March 30, 2018
Good morning. It's early, but I have a very early morning appointment with my tax accountant. How did that happen? I was reading the paperwork that my accountant had sent to me a few months ago, and finally saw a line that I had missed. It read "I cannot guarantee that any information received after March 31 will be filed before the deadline."
What? Oh no, I still had columns to add and I didn't even have an appointment. I called the accountants office and was told that the only appointment he had open before sometime next week was at nine o'clock this morning. I had no choice. I had to take it!
So, I spent most of yesterday adding tons of numbers and totaling all my columns. I just hope that my totals are correct. I am not a numbers person. Please, I will do your laundry for you if you will just do all these numbers for me!
Once I got done with all this adding, I started new pages for 2018. I've already made my way through my checkbooks. Next, I'll do all the receipts and credit card statements. Hopefully, I can keep this up throughout the year. This will make next year's task so much easier.
Meanwhile I will see about getting me a new adding machine. One with paper so that I can check my addition easily for mistakes. I tried using the calculator on my phone, but if there are more than three or four numbers to be added, my pudgy little fingers always manage to make a mistake and hit a few wrong keys. I need to be able to see the numbers printed out on paper in order to check for mistakes.
The first thing I did this morning after I made my coffee was to get out the slow cooker and start my supper. Pogo and I are having a corned beef and cabbage meal tonight. Yum! Yum! It's one of the things that I had ordered from Omaha Steaks. I'll let you know how it comes out.
Once we are finished at the accountant's office, Pogo and I will head over to the gunsmith's store and pick up my gun. Then we'll head to the bank before coming back home. If my breathing is good, maybe we'll stop by Ocean State Job Lot and do a bit of shopping. Pogo loves this store. Everyone there loves him and he gets to meet a lot of people.
Before I take my leave, I want to share a really cute photo of Pogo's little friend, Cisco. He's resting in his bed with his new blanket and his Piggy baby. Isn't he just the cutest little fellow? Cisco, we hope you are having a super day today. Hugs and woofs to you Sweetie.
Now I really must get going here. It's time to get dressed and start getting ready to leave for my morning appointment. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
