Today is the beginning of my least favorite time of year: I begin working on my taxes. I have an upcoming appointment with my accountant to discuss my 2017 filings, and plan ahead for 2018. I will spend the day putting away Christmas decorations, gathering receipts, and preparing for tax season.

The wife has learned to avoid me while I am doing this, as planning to send large amounts of cash to the government always puts me in a foul mood, especially once I add up all of the money that I have had to pay to the government in the past year while thinking about how much of it has been wasted.
