There's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza

I am scattered this morning. I cannot get all my thoughts in one place...bear with me, this could make no sense. And if I have already commented on your blog, I do apologize, I guess I am tired. Yesterday was the day that would not end. Today should be better, we are leaving town sometime around noon, but I have a lot to accomplish before that time...suffice it to say, the way things are looking, i could leave town without something important, like my clothes....that would be bad. :(

I arrived home late last night, and the very idea of trying to put anything together for this three day trip was impossible, so i have to try and pack this morning. I know, I will not be well prepared for the weekend.

My work is not going well. I was determined to get the financial statement (for SEPTEMBER) completed before I left last evening, as it should have been done at least a week ago, but hey there are so many hours in the day, and I haven't been able to get to my own work for at least that long...but my new help has things quite messed up,(in her defense-she is NEW at this) and i could have even by-passed all of that and at least made it all LOOK okay, at least okay enough for the monthly submit to General Motors, but then I remembered that the September statement is the one that has to be sent in to GMAC each year WITH ALL THE SUPPORTING SCHEDULES, and there is NO WAY i can send in such garbage, so I am just pretty much f***ed. I will have to painstakingly fix each problem and that will take days, and you know...days is just what I have. Because there are no 941 quarterly tax filings due for both businesses by the end of this month, and there are no state tax withholding reports due by the end of this month, and there are no sales tax quarterly reports due by the end of this month, and there are no quarterly iowa unemployment reports due by the end of the month, and no federal unemployment deposits by the end of the month and there are no annual unclaimed property reports by the end of this month, and these aren't all times two because I don't take care of the dealership and the ICS, but I can tell you that the utilities are not going to be turned off anywhere because I did manage to get the bills straightened out, and paid, and that took all the time I have had at my desk when I haven't been at the service has been a mess all month. I have not had to pay the dealership bills for years, my last assistant has always done it, and it has been difficult to fit it in, as well as understand what has/has not been done. I also have to do the owners annual personal financial statement this month, and that can be a bit of a hassle, too. But I do have to say, that everyone in the back was back at work yesterday...and they all seemed healthy or mostly so, so hopefully, that is improving. The Owner left sick again last evening, he really needs to go back to the Dr, but he wont, he really is not well. He said he would be in today if he was better, I told him I was leaving at noon and I hoped he was better. I also reminded him that I had told him of my plans quite a while ago. He looked at me like he had no idea what I was talking about and nodded. I probably shouldn't be taking the time off this afternoon and tomorrow, but I am. I will be back on Monday, all the crisis' will have to wait. I will somehow get it all done, although at this time, I am not sure how. Seriously. I am so tired of all the burden and the pressure. If I felt better it wouldn't all be so hard. Wah wah wah wah wah. Whine much?

I am walking okay, the pain is bad, but I am mostly strong. I will take that.

OS is coming to take care of CrazyDog this weekend, D will be here, too, but she and CrazyDog can't see eye to eye on anything. CD will be happy to see him.

Kitty slept on my head for a while in the night....he is quite warm, and loud. :)

I will be back Sunday evening. Have a good weekend. Later.

You have to try and put it all out of your mind over the weekend. You badly need this time to heal and rest and worrying about work will only hinder that. It will all still be there on Monday and spoiling your weekend thinking about it won't make it go away. Wish I could come over and give you a hand. I'm good in a crisis and I LOVE paperwork. Truly.

Sweet, dear lady, I hope you have a peaceful, restful weekend with as little pain as possible.

You have a good weekend. Try not to think of the work left behind. There's only so many hours in the day, and you filled them as best you could. I hope they appreciate that.

Walking away from it all for a couple of days sounds like an excellent idea. Have fun. Be safe.
