Still Figuring

We haven't posted too many different new items in the store for the past couple of weeks.

We are hoping to get a chance to get some new items in there this coming week.

Working on the books for taxes is a big job.

And I don't see an end in sight yet.

Last year was the earliest we had ever got them done - the second week in February.

Would like to see them done by then this year, but it isn't looking that way yet.

Oh well, back to the grind - the adding machine and computer are working overtime!

Book Work Overload

Now that the old year has ended, it is time to get down to some serious book work.

Time to organize all the expenses.

Time to get the invoices in order.

Time to scrutinize the pages and pages of payments.

And time to add all this stuff up, categorize it, and input the numbers by month into the computer accounting program.

Then we can start thinking about those dreaded taxes.

Should take a good couple of months to get this all done.

And I am so thankful that the computer can do so much - I remember many years of doing all this stuff by hand.

One couldn't wait until year-end, it had to be done as you went along.

Things have certainly come a long way!
