Yesterday I had the pleasure of cuddling with my wife for an hour and a half long nap. I thought of nothing but my wife and it was the deepest, most restful sleep I have had in ages.

Even those were completed while the CPAs finished dozens of other tax returns simultaneously. Large businesses, like hotels, were completely audited and filed in less than a week, even with the CPAs spending many, many hours drinking at the poolside. My point?
