greek easter

1. I think there might actually be more sweets than vegetables in our apartment at the moment, which, contrary to popular belief, is pretty rare. Not pictured: a tupperware full of orange syrup-soaked semolina cake, two extra large milk chocolate Easter bunnies, and a whole bag filled with Easter candy.

2. Greek Easter: keeping dentists in business since 33 AD.

3. In school-related news, I have been EXHAUSTED. I don’t know how sitting all day in one room and learning about chest pain for 7 hours straight is more tiring than running around lab actuallyย doing things, but it is.

4. How pumped is everyone for it being TAX DAY TODAY!?!

5. I’m crying. Just, crying.

6. We really submitted our taxes just under the wire this year (like, the.boy is mailing our checks TODAY) and it was not fun. It was partially my fault for being a little lazy about getting my act together and partially our accountant’s form for filling something out wrong initially, so then he had to fix it and resend us everything.

7. I can’t even tell you how many tequila shots I didย in the process of all of this, but let’s just say we are way past single digits.

8. Next year is going to be different. You heard it here first.

9. MAD MEN. Megan’s mom = UGH. New girl = not sure about her. Peggy = weird story line? Roger = the usual.

10. And there was no Blacklist OR Scandal last week. I have no idea what I’m supposed to do with my free time.

  1. Oh no, tax day… I hate it too. Searching like a crazy for all the papers, not being able to find important ones. But hey, now youยดre done and you should celebrate it!

  2. No such thing as too many sweets in one apartment:-) Sounds perfect to me!

  3. Marina says:

    LOVE Mad Men! Except Megan. Yuck.

    What are you in school for? Sounds like soo much fun haha. Yay for Tax Day!

  4. I actually kind of like tax day. My dad is an accountant, so this is the first day he’ll leave at 5 pm since February. And he’ll finally have a weekend off! I always file my taxes (welll, he files for me) ASAP so I can get my refund, but I know I’d put it off if I owed anything.

    I was in such sugar overload after Easter, and it wasn’t even from my own family, my friends just brought back all the candy from their homes and I had to eat one of everything of course.
    And ahhh school! I get that sentiment hah, I feel like the days I go on a run I feel so much more awake compared to the days I just sit at my desk and study!

  6. ick taxes-sorry girly ๐Ÿ™

    but yayyy Greek Easter!!! delish!

  7. Stefanie says:

    Yeah I don’t like Don’s new girl. Something weird is going on with that relationship.

  8. haha, dude, EVERY holiday keeps the dentists in business!! ๐Ÿ˜› and oh my gawd, tax day. . death and taxes. . the only two things guaranteed in this life. . what movie was that?! and that’s pretty much how I feel when doing them ๐Ÿ˜›

    Forever grateful for the husband who does our taxes. I learned to stay away from his office, only approaching the area if he calls me. His secretaries are also fast learners… ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. So with you on that last point. Not having a Scandal on my DVR on Friday basically sent me down a deep hole of despair. Yes, maybe I need a hobby, but I still love that show so much. It’s back this week though right??? (Please say yes)

  11. mira says:

    These Easter goodies look familiar ๐Ÿ™‚ and yeah, tax day… Love Mad Men!

  12. Sorry, no time to comment…gotta go crunch tax numbers ๐Ÿ™

  13. Heather says:

    We actually got our taxes done on time and didn’t even owe money! Seriously, though, I hate doing taxes. You also have my sympathy having to sit for 7 hours listening to lectures. I’ve been known to doze off during long meetings, so there’s no way I’d manage to stay awake for something that long.

  14. Taxes are the worst. Can we talk about how I basically made no money and yet had to pay the government????!!!! Ummm, seriously???

  15. Wait – there is such a thing as “too many sweets”?
    I am so hoping that orange syrup-soaked semolina cake is something you made? Maybe even thinking of posting it?

  16. P says:

    I’m glad I did my taxes early this year (but honestly I’m more excited for the refund, haha).

    At least with school, you are pretty much done?? Just two more years right? And then you are a full-fledged MD/PhD!!!

  17. Tina says:

    Taxes, blah! We had to pay, super blah on that one.
    Pour me a tequila, please ??
    Mad men! I can’t wait, but we have no TV feed so …. I live vicariously though others until Netflix comes through.

    Greek food is da’ Bomb! I love when the Greek Orthodox Church in Tallahassee has the food festival! Bring me souvlaki, galatoboureko and baklava….mmmmm

  18. So right about Greek Easter! I enjoyed it soooo much though! I hope your in-laws made some vegetarian food for you! I cannot give up lamb! Sooooo good!

    I don’t have as many tax problems as you for now, but in the future, I am sure I will. Wah Wah!

  19. Sues says:

    Mmm Greek Easter looks awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

    Boo to tax day… We got ours done last month, but since we both freelance, tax season is never fun!

  20. I reckon you could use up the free time eating your candy ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. I’m fearful of my capacity to manage taxes after moving countries last year and forgetting to pay my Australian tax in the process (I submitted the return but then forgot to follow up when they told me what I owed!). The trauma of being told off by the Australian tax office has me wanting to do everything early, but I know I won’t.

    On more positive matters, that is a good stash of candy!

  22. I’m liking this season of Mad Men more than the end of last season, and only because it feels like Peggy and Joan are really realizing what a raw deal the women in the office are getting. Of course it’s the 60s so they probably won’t do anything about it.

    And that final scene where Don walked into the empty apartment was so full of symbolism I could hardly stand it. I felt like I should definitely be writing a paper on the show!

  23. Kate says:

    My guess is anyone who owes money waits till the due date for taxes. It’s those people getting back that file early.

  24. Kelly says:

    Boo to taxes ๐Ÿ™ Yay to all those yummy Easter treats though!
