I have fallen down the rabbit hole of tax preparation and deadlines this week. As luck would have it for a numbers-adverse maker like myself, I am the crypt-keeper of the books for our consulting business. (I am forced to do this by marriage, otherwise I'd run the other way.)
Somebody is determined to make a numbers girl out of me yet.
Funny, but I always see this time of year heading for me and yet I still am caught off guard. Maybe I like to convince my misery into a neat little month-long (or less) package, not draw it all out the whole year prior.
But I actually think after a couple of days with my head pointed straight at our Quickbooks file, I think we are in good shape for our accountant. Time-consuming though. I looked away from the computer today for an hour to eat lunch and do you know what I did? I watched an episode of Hoarders. It was so gross, I almost threw up a little of my lunch before it was over.
Why do I subject myself to these shows??
(My house did look incredibly clean afterwards.)
I got the granny circles sewn together while I watched (they felt practically sterile). I am so in love with the way this project is coming together. Its almost done, Ian helped me pick out some buttons today, which will finish it off into a pillow, for someone special.
Thank you for the nice words about Emma's work. I'm so proud of her. She's in the studio working on a new project as I type this. She inspires me in so many ways.
