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.

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!

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!

Oh, modem, where route thou?

This spot on my desk - this valuable real estate, considering my penchant for stuff - is finally empty.  For the past year and a half, it's been home to the cable modem and VOIP box for my phone and internet, much to my chagrin.  When I first moved my office home, Tom & Al did a great job of arranging the desks into a workable work station and hooked up my computer and all the peripherals.  A couple of days later, the cable phone guy came and messed it all up - leaving both big boxes on the desk and a mass of cable everywhere.  Well, today my client Dean (who just became the father of triplets, by the way) came to my rescue, tidied up the wire mess and installed my wireless modem so I could put my netbook to use.
Now everything is under the desk, on a wire shelf over the UPS, out of the way but close enough for me to reach if I have to reset anything.  I am beyond thrilled - you can see it doesn't take much to make me happy!  Of course, now I have to dust the desk and tidy my workspace up - but I am so pleased with the results.  Thank you, Dean, for getting rid of the cable eyesore that greeted clients when they sat down in front of my desk.  I really appreciate your help!

  1. Looks great!!! I hate all those wires and cables. Last year I smothered my computer because I just covered it all up with fabric. Everything. It died. I am trying not to murder my new one. But it IS ugly!
