My Super Bowl Boycott...

At least that's what I planned on discussing. This is the first time I have intentionally missed the Super Bowl. When the league decided not to take any type of stand about the players disrespecting the country they play in then I won't watch. It's my protest. You may not agree and that's fine.

Anyway that was my intent. I would rather use this as a lesson about being organized when it come's to personal things. I've never kept files or records, anything. My ex-wife did all of it, but let's just say I haven't learned anything.
For the last several days I have tried to file my tax return. Unfortunately I don't remember the password for my sign in so I couldn't sign in. Today I used another email and everything was fine until I had to provide the AGI from last year. It's the adjusted gross income from your previous tax return.
Of course I didn't have that either. Now I took a guess at the five digit pin. We'll see if it's right. If not I'm going to have to find another way. It goes to show you that no matter what progress you've made in other areas you can always improve in others. Even one's you don't think about much.

The lesson here is to keep files either in a cabinet or on your computer. If you don't something this simple can become a giant headache.Trust me I've learned my lesson, and I'm still not watching the game.
