The next several months of my life will see many changes and transitions . . . some of them by choice, some not, and some simply by way of the calendar.

It was announced at work this week that I will be transferred from my current school to another in the district. It's not a position that's in sync with my personal career goals, so I may take a peek at other positions out there; either way, my work life will be very different.

My fiancee will be moving into my house in June (when it will truly become more of a "home"), and we'll be married in August. Sadly, we'll no longer be working at the same school site; happily, we'll be together for the rest of our lives.

And my son just turned 16, which means that we'll begin the cycles of driving lessons (once the grades improve), more social activities, and a job. God, I'm getting old.

Between friends and family, I know I'll have the support to get through everything. Here's hoping I'll have the strength.

Did my taxes. Seems I've been relying on some deductions in my lifestyle that have . . . expired (alimony, child care, and the like) in the last year or two. As a result, for the first time in quite a while, I owed Federal. I owed Federal a LOT. (Just about broke even on State, though, but got a little back.)

Next year, I'll be married, live in a two-income household, and possibly have a different job. Deductions may be even harder to find, however, and so I believe that next year will be the first year that I send my taxes out to be done.
