Here's the scoop...

So I started these classes, to improve my office skills and they are taking more time and brain cells then I would have thought. Ahh who am I kidding…I’m trying to learn accounting hooey. And let me say, no offense to any of my number inclined dear internets, it is very brain taxing. And full of reverse, backwards, opposite kinds of a system. Humph!

I’m also taking Excel 2007, next month will be quick books (?) and another round of accounting and Excel and I won’t even mention October and the rest of my life…Now that I have complained about a good thing I will trudge on.

I will still be posting (gotta have some funs), however my visiting of your places may be a little less than normal. I’ll try to come over when I can and if my brain allows I’ll leave love notes or kicks in the pants; whichever is necessary. Okay fine so maybe a hug.

Numbers and figuring is making me a little OCD. I drive the car and try and figure out how many miles to a gallon and was the money I gave to Jon (a lady friend-really) enough to cover it? Baby girl has started back to school and there went my schedule. Now I’m trying to figure out timing, take her there, what can I get done before I need to pick her up, what’s for supper, where’s my pencil, did I do that…

Okay, calm down, it will be alright. It will be whatever it will be and I’ll cope with it. Isn’t that what I always say, well maybe not quite like that, but sorta?

One step at a time, one hurdle, another step, another hurdle and still I weigh too much! Well after all weight, like sex, is involved with everything. Right? Crunch, crunch, crunch! Oh sorry that was the sound of-- no not exercise silly, but eating. Do I have y’all convinced at how busy I am? Well I am, so off I go, a lesson is waiting for me to learn it and so on and so forth.

And how are you doing? Yes, of course I still expect you to comment here---like duh!

Haven't played with Excel functions in quite ahile, wondering how old office compares to the newer one.
Sounds like a good idea. My Mom was a book-keeper for awhile. Every company needs one- not everyone cab do it!

Keep up the mind-bending crunching! Good luck!

I haven't been reading all week myself, due to working late every day- got way behind!

Congrats to you -big time -for taking those courses! They can only help you and in so many ways too!
I have worked with Excel before -using it already set up ya know but had never worked with it to set up a spread sheet until my son took a course in it about 10 years ago and brought home an assignment he had one weekend then. He wanted me to help him with it, he said, by doing the typing. However, it turned out he didn't have clue one as to how to determine the code to type in there nor was he the least bit inclined to work with me on that so Mom ended up reading the textbook and figuring out how to do the set-up and typed the damned thing up for him. And then, he had the nerve to be ticked off at me cause there was one little part that I couldn't figure out how to make it function properly! Sheesh! Kids, huh?

Paige, I am the biggest number hater in the world but I have to use Excel for my (real) job every day - I maintain our service contracts and subscriptions, among other things, and I walk away with a headache every day. But these are great skills to have so I try not to complain too much...

My son is doing football right now, so I also understand that kinda thing. As much fun as it is, it can be exhausting! I've been taking a bit of a break from blogging myself - had too, no brain cells left to think!

Good luck and don't stress too much, just have fun!
Hmm, my verify word is a real word - shine. :)

Awesome that you are increasing your brain cells with some classes! I'm not a numbers person. It's a mutual dislike.

I'm fine. Thanks for asking. lol

You are expanding your horizons -- good for you! How's it going?

When I had to do some tax numbers monthly for Jim I was always amazed when they worked out.
