Bookkeeper, tax preparer, cat lady, blogger, organizer, mystery writer.

Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

Peter the Cat...

Peter the Cat...
This is Peter the gingersnap tabby! He's seven years old and has just been promoted to Peter the Very, Very Good. He is working his way up to Peter the Great...

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

And Jasper makes three!
Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

Easier to keep up than catch up...

Well, I've had a pretty productive day.  Not many clients, but I did get a lot done.  I have all but one of my bookkeeping clients' 2009 stuff all ready to do their annual corporate tax returns.  I am pretty pleased with myself on that account, if I do say so myself.  Last year I was struggling to get everything done by March 15th for corporate returns!  I tried to delegate and it didn't go well, so I am back to doing everything myself.  At my old job, some of the ladies used to get mad at me when I ignored their complaints about their workload and told them, "It's easier to keep up than catch up."  But truer words were never spoken; the thing that got me was that four or five ladies in the records department sent their data entry work to one person, who had no trouble keeping up with that workload at all.  So I've gone back to taking my own advice - I'm keeping up instead of struggling to catch up!
