Since the last time I had tons of paperwork to do because I hadn't done it in a timely manner, I've been keeping on top of it. I input payments as they're received, I send out invoices as soon as the product has shipped (I usually do this when Brian's taking the boxes down to UPS).
And amazingly, I've got all of this free time! I guess the idea that I had so much to do before was just hanging over my head so I didn't feel like I could be doing whatever I wanted to do; the guilt that I should be doing paperwork...I've always been weird that way, I guess the remnants of whatever neurousis my mom carried. Like when we go for our morning walk and the neighbor's gates are wide open - that really bothers me. It makes a ripple in my universe (yet the mess in my drawers and closets doesn't bother me).
We have enough money in the bank to pay the federal taxes, the house payment is coming due, there's money for that and I like that feeling.
So, I'll be reconciling both bank accounts this morning, paying a few little bills and doing the little bit of filing this will leave me.
Then I want to make a new shirt. You know how I've talked about getting advanced screening passes to movies? Well, we've got one to go to this week (Draft Day) and since we wait in line for so long, I want a specialty shirt. I think the FaceBook thumbs up icon with "free movies" below that. I have to decide on colors, I need to check my stock of vinyl before picking out the shirt color.
It's nice to think I can do this and not be worried about the paperwork that's piling up.
