Weeding out the Slackers

I escaped from work before six yesterday, and my mom and I got a big load of mulch and compost plus two plants at Breed hardware, and spent the evening weeding, planting, and spreading mulch. So my front garden looks better, and I hope the mulch will keep the weeds from sprouting up again so quickly.

Even after spending all day Sunday on tax-related stuff, I’m still not sure if I can claim my previous credit or not, so I ended up filing an extension. I thought I’d be able to use my AMT and investment credits, but I couldn’t get it to work out that way, so I guess I need to leave it to the experts.

I got lots of good exercise yesterday from pulling weeds, and hauling sacks of mulch, but I’m planning to ride on my exercise bike for a while this evening. I think that getting more exercise on a consistent basis, and not feeling as if I’m sliding into sloth could make me feel more optimistic about life in general. Now that I have proclaimed my intention to exercise tonight, it will be more difficult to wriggle out of my obligation to myself.
