Take It Easy(ier)

I know it’s January, and that means the making of resolutions and the reorganizing of priorities. I follow some blogs of busy moms, and it seems to me that a major theme this new year is to not beat yourself up trying to be perfect. I think it’s good advice; after all, no one is perfect. But with the advent of Pinterest, Teachers Pay Teachers, and other sites, it’s difficult to not compare yourself and your lack of accomplishments with others. 

As I said, looking at just ordinary blogs that my friends are writing, it is tough to see the pictures of the delicious meals, involved desserts, stylish home furnishings, and crafts for their kids without feeling a bit overwhelmed. “What have I done today,” I ask myself? I fed my family, but it wasn’t nearly as tasty as that blog meal. I cleaned the house, but don’t invite Martha Stewart over. I found a few educational crafts on Pinterest that I printed out, but right now they’re sitting in a growing pile while my boys and I play trains.

Mo’s Place
21940 Kingsland Blvd.
Sunday 2 – 4 p.m. and Monday 6 – 8 p.m.

All Ages show!  Come join us for our inaugural performance and witness the start of something big!  By the time the Beatles came to the US in 1964, they had already taken Britain by storm. Their success in the States prompted a slew of other bands to try and duplicate the success they were enjoying in the UK here in the US. Each approached things a little differently, from the blues influences of the Rollings Stones to the harder edged tunes from the Kinks and the Who. In every case, the music helped define a generation. The School of Rock Katy is proud to bring this legendary music to Katy with their performance of British Invasion at Mo’s Place on January 13th and 14th. Mo’s Place has been bringing the best in live music to Katy for 25 years and School of Rock is happy to carry on that tradition. Please call 281.769.7010 for ticket info or stop by the School of Rock at 3750 S. Mason Rd., Suite 800, Katy, Texas 77450. Two performances, two opportunities to hear the Invasion all over again.

IRS Delays Tax Return Processing

Liberty Tax Service is alerting consumers of another delay to the official beginning of the 2013 filing season. The Internal Revenue Service has announced it now plans to begin processing individual income tax returns on January 30, eight days later than originally targeted. The announcement means that the vast majority of tax filers — more than 120 million households — should be able to start filing tax returns starting January 30. To further complicate the situation, refunds could be delayed to mid to late February.
