Ya'll take some well-deserved rest time before you start chasing the people on extensions.

I get a day off?? Really? Cool.

I think I'll start it off by getting up at 6:30 to get my son off to school. Before he's out the door, I'll have a client stop by the house to pick up the hard copies of his returns which were e-mailed to him yesterday. Then I'll deposit the checks from everyone that finally picked up their returns yesterday. (OK - so that one is kind of fun, except for ...) Then I'll pay the bills that I haven't looked at for the last two weeks. Then my wife wants me to put the boxes of Easter decorations away in the garage, which involves moving enough stuff around so that I can get to the overhead storage access. While I'm in the garage, I might as well get some laundry going. Back in the house, the fish tank needs water and the cat's litter box needs attention. My wife also wants me to help sweep and mop the floors all over the house, and I usually give her a hand changing the sheets on the beds (her short arms just can't reach to get our son's bed together). After my son gets home from school, we've planned a family outing to see a movie and get some dinner. This evening is rehearsal night for the church band I play with (which I've skipped out on for the last 2 or 3 weeks), then it's wrestle with the kid to get him into bed at a decent time before settling in for a good night's sleep myself.

Yep. I'm really going to enjoy my time off. :-)
