Three days season is almost over. For people outside the profession, they think that this is the home stretch, that since there is a light at the end of the tunnel, that this is the easy part. It's not. The last week is the worst.

I think we figured out that this is our tenth tax season. 10 years of the madness. Of the exhaustion. Of the life put on hold for a few months. It doesn't get any easier, no matter how many years you have been through it. It still sucks.

Tom is done. He's given all he can give, and didn't even get up early this morning. There's just no motivation left this year. He's worked harder this year than any other before, and he's not even done on the 15th. As an auditor, he is busier during tax season, but he's also not limited to just this time of the year. He's hardly done any tax work this year at all. He's already scheduled clear through June with jobs. The end isn't the end this year.

He's exhausted. I'm exhausted. The kids want their Daddy back. He is supposed to get two days off after the 15th this week. I hope he takes them. He needs a break. We all do.
