Iâ€™ve just finished plugging all my 2006 expenses and income into a spreadsheet, so Iâ€™m all set to have my taxes done. I may even get money back. Of course, since Revenue Quebec sent me yet another revision last week (this one for 2003) thereâ€™s no guarantee that if I end up with an amount due to me, they wonâ€™t tell me to give it back to them at a future date.
I would feel a lot better about it all if I hadnâ€™t just opened the latest Hydro bill and seen that theyâ€™re asking me to pay over seven hundred dollars for our November/December consumption. And January/February will be worse, of course. (We are no longer on the equalised payment plan thanks to me missing a payment last fall, and being late on the next one. Thank you so very much for being understanding, Hydro.)
That’s all right: I have been told there will be ice cream on the way to pick Liam up this afternoon. The first soft-serve of the season makes everything better.
