Survival – the state or fact of continuing to live or exist, typically in spite of an accident, ordeal, or difficult circumstances.

That’s pretty much what this weekend was about. I made it through. I have to admit I’m still a little punch drunk from the beating the IRS gave me but I’m pulling it together. I think I want to move to a country where I actually get something for the excessive taxes I pay. I’d enjoy things like healthcare or college tuition or unemployment. Silly stuff like that. Stuff that the rest of the “developed” world takes for granted. Sigh.
