I’ve been working out more and my body is telling me how far I have to go still! I’ve become very aware that I can only increase one type of exercise at a time. I’m addressing inactivity and recovery from two foot surgeries over a 20 month timeframe. It won’t be quick so it has to be steady and incremental. Been there and done that before, Right now it is Pilates and serious stretching. Walking a lot will have to wait a bit.
Today I started with 30 minutes of barre exercises, cleaned out one side of the pantry and reorganizing it a bit, did two loads of laundry, changed the bed and pruned a very overgrown spreading plant on our little patio. I’m tired but managed to make the coleslaw for dinner and am now going to start the rice. Hubby will cook the chicken.
We also sat in front of the computer together and did our federal and state taxes on TurboTax which took quite a while as Hubby hasn’t been paying as much attention to finances and past tax returns as I have. So I had him do the entry and answered his questions as we went.
Good news is we got refunds on both tax returns and applied them to our estimated taxes for this year. Bad news is e-file didn’t work as last year’s federal return is still in their pile of undone work. So tomorrow I get to solve that problem probably by mailing in the returns so the federal one can add to the pile of unprocessed returns. Sigh.
If you have a partner is one of you more conversant with your financial details than the other? How do you try to keep the less involved partner up to date?
