Waiting for coffee

It has been a mild fall and winter here in Colatown. Yesterday, it was even balmy. This is great for electric bills and outdoor cats, but it's not winter.

I am waiting for the coffee to finish making itself, then I am starting my day. My productive day. My productive fantastic day.

I have taken off three days from work. ##GASP## (That was my boss.)

Tax season starts in mid-January, but before that, we need to finish all bookkeeping & make sure clients don't have nasty surprises. (A profit is often a nasty surprise... go figure.) I have to organize schedules and do what I can to make sure my boss doesn't over-hire during tax season. Optimize, I say, but who listens to me? And I have to complete W-2s & 1099s as soon as possible so that people can get their own taxes done.

And then there's Christmas & New Years and that entails. Don't get me started...

My theory is that if I clean (really clean) my house, I will be better prepared for the rest of the world. I am not sure if it will work, and I'm not sure if a clean house is sustainable, and I'm not sure if 20 years of neurotic build-up can be cleaned in three to six days (counting Friday through Sunday), but I'm going to give it a shot. I'll keep you posted.

I so need to take time off to declutter. Good luck and send my best.
Thanks also for the comment, I appreciate it.

we were just talking about that - a clean house will help declutter your mind and make you feel better. And have the courage to toss or donate a lot - it will make you feel lighter when it leaves the carport. Hugs!!!

a clean house also spares embarrassment, but I always seem to manage to time it wrong, making excuses for the mess and then cleaning after my visitors have left. Good luck with the cleaning and the job, though how you manage both is nothing short of miraculous to me. I started on my own Augean Stables yesterday in an attempt at getting back to work on some pottery ideas that have been trying to shove their way up from the depths into my consciousness. Keep us posted on you progress -- you're an inspiration!
