I’m not too late.

  36. Elizabeth L in Apex, NC says:

    Congratulations! (And ain’t it a grand feeling?!) Thanks for the fun contest and the pretty flowers – and an extra chance for Margene, please.

  37. Nephele says:

    I love the bright yellow of the daffodils. Hmm I have some Malabrigo that’s just that color – I may have to felt some flowers.

  38. travelita says:

    Enjoyed perusing your Rav projects. Elfine’s, Bellatrix and Jaywalker were fab, and I liked your Spring Forward and Thuja Socks also. Made it through a couple more repeats on my first pair of Monkey Socks.

    Mr. Good Luck has great taste in buttons. Too bad Bayerische didn’t work out. Mmmm, LL Clapotis!

  39. don’t need no stinkin spreadsheet, there’s a database underlying this here blog thing. with one query you (or i) can get all the commenters on a specific post and then put that directly into a spreadsheet. no wasted time creating one manually.

    oh yeah, Cookie sent me ;)

    Margene sent me over. I’ve never won a blog entry, but I hope my luck changes with this give away!!


  41. Hey there! Cookie from Shut Up and Knit sent me on over in this direction. Congrats on finishing your taxes! It’s a wonderful feeling.

  42. I came over here via Chris at Stumbling Over Chaos to share the comment love!

    We did our taxes over a month ago. I hate doing them, but I really appreciate my husband’s insistence on doing them as early as we can after getting all of the paperwork.

  43. Wendy says:

    Beautiful daffodils. I am extremely happy for you that tax season is over. Step back, take a breath and relax. Relish in the fact that you were strong enough to make it through another tax season. Enjoy the beautiful weather! See you soon.

  44. Gretch says:

    Woo-hoo. I got my check back from Uncle Sam today. Hot time in the ol’ town tonight! The only thing better would be to win me some yarn!

  45. Elizabeth says:

    The only thing better than finishing taxes is getting a refund, and I am this year! So celebrations all around.

    btw, sent by the Harlot

  46. Renee says:

    Your daffodils are lovely. They well reflect your sunny mood. I’m glad SOMEONE is happy! Zeeneedle mentioned you were going for “gold”. I’m happy to accommodate.
