If you're old like me, you'll remember those Smith-Barney commercials where John Houseman said in a raspy voice, "They make money the old-fashioned way. They earn it." Well, I'll just have to keep earning my own money, I guess. No $365 million Powerball jackpot for me. I did manage to match two of the numbers, but that doesn't even get me $2. Oh, well.
I did get some money from Uncle Sam, though. Thanks to Turbo Tax, I did my taxes a couple weeks ago in about an hour. My refund came on Friday. Right into my account. Sweet!
I'm about 1/3 of the way through the final part of the tech writing project. There is definitely light at the end of the tunnel.
