An orderly red binder

I filed my tax return this morning. Yay!

The trickiest part was figuring out how to record the loans on my apartments, because loans taken in order to buy housing are treated differently - some people get some of the interest refunded by the government as a form of support for people buying a place to live.

After calculating and thinking and finally calling the tax man's call center, I figured it all out. Then of course after filing their calculator told me that I am not entitled to the support anyway because I have paid off too much of my debt already. That's a couple of hours of my life I'll never get back...

But the biggest achievment of the weekend actually wasn't my tax return. It was the sorting and filing away of over 2 years of paperwork that I had been keeping in a big chaotic pile. The pile is now gone and has been replaced by an orderly red binder (actually two).

I feel so grown up right now.
