Making it through the winter chores...

There is just something about the winter months that keeps me soo busy.

First it's the holidays and all of it's hoopla, get ready for, then doing and then there is the recooping. Then we move into the switching over to the new year, for me that is a big deal. Switch out all the previous folders of bills and reciepts, tally the expenses of the year, file away all this junk and throw away the stuff from years past (but first go through it all and determine that it is throw awayable). Then there is all the stuff that was in storage that we are going through and repackaging, organizing and downsizing, what a chore. AND lets not forget TAX season, what a big stresser! Naturally I had to add to the mess with taking on 6 crochet projects to be finished before the warmer weather kicks in, which happens fast here in Texas.

Well I made it through all the paperwork and craziness and managed to get it all done. My desk is finally clean and my drawers/folders are ready for the new year, finally. The holidays are finally behind me (except for hubby's upcoming b-day)and the crocheting is more than half done. Still working on the storage stuff.

Maybe now that I have eliminated a large portion of it all, I will be able to think straight and get back on track with this blog and all my friends.

EEEK to tax season. I feel bad that I haven't even made my appointment with the accountant yet.

All I need are the rest of the forms telling me what I need to know to file my taxes. Not my favorite job, but then neither is that file cleaning thing. Which I haven't even started yet. Kudos to you for being done already!

Warm Weather is coming and will be here soon, sounds like you are ahead of schedule, heck we are still gathering forms to do the tax stuff.

You're far too organized. I've been away for a while and I've missed reading your blog.

I am so impressed with how organized you are! I need to get my butt in gear too!

Sounds like you have been one busy and productive girl! Wish I could say the same.

I started the taxes yesterday. So much to learn about the business filing now that I'm freelancing. Sadly, my 17 year old made ten times as much as I did. LOL. But I get to work from home. =]
