YES !! and yes !!!
ok.. so this should throw a few readers - two posts in one day!
BUT ......... i just had to share..........
Remember back in the fall when I was learning how to do the damn accounting program??? Remember my fear that I would be audited and get thrown in jail??? (I should learn to keep my bloody mouth shut and not tempt fate)
Last week I got a call from the Federal Government. They wanted / needed to do an audit.
A U D I T !! Yikes!!
I made it very clear to the auditor that a) I don't do math/accounting b) my past accountant was an asshole - and I only learned that after he left c) I would probably cry.
He was very calm and told me that I shouldn't stress - that it would be ok. Right and I am gonna believe him???
Well he came this morning at 9:00 a.m sharp. Took forever to get his laptop and files all set up on my desk. The first thing he asked me for I couldn't find.. anywhere !!! I panicked. He calmly kept setting up. I settled down and found the paperwork.
Three hours later he packed everything up. Yes I got hit with an assessment - BUT - he only charged me the minimum penalty .. and minimum interest. (it's still a chunk of cash - but it could have been much worse)
The best news was ......... he checked 2011 which I did with my new bookkeeper and it was perfect... dead on! So now I know I am on track..... He shook my hand - smiled and told me to stop worrying - and left.
Now the other bit of news I just have to share....... I am SO excited!! W and I are heading off on a road trip on Friday!! We're going to Kingston Ontario to spend the weekend. We will be attending a munch up there....... going to a train show....... and making good use of our hotel room for some play time. Two whole days!!! I so needed this.
It has been one year since I was admitted to the hospital. One year - hard to believe. I want to celebrate life and love and health....... and will get to do that in style this weekend.
So......... this has been thumbs up day !
