Unlike in previous years, we’re not opening our pool this week. So we have had the “fun” of finalizing our taxes without being able to look out over the pool and thing of the glorious days of summer that will soon be here. We don’t actually swim this early in the year. We just enjoy the view. And, in fact, it has often snowed during the first week we’ve had or pool opened. Still, it was a welcome sight to balance the chore of doing our taxes. And, unfortunately, this year’s taxes have been monumental.
