I also still need to actually mail my federal taxes. I do Virginia on-line, since it is free. If the feds really want me to file on-line, they shouldn't charge me for the privilege. I also need to increase my deductions, as the impact of home ownership is significant.
I decided not to torture myself with a business trip next week for a meeting of marginal utility. However, I have developed an elaborate calendar color-coding system for my amusement. It involves a yearly calendar (with date boxes). I start with the holidays my company gives me off in pink. The government holidays which I don't get off are in orange. Jewish holidays which I take off for (basically, Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, and the first two days of Pesach) are in blue.
Then there's the stuff I do to myself. Vacations are in yellow. Weekends out of town which don't involve vacation time are in green. Days when I am in town but have something to do after work (or on the weekend) are in purple.
The original goal of this was to be a handy visual reminder to avoid double booking. In practice, it mostly serves to confirm the impression one of my friends has that I am the busiest person on the planet.
Please pass the white-out.
