You can have anything you want if you want it badly enough. You can be anything you want to be, do anything you set out to accomplish if you hold to that desire with singleness of purpose.”

    Good morning, Fae. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your comment. Yay! you will get your first vaccine this week! It is awesome that your husband does the cooking for you both. My husband is retired, too, but he doesn't cook very often, though I wish he would. I have no complaints though, because he takes care of everything else here: grocery shopping, errands, house cleaning, yard work. He will even clean toilets and the shower, but he will not dust. LOL, I can manage the latter.....seems a good trade-off. Essentially, he makes it so I can fully focus on my client work and babysitting the grands. I feel pretty lucky emoticon

    Wishing you a super successful healthy and fit day and week! emoticon

    Losing 2 days during tax season is tough -- that's expressed in tax season hours, not a usual 9-5 kind of day. Many years ago, I worked for a CPA for a couple of tax seasons. The work before a due date is grueling and long, long days are typical. I feel your pain. I had a business owner's wife text me last night at 10:30p inquiring when the corporate tax return would be ready. She just turned over a full year's worth of expense reimbursements a week ago (always late). emoticon To compound things, the CPA who works for himself and who will prepare the taxes called me last week to tell me he has covid; he is older and he sounds terrible. I hope and pray he will be okay.....good thing extensions can be filed if needed for these unusual times. Sending you wishes to stay safe and healthy! (and sane!) emoticon emoticon
