I worked all day on my taxes again and I finished!  Yay!  I finished early today and had time to invoice my clients for February.  I think they will be in shock to get an invoice so early in the month.

I did find that one client paid me twice for the same thing by accident.  I am going to bring it to their attention tomorrow.  It is $300 they over paid me.  Someone was not paying attention to the invoice and the check they wrote.

Until tomorrow...

Today I worked all day on my taxes.  Having a business and then of course my personal taxes takes days to get everything all organized.  Every year I think wouldn't it be great to organize the stuff each month?  Yeah, right!  I can barely get around to invoicing my clients each month!

I am pretty organized that I put all receipts in a folder and keep really good track of where I go so I have 98% of my mileage, tolls and parking kept track of.  I just don't have it neatly in a spreadsheet until I do my taxes and that is why it takes so long.

Until tomorrow...

I just finished the book Beautiful Ruins.  Now you might ask where do I find the time to read a book?  Well, it took me about a month and a half to read this book.  I mostly read at 4 am when I wake up and can't fall back to sleep right away and at 6:20 am when Lucky wakes me up to go outside and once again I can't fall back to sleep right away.  I am so happy I got a Kindle because I open it up read a few pages with the backlight turned down and fall asleep holding the Kindle. 

This book was hard to start.  I hated the first chapter.  I had to start it twice.  I thought I would hate this book but I heard it was great so I wanted to give it a chance.  Once I got into it, I was stuck.  I wanted to read it every day.  I recommend this book.

Until tomorrow...

I am going to be talking about my feet so if you are squeamish about feet or foot issues, this is your warning to close this blog and come back tomorrow.

I have horrible foot troubles.  Many folks with RA have foot troubles.  My feet hurt a lot especially in the morning.  They swell.  I had warts for years that took years to get rid of because I could not get them cut out.

Now I have corns.  I didn't know what to do with corns.  I spoke to my doc and he said to use corn pads.  I have been using them for about a week now and they seem to be working.  It is easier to walk since it is less painful.  I am hoping to have my feet look nicer before we go away on vacation.  For my birthday I asked for this new product called Amope Pedi Perfect.  It is supposed to make your feet look nicer.  I can only hope.

Until tomorrow...

My very nice neighbor brought me some flowers. He went to a flower mart and bought too many flowers so he put together this lovely arrangement and rang my doorbell.  Aren't they beautiful?  Nothing cheers up my day like a beautiful flower arrangement. 

Until tomorrow...

Tonight I made Lemon Almond Risotto.  It turned out really good. 

Until tomorrow...

I went to a meeting and had to stand up to some people who were trying to make a bad decision.  They didn't want to hear what I was saying.  They wanted to do what they wanted.  Isn't that always the way?  I know the law and the procedures but don't listen to me!  So frustrating.  You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.  Or you can tell people the law but you can't make them adhere to it.  What is it that people think they can skirt the law or that the law doesn't pertain to them?   In the end, I convinced them to make a better decision.

Until tomorrow...
