I Am Going to be EXTREMELY CRAZY from 1/26 - 1/31

Sunday, January 25, 2015



As most everyone knows by now I am a semi-retired full charge bookkeeper. I have somehow been cajoled into working as a bookkeeper every day this coming week by hysterical clients who waited till the last possible second to do their Payroll Quarterly Taxes and the 1099's and some who are trying to get the stuff ready ahead of time for their accountants--par for the course. I'll get it done for them-and I'm sure they all are suddenly going to become hysterical because their accountants need the year end information--but that will hopefully be a bit staggered, mainly because the information won't even be in their mailboxes till sometime in February. We won't even think about my own taxes which I have semi started but am no where near completing! All this week I have been answering questions on my home phone and walking clients through some payroll stuff--no I don't charge or get paid for that. Then there was the woman who needed me to walk her through printing a report. I won't go into the fact that I have printed the exact same report 5 times for her-she keeps misplacing them!! And then, of course I am driving my Mom around and trying my darndest to read, write up reviews for next week and in general keep up with my blog!!!!!!!!

So, why am I writing this on Sunday--well--I am hoping most of you will at least see it and be patient with me. I will be in the comment threads etc and I will be commenting--just not a quickly as I try to be normally. I will finish one days thread before entering another--If by chance I miss someone PLEASE just let me know-I will rectify it as soon as I possibly can.

Well I better stop typing and start reading--one review is due on the 28th (I already have Monday and Tuesday covered)-then find some short books for the rest of the week.

(Note from Baby--Mom is driving me crazy-she giving me hard time getting up cause she not going to sleep when I tell her to! She typing instead of petting me-this must STOP-maybe if I walk on that thing she types on and try to flip it over Mom will get the message?)

Now if I could just convince Baby to let me sleep a bit later--but then that is when I will probably be playing catch up with my blog!!

Awww I hope it does go smoothly. Nothing like doing things at the last minute but I'm sure your clients do believe in your talents and know that you can do it. When the craziest dies down it might be time to take a vacation. :)

Masshole Mommy said...

Gotta love those people that wait until the very last second to submit their stuff. I hope you get it all done and manage not to go too crazy :)

Krystal said...

Taxes! Bah! I have to admit, I'm a last minute Mary when it comes to that.

Holly S. said...

That does not sound like fun! Hopefully it won't be too hectic for you!

Lesley said...

Tell yourself the opposite out loud, "I will not be crazy wacky this week, I will be calm, I will be cool, I will collected and self-controlled." *Breathe in, breathe out* REPEAT "I will be cool, I will be calm, I will be chill" LOL We are what we think. ;)

Taxes... love to hate them LOL!!! But they are something we need to do. Glad you are there to help so many.

Good luck on surviving the week! You've got this!! Then you get to collapse and rest afterwards.

Panicked customers are the best customers. You can usually charge any amount you wish!

Just take it one step at a time! And cute kitty!

I don't envy you at tax time. I hate to do my OWN taxes, much less anyone else's.

Pam said...

You have a busy week ahead of you for sure. I guess it is nice to be wanted, LOL. Good luck to you this week and love the pic of the cat.

Good luck with all the coming challenges and last minute rush. You'll survive it, and be armed with stories to share on what not to do at tax time. Ha! ;-)

Oh man, that does sound crazy. Hope it all gets done ;-)
Just dropped by and am having a fine time reading your reviews ;-)

Busy week for you! Don't stress too much! :)

It sounds like you are going to be running a little too much. Breathe, drink coffee and we'll all be here when your life is back to normal. :)

Take your time. Sometimes having too much to do is overwhelming!

Liz Mays said...

I honestly don't know how you manage to keep up with all of this. You must be a really quick reader!

Yona Williams said...

Lol…too cute to have your cat help you plead your case. It sounds like you have a lot on your plate. Me personally, I cannot stand anything to do with numbers, so my brain would be exploding with stress.
