Hello, there. It’s 9:00 pm Thursday evening and I thought I’d check in and let you know how I’m doing while working with
one hand tied behind my back the kids home from school all this week.
Well, I’m slowly chipping away at it. I’ve input all my invoices from the recent Pasadena Book Fair into BookHound, the software I use for managing my inventory. I’ve also finally prepared my 2010 tax information for my accountant. I meet with him tomorrow. What should be a simple activity always take me hours, and when my kids are home while I am sorting through 12 months of sales, cost of goods sold, and expense receipts, it takes me days. At least now I am finished.
Until next year.
I still have to work my way through the rest of my list, but I’ll get there, eventually.
In exciting weather news, snow is actually in the forecast for the San Francisco Bay Area in the next 48 hours. The last time it snowed here was in 1976. I was . . . oh, forget how old I was then! Suffice it to say that it was a long time ago and I was a good deal younger than Tom and Huck are now. If it does snow here, I fully intend to spend the day outside with Tom and Huck. We can pretend that we live in a place with a real winter. I’ll be sure and post photos if it does actually snow. Right now, I’ve got to make sure we have some firewood, some hot cocoa, and all the fixings for tomato soup, grilled cheese sandwiches, and chocolate chip cookies. (What I imagine people eat who live in an area with an actual winter.)
See you in the stacks!
