drowning in paperwork!

The good news is that the end is in sight in terms of my taxes. Phew! This has been one of those experiences of learning the hard way what is required when starting a business. There are things that were never mentioned in the seminars I took, and I didn't know enough at the time to know to ask the right questions. I still have lots to do to get a system in place to make all of this accounting easy, but at least I think I've got all the necessary data pulled together for the accountant. Thank goodness for her!

As if that weren’t enough, however, I’ve got another form to fill out, wanting all sorts of depreciated values for things that I had decided not to depreciate. The state has adopted this new means of assessing tangible personal property used in my business, and frankly, I don’t know how I can possibly give them the info they want by the deadline that is printed boldly in red, capitalized, underlined, and highlighted in every other conceivable way throughout the documentation they sent! If it’s not one thing, it’s another!

BUT! The good news is that in less than a week this will all be behind me, because on Friday we leave for Florida and a reunion with some of the Cabana Crew and a visit for several days with Jules and ‘e.’ Hip-hip, hurray! I’m picturing sunshine (better than the freezing rain we’ve had today), drinks in the hot tub, strolls on the beach, and lots of laughter and good times.

Taxes, schmaxes…

You'll be a-lovin' our weather when you get here Anne as it's beautiful right now. Perfect for driving in Flo with the top down which is what we'll be doing on our way to Heidi's class!!

Anne, it sounds ever so complicated but you SOUND like you know what is going on which is halfway there anyway. The best bit is all you have to look forward too - now that is exciting. And I love the pics of Ken Jr. I must say I have a soft spot for boys in uniform.
