Seeing Things, Hearing Things

Trying desperately to get the financial reports done for year-end at the place-where-I-worship. Did I mention they were due Jan. 15th? Things are not going well.

I can't seem to get the numbers to add up to the numbers I added up the last time I looked at the books. Clear? Yeah, I thought so. I don't understand where some of my totals came from {dear God, if I can't figure it out, we are in ter-ubble!} & I'm not getting the same totals today that I got last week. I'm thinking I'm going to have to scrap it all & start all over ... from Jan. 1st, 2008!

Oy Vey!

All I see when I blink my eyes is this:

& this damn song keeps running through me head.

Wine, anyone? Or should I say, whine?
I barely balance my own chequebook ~ I can't believe they put me in charge of this. It's... well, it's madness, I tells ya!

that is a strange thing to volunteer your time for.

i always wondered, in my church going days of youth, why anyone would volunteer to take care of all the collection plates. then I realized that they get to skip the sermon to count money. Money they couldn't keep, however.

good luck.

ah, Pamplemousse, we count the money after so there's no skipping any sermons here!
