Never as bad as I think

I do whine a lot.  Back in the olden days I had a commanding officer who said it was OK to whine as long as you admitted it is what you were doing.  So I'd walk up to him sitting in his bridge chair and say "request permission to whine, sir" and he'd light a cigarette (yup) and I'd start into whatever it was I wanted to complain about.  He'd just chuckle and say.  "Ya' done?" and we'd move on.  He was a good guy and I was lucky to have him as a CO (the asshole XO made up for him).

After all the complaining about having to redo stuff it looks like it won't be too bad.  We spent much of the morning teaching people (24 in our 'wave') how to create a folder and save a bookmark.  My eyes glazed over on that pretty quickly and I played at other things.  But at the end when they said that class we dismissed to work on the modules I'd completed already, I got a pass and was cut loose.  So, I don't have to re watch the video that compares the versions of TurboTax to flavors of yogurt.  Really.  And that is supposed to help?

I worked a bit on the last few I have to complete so I can stay ahead without having to push it.  And then worked on our taxes which is more interesting now I see both sides.  We can't file until we get the last of the investment info in a couple of weeks but I'll have it all done by them.  Of course, we will not have last year's done yet since the IRS is still processing them.  But I suspect we'll have 2020 done before 2019.
