Turning "To Do" ... Into ... "Ta Da"
Just around the bend there is always something to get done. This week brings me one step closer to getting beyond procrastination and into the "it is finished" mode. I've just completed my yearly task of gathering tax records and readying them for our CPA. Only one area is blank ... that's for hubby to calculate (union dues). I've even made the all important appointment to have our home owner association's tax return prepared next week. Remember, last year I volunteered to be the secretary/treasurer and pulled my hair out. Well, hopefully now that we have the whole set up nearly automated with a new bookkeeping firm, it won't be such a nasty pill to swallow (let's hope). A weight is suddenly lifted ... aaaah! Keeping organized is vital to maintaining one's sanity (at least in my realm).
Soldier boy just called. Seems the military didn't post his change of address that he submitted meaning they will only ship his belongings (upon discharge next week) to the home address he had when he enlisted over eight years ago. Efficiency is one of the government's bright spots (not). So ... he's 'donating' most of his stuff (ironing board, tv, vcr, etc.) to needy friends :) on base ... and stuffing the rest of his gear in the back seat of his car. Not sure if the surfboard will fit ... but who needs a surfboard in Idaho, eh?
What's on your To Do/Ta Da list?
