27 days left - and I'm ready to explode!!!

This will be my first tax season ever that I don't gain weight!! Actually - since Jan 1 I've lost a little over 20 lbs - and I have 3 more to go to get back to where I stopped last summer.....

I don't want to blow this!!! But the stress is killing me!!!

Hey! I'm a tax practitioner, and I feel you! It's really hard with all the stress. :stress: All I can say is, plan plan plan! Make sure you get your foods lined up, and make sure you get your exercise in.

And if you can't manage that, maybe you need to rethink how you're working! Just because your clients are in a rush, doesn't mean you have to be. I know, that's hard sometimes, but I've found it's true.

I recently attended a tax workshop for CPEs, and I was the slimmest person there, except for one other woman... I knew that tax season took a toll, but wow.

I am an accounting student, so is that what I have to look forward to? LOL! I work and go to school full-time, so I am always under a time crunch. I am going to get my CPA, but do NOT want to do taxes! I am going to take some extra courses to be a Forensic Accountant! Probably the same amount of stress, but much more interesting! If I can plan everything else in my life, I can plan my food too! We can all do this!!
