I'm grateful for having somehow found some equanimity to prepare the federal income tax records without getting upset. It took me most of the day and the evening, and it's work I have really detested in the past.
But this year, in 2009, I did it (with Sarah's help) without ruffling a feather.
I think two things contributed to this change:
1. A president I don't find so difficult to think about.
2. This gratitude blog.
