Of course I'm willing to help.

Carol, you are quite possibly the hardest working person I've ever met. You inspire me when I feel like just sitting on my butt!!

However, I did get a little down time of just relaxing with my family this weekend, and I really needed that. I feel energized and ready to take on new challenges!

Sydney and I hit the mall on Friday morning and it was surprisingly not very busy. I guess more and more people are cyber shopping and also a lot of people go out Thursday night so Friday morning is just less crazy than it used to be. I would never ever go out on Thanksgiving night to shop. Morally I am just opposed to making people work retail on a holiday. I know people like public safety folks need to work, but everyone else should get a holiday.

We found a new brew pub near us, so we finally tried it out last night. It was awesome. Also, it was really nice to see a revitalized downtown area working to have people come by locally. In my mind I really want to grow my business to service all of these small businesses. For now, I'm focused on getting these two clients in good shape (one already is) and then I need to start marketing my business. Carol, I might send you a few questions I have on my distillery/bar client if you don't mind. Knowing you, you'll be very willing to help!!

I've really been struggling the last few months feeling a bit out of control. This weekend has helped me sort of "defrag" my brain and I'm feeling much better!!

Have a great Sunday!!

We'll be working on the kitchen in the current house and tomorrow we'll go work on the new house. It's being tented, so we will go in and I'll steam clean the carpets and wipe down all of the cupboards. The new house has a lot of cupboards so it should be a real job. It seems kinda silly to steam clean when we're just going to rip all the carpet out, but they say after tenting you should steam clean your carpet to get the residual chemicals out...I just don't know if it's that important considering it is a gas substance.

Happy Thanksgiving! We were supposed to fly up to my father-in-law's house with Tom's brother flying the plane and our daughter. Hubby decided he wanted to stay home and work on the house which I am all for! This morning I got up and cooked two vegetarian dishes for my daughter to take with her and I'm calling it done. Today we'll put in more cabinets in the kitchen and I'll rip out the old ones. It's a great workout and tons of fun.

I started my practice with a lot of bars and restaurants, I love them. If I'm sticking with them I usually put them on 4-4-5 fiscal months so that it's easy to compare from one year to the next. That way January and February are always exactly the same length since those are usually the slow months and you really want to know how you're doing. I loved doing the bar/restaurants in Santa Barbara. A couple had bands play and at Christmas time I'd get them together and do a Toys-for-Tots drive. We get Kenny Loggins and other stars to come play and the cover charge was 2 toys. So fun!

My company is doing a toy drive so I need to come up with some cool ideas of toys to make. I like to do silly bibs and bath robes for babies. If anyone has any good ideas, let me know!

Hi Carol!! Our plans are very quiet this year for Thanksgiving. It's just hubby, daughter and me cooking a reasonably sized dinner and enjoying a day at home with family. I'm so excited to just relax a bit.

I've been stressing a bit over one of my two clients ( emoticon ). They are a distillery and bar and they have been doing their own bookkeeping all year. I came into the picture in July and part of my service is to do the bookkeeping and the returns next year. But the owner wants to keep doing the bookkeeping himself and just have me review it. Which would be fine if he actually was doing it correctly, but he's a hot mess with recording sales. I've never accounted for a restaurant or bar, so it's been a challenge for me to wrap my head around it. I had a eureka moment yesterday and another one today and now I know how to fix it and make the books correct. Phew! Now, I can enjoy my weekend, even if I do have to reconstruct his books for the entire year in my own way!!

That's what I'll be doing on Saturday and Sunday!!

I'm so happy that it's a short week! We're hoping our new house funds today so that we get our keys. I'm super excited to not have a long commute to work anymore.

What are people's Thanksgiving plans? Haha...we don't have any yet. Tom's brother-in-law said he didn't have any plans either so we should get together, so maybe we will have plans...though we've done no shopping yet.

Good Morning all!! I hope everyone had a great weekend!! I was busy, as usual, but not too busy and I had some nice relaxing time as well. I also worked out hard yesterday and as a result I'm feeling energetic today!

It's a short week, and for that I'm grateful. I could use a long weekend!!

I hope everyone has a great week!!!
