The Throes of Tax Season

I am back....finally.  This tax season, my three kiddos, and pregnancy has me wiped out!  I have been working some long hours, spending little time with the kids, and not getting enough sleep (according to my weary eyes and low energy levels each day).  I love being a CPA and doing tax work.  I especially enjoy doing large corporations & state tax work, however, I hate the hours and stress that come with the deadline driven profession.  This is partly why I chose to become a Team Beachbody coach.  I want to be able to stay part time and still have enough money to raise my (soon to be) four kids and *gulp* be able to help put them all through college should they choose to do so.  The main reason I became a coach is because I love the products & it motivates me to continue to try to be in the best shape of my life and therefore lead by example for my children.  I also like to think that I am helping the world become a healthier place...one person at a time.

I have one more week left until the first of two spring deadlines is over.  The March 15th deadline encompasses the business entities of corporate form, and the April 15th deadline encompasses the pass-through entity & Individual returns.  Since my run isn't heavy in the area of 1040's, once I make it safely through to March 15th it should be smooth sailing at only 50 hour workweeks til April 15th.  My typical weeks leading up to March 15th run around 60 to 65 hours a week.  Not fun!

I just have to take it one day at a time and one week at a time.  On the plus side, once I hit March 15th, there will only be 2 weeks left till we find out the gender of the baby!
