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.
