It's Monday

 There’s a meme or prompt or whatever they call it on the WordPress blogs I read that is called “The Monday Peeve”. I’m not sure why Monday should be reserved for peeves since I am peeved about something or other every single day of the week but today I actually have a list – 

1. Why do linen manufacturers think everyone on the planet has super gigantic mattresses? My mattress is only 11 inches deep. Sheets are now made with deep pockets to fit mattresses up to 16 inches – 16! Guess what – they don’t fit my mattress. A king size mattress is 76 inches wide and 80 inches long. These damn deep pocket sheets don’t fit neatly on my mattress no matter how you put them on – I can put the long way wide, or the wide way long and it still is a disaster, there is still too much fabric every which way. And the top sheet? Holy carp – they are so long that almost half of the length has to be tucked under the mattress. What a mess. I like my sheets tight and smooth – never gonna happen unless I buy a gigantic mattress – which is not happening any time soon. 

2. It is a grey and dreary day, cold for around here and we are expecting a wintery mix starting late this afternoon. Not nice, not nice at all. 

3. Frankie passed away Jan 14th. The vet made the arrangements for her body to be cremated and her ashes to be mailed to me (we live too far away from the pet services place for a cab ride to be affordable.) I paid the vet for the service and he said I should hear from them in about 5 or 6 days. I called the pet services company this morning to find out the status of Frankie’s remains and was disconnected and then I re-dialed and got voicemail. I left a message. I want an answer and Frankie’s ashes.

4. I’m confused as all hell about getting our taxes done this year. My H&R Block advisor sent me an email stating I could upload all of our documents to my account on their website and she would do our taxes but we would still have to go into the office to review and sign them OR we could drop the documents off at the office, and we would still have to go in to sign them. 

I’m not terribly happy about uploading our documents – the H&R Block site, while supposedly secure and encrypted and all that la-di-dah would be a hackers dream to access. Once I get all the forms in (W-2’s blah blah bah) I guess I’ll just email Jordana and ask her advice. *sigh* Paranoia is a terrible thing.
