I work as the Business Manager in Health Care at a Retirement Centre in Ontario. I really enjoy the residents and my job. I find their stories to be enlightening.
My son died at age 11 devastating our family. I never understood why he had to die and it broke my heart. My sister lost her battle to cancer and my husband died suddenly from a heart attack. Six months following Jon's death my best friend died from cancer. She was the one who was there for me through everything.
This site helps me express some of the feelings I had during those painful experiences and realize life is good.


Life of Taxes

Blog Posted:5/7/2014 7:39:00 AM

Well, I finally went to the bank and paid my income tax this week. 

Canada Revenue allowed us two more weeks than the US to pay the taxes because we live in Canada but I believe they wanted to wait until it warmed up a bit before they took the shirt right off my back.

    You only lose your shirt, I must get your accountant's name because I usually walk away in a barrel! LOL
