The real reason I hate getting ready to have someone else do my taxes is the weather. While most people may be snowed in today, we are not. Spring is gorgeous in Florida and it is my favorite time of year. The sun is shining and the weather is amazing, somewhere between 65-75 degrees. It is our growing season. We have fresh tomatoes, strawberries and citrus. Most of the produce that I purchase right now is locally grown. By the end of May it will be too hot and our tomatoes and strawberries will be imported from the North.
I have a radical idea about spring in Florida. We should have spring off rather than summer when it is too hot to go outside. Then students might relish the icy indoors that summer brings to Florida. In order to get to the point of today which is to get organized to do my taxes, I won't even think about the weather. I will try not to look outside while I gather the paperwork to get my taxes done. There is not a moment more to waste.
