Done for the day

The second to last day of class was today.  Thursday we go live on the phones so if you've got a TurboTax question, call tomorrow.  

Actually, I feel pretty well trained and supported.  It is so much simpler than my last gig of Peloton.  I figured out that I've filed taxes for 50 years now and have some experience that helps.  They give us the product only (I'm having trouble downloading the TurboTax) until we have enough calls and a high enough quality rating then we start getting more complex calls (I'm having trouble filing my state form).  The line between product and actual tax advice is, so far, a little vague to me but I suspect it will become more apparent when we go live.

I've enjoyed the training.  It has been interesting and the instructors are excellent and soooooo patient.  I can not imagine being so patient.  

It will be strange to answer phones again but nice to get some money for it.  

Sleeping dog

Zoe is going to sleep well tonight as will I.  Typically we walk a standard mile and a half, all off leash so she can run back and forth and find the facilities where she wants.  It is a nice loop that we've been walking for two and a half years with a new hip and then a new knee.  But it requires us to get in the car and drive to the trail head and I hate that.

Well today I decided to stretch all of our six legs.  We skipped the car and walked to the trail.  It is a pretty big downhill followed, of course, by a pretty big uphill.  Google says it was 3.1 miles.  Most of it on concrete as my arthritic foot can attest.  But my Hoka shoes held up.  Walking on sponge all the way makes a huge difference.

Time for the Tylenols.  Zoe is already crashed on the cool floor.
