Thank goodness for friends and Excel! I am almost embarrassed to say up until a few weeks ago I had no idea how much money or not I had been making since I started my business in February. My receipts have been in various places a stack in the office,one under the coffee table in the family room and some in file folders in the dining room. It really was just a big mess! I am so happy to say after one visit from Diane I am on my way to organization. I was drooling over her spreadsheet a few weeks ago and she so eagerly offered to help me….no words can describe what a blessing this is! I’ve got a long way to go but at least it’s started. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
The last week or so the afternoons are cooling faster and getting a little darker. The leaves are slowly changing color and you can feel the seasons changing. Making a pot of soup just sounds good…it’s on the stove now:) This made me realize I am much more excited about the holidays this year than I have been in awhile. I was at work this week and had to bring my space back from a disheveled mess from the weekend. What do people do?…I wonder sometimes. Feeling the change of season inspired me to add some Halloween color and fresh flowers…ahhh better:)
Lastly, today is my 14th wedding anniversary. Over these past 14 yrs Jon and I have been raising 4 kids, moved 6 times, started several businesses and had more ups & downs than I could even begin to describe. Tonight he’s in a hotel in another state going to sales training. And I’m about to get in bed with our 7 year old snuggled up with his stuffed animals and I’m ok with that. Why is this such a big deal? Well I’m just that very traditional gotta have the romance kinda girl. Today wasn’t that at all…but the more I thought about it I was reminded that it’s not the big hoopla for the “anniversary day/night” it’s the day to day that matters most. At least this year he filled out the card not just told me he bought one:)…and knowing he will always come home to me grumpy or not he’s my hub and I love him more and more with every year that passes.
Happy Anniversary Babe 🙂
On that note off to bed with my little snuggle bug
