frustrations

It is possible I might punch someone in the face. So don’t come knocking on my door today. It’s kind of a long story, but I’ll try to keep it brief.

Last spring I bought QuickBooks Pro 2011 (it was on sale). I had planned to get all of my stuff in there so when tax season rolled around again, I’d be ready. Also, I determined it would be a good idea for me to keep track of things better. However – you guessed it – I waited until now to try and figure out how this stupid software works. We are meeting with the accountant on March 3 and I am in trouble. At the library I picked up a copy of QuickBooks for Dummies. But I must be a real dummy because it still isn’t clicking. I go back and forth between having a brilliant break-through only to realize later that I put something in five different places and now it thinks I have 400 teabags.

All I want it to do is 1) keep track of what I sell 2) keep track of what I buy and 3) compare them so I know how much money I am losing.

So I have been sitting here the last two days trying to work through it. I have amassed a silly amount of stuff around me and the cat insists on sitting on my lap. At least I was smart enough to stop turning on the TV, which was far too distracting. In fact, Olive is here right now trying to figure out where to put her butt.

Making it "work".
Yes, that is a glass of water, a cup of tea, and lunch.
