Accounting for Words

I have been very fortunate in my life to run into people who are very complementary to me in terms of their skillsets. One of these talented people is the owner of a lovely business called Words and Numbers.

She's my "go-to" person when I am not sure what the Generally Accepted Accounting Principle is for a certain bit of information that is lofted onto my desk at work. It is good to have a person like that when you are an Admin. who is doing much (very unfamiliar) accounting work. She is also Xero (I am pretty sure I am spelling that correctly) Certified and an extremely talented writer.

Since I don't believe that any of us is well served by standing in our little corner of the world shouting about how wonderful we are, I decided that I should let MY corner of the Internet know about Words and Numbers. She didn't ask me to do this. She's not paying me to say any of this, this is just the sort of networking that makes the business world (especially the business world of solopreneurs) go 'round.

Not Riff Raff

Just when you think you have things figured out, something weird happens. A friend of mine interviewed for a job about a month ago and didn't hear from the company and assumed that the opportunity was no longer available (a reasonable assumption)... So imagine friend's surprise when the phone rings today and the company wants to do a second interview! Follow-up on this will be done (friend is traveling for business right now but company expressed interest in following up when availability is more readily known).

Have you ever registered for a seminar that turned out to not be what you thought it would be? That was my experience today. It wasn't a BAD seminar, it was just not what was expected and it's a little annoying when the seminar leader gets surly when you have information to share with the class after they've asked for questions. I also find the process of being a VIP member and being asked for identification a little maddening. Most of the time being a VIP means you don't have to be bothered with proving that you are not the riff raff. Oh well.

I need to figure out something to do about my footwear. The shoes I wear on a daily basis are just not really suitable, but dress shoes are not appropriate, either. Need to find some sort of happy medium.

The rest of the week will be busy. I need to go grocery shopping after work tomorrow night as I have an obligation on Thursday night. I suppose that I could wait until Friday but just getting it over with tomorrow would be better.

Tired and sore tonight. Should try to get to bed early. Won't happen, but I should try.
