Last Day to File Taxes - Finally!
For me, though, this day doesn't mark a deadline at all. It's more of a finish line, designating the end of my "single-parent-of-five-boys-with-a-full-time-desk-job" status.
At the stroke of midnight tonight, I get my husband back.
Tomorrow, he'll morph from a harried tax guy to a stay-at-home Dad.
Theoretically, this means that I shouldn't have to get up before the sun to rouse my boys and get them to school so said husband, who had worked late the night before, can sleep in.
And I won't be the only one loading and unloading the dishwasher three times a day (compared to my usual one load, two tops).
No more being the primary negotiator, peace-keeper, grocery shopper, laundry processor and limo driver.
But then again...
No more alone time savored after all of the boys are in bed. No more playing the music I like as loud as I like it while working from home.
No more sole ownership of the remote control.
I wonder if I can get him to file an extension, theoretically speaking.
