As I start my income-tax preparation for 2009, there are some things I realize. I have to be more organized. It’s imperative. I also realize one of my biggest flaws.
I am not organized.
It’s horrible. My mom isn’t either. The rest of my family? Born organized. That’s right. Organization is in their genetics. How did it skip me?
In all seriousness, last years paperwork is a mess. It will probably take me a week to straighten it all out working in fits and starts. Needless to say, I am not happy with myself. Perturbed is the word I need to be using.
However, I would like to say that 2010 is organized so far. I have set up my files. Everything is filed. I know, I know. We are only seven days into the new year. But, give a gal credit. I didn’t set up files until last May for 2009 and filed haphazardly at best.
However, I have been reading “Writer Mama” by Christina Katz and learning from her. She sets such a great example and the guidance she offers is immeasurable.
Updates will come, I am sure of it. But I am fighting it every step of the way. My career depends upon it.
