Happy April 15th. \:D

Hope all you U.S. citizens got your taxes in on time. Mine went in the mail (and the check ) today.

For me the real pain came last night, trying to get all the right paperwork together. Then I read some estimate of the time to do things, "52 minutes" for filling out forms or something ridiculous like that.

At least this time I didn't bite anyone's head off just because it was tax time. I'm becoming almost human these days. \:\)

I know what you mean about "almost human." Tax time was frustrating for me because it was always a time of, measuring, for me. It always reminded me of how poorly I was doing, how I didn't measure up to the rest of the world. Kinda like my birthdays know, "another year and still in this shit."

Ranata said that she has noticed some change in me, that I have settled down some. Geez, do you think so?

Donald, the therapist, talks of serenity. What the hell is that? I wouldn’t have believed him except for the night that I joined his group. There was this guy there who was leaving on a long vacation and he said that he would only be stopping in once or twice to say good by when he got back; he was “graduating,” he said. This guy actually looked relaxed…ya, maybe even, serene.

I gotta get me some of that.

So, maybe tax time for me in the next couple of years will be less and less stressful. Congrats to you for gaining some peace in your life.
