It looks like the phone answering service that I hooked us up with at work is working out well. I was a bit nervous about being handed a task as important as this one, since if our phone system isn’t up to speed then customers and ultimately management aren’t happy.
Since our receptionist has been out on maternity leave, some of her tasks have been handed over to the remaining people stuck in the office for most of the day, much like me. Guess it could have been worse, at least it is over and the situation under control and the office manager isn’t all over my back.
I have been contemplating taking a tax class and then take the much talked about tax preparer exam and then during tax season I could get one of those tax preparer jobs that so many people have turned to in order to generate some income into the household.
I like the fact that a tax preparer only has to work part of the year, so that leaves a lot of time left in order to do the things that so many working mothers need to take care of these days. I would love to be able to help friends and family with their tax questions and their tax forms at no charge, as well as learning a whole lot in order to get my taxes done with the best return possible. That would just be so worth it and so cool. I am going to start looking into this real soon.
Stepping out of the United States isn’t something that I have had the opportunity to do in my lifetime, but you can bet that one day I will have the time and the money to do a bit of traveling before I get to old to enjoy it.
A good friend of mine has been living in the gili islands for over three years and she has decided to start looking for salon equipment to buy since she loves it over there and it going to put her roots down there. She has always been good with hair and has wanted to open up her own salon for as long as I can remember. It’s wonderful to know that she is really doing what she wants to do, even it is all the way across the world!
I can’t even imagine how much of a challenge to be opening up your own business in a land so far away from home. Just finding all the salon equipment has to offer off or online would be too much of a challenge for me, since I have such a hard time making decisions. I wish her all the luck in finding a beauty equipment supplier that will treat her fair in getting this dream done.
I really like the new led lights that my son put on his dad’s truck for him today. I’m so glad that he his finally starting to show some interest in spending more time around here with his dad rather than running around town with his friends playing their very loud, outrageous music and having their sound activated lights that at times really gets my head a pounding. I never used to be so sensitive to certain lights. I am even noticing that I’m having a harder time driving at night. The oncoming headlights are getting harder for me to stay on the road.
The weather has been delightful and they both have been getting a good amount of things taken care of around here this past week. Now if only I could get them to help weed and harvest the garden so I could get that under control. I really want it done by the middle of October.
Well, after several hectic days working on that project, I sent in the draft and expected to finish it up the night before meeting with the client. But the client had a change of plans and came in a day early, so they flew with the draft. That was a little disconcerting, but he says it was a hit. So it’s done and I hope we get to make the deal. Cross your fingers for me!
