Back in the mid-1980's I spent a couple years working as a receptionist and legal secretary in a law firm. Have you ever noticed how law firms never have nice easy names like "Smith, Brown and Jones?" The one I worked in -- no kidding -- had the ponderous handle of "Laugenour, Johanson & Robinson." Try saying that fifty times a day on the telephone.
Anyway, sometimes the phones were pretty crazy; and so one year for Christmas one of my coworkers gave me a mug that said, "That line is still busy; will you hold till Monday?"
I thought it was hilarious because it expressed how I so often felt. (That's why I still have the mug after all these years.)
Well, that's how I've been feeling this week as I remain immersed in taxes.
I've been putting everything else on hold while I crunch numbers. I don't use Quickbooks or any other computer program (I hate them!) so everything is done by hand.
But I'm making progress. Excellent progress. In fact, I should be done by tomorrow. Then I can re-emerge to join the living and might even answer some calls... er, emails.
Please stand by.......
