I'll tell you what I want to get rid of. The box of receipts, the stacks of file folders with bills, bank statements, credit card statements and invoices that are scolding me from every surface of my office. Less than two weeks to file taxes. Technically, because I am self-employed, I have until June to file (as long as I pay anything I owe by April 30), but I don't want to have this tedium hanging over me that long. And don't tell me to hire an accountant. By the time I've sorted everything into categories, I might as well just take the last step of entering the figures into my accounting program and do my taxes myself. It's a warmish, soft rain day here — the rhodos are in bloom or about to bloom, the bushtits are checking out the clematis to see if they want to nest there, and I haven't seen the rabbit in two days. Phew. Perhaps my lettuce babies are safe for the moment. Today's plan is to work, work, work on a program, ads, and business cards, maybe do some timesheets and catch up to the point where I can enter some receipts. Lots of coffee in the plan too.
