Business

Doing this year’s taxes has made me realize that as my business develops, I will need to keep track of expenses including insurance, vehicle mileage, equipment, books, etc.

Working on the closets

Organized and cleaned the closet under the stairs before Christmas. Now, I am working on my clothes closet, bookcase and craft drawers. I don’t feel like I can tackle the entirety of any of these 3, but can definitely make some progress.

Tonight I spent about 1/2 hour. Closet is neater but only slightly less full. Got rid of lots of solo socks. About a half dozen books came off the shelf, and pulled a camera and high school dissection kit out of the craft drawer. Will take some thought to decide how to get rid of the camera; cost a lot when I bought it “used” back in the day, but a quick look on eBay tells me they’re almost worthless today. ... Good lesson there!

Corollary goals:
- Make a donation of items to Good Will, keeping track of all donated items for next year’s taxes.
- Organize the photos that had been stashed under the stairs.

Taxes in prep for FAFSA

My notion has been that in the process of doing my 2012 taxes (in progress, just waiting for a couple more statements) and then doing the FAFSA for C.L., I will come a long way toward accomplishing this goal. Fact is, however, that it won’t be “permanent.” Financial stuff requires maintenance. I hate that. Ug.

September 8th Gratitudes...

1. I’m grateful for D’s call and his report of fun sightseeing.
2. I’m grateful C and her bandmates chose to practice this afternoon, and that they have so much fun with it.
3. I’m grateful for R and the inspiration he offers so many young people.
4. I feel very grateful for my work today … How fortunate I am to work where I do and with so many good folks.
5. I am grateful for having spent an entire work day in the woods… though there might be more enjoyable things to do than remove strangers’ abandoned trash…



nourish myself daily with a healthful vegetarian diet and eat mindfully (read all 7 entries…)
This comes naturally to me.

But I frequently find myself derailed by D’s well-intentioned cooking. I feel obligated to eat what he’s made, even though it’s not what I really wanted.

So,even though it may sound a bit callous, I must admit that I am enjoying the ease I feel about food when he is away. C will eat whatever I make, so there is no stress there.

I guess this realization should provide me with motivation to reframe this goal by tagging on the following modifier: ”...even when I feel pressure to do otherwise.”

9/7/2011 Gratitudes:

Today I am grateful for the lovely late summer weather … and even for the subtle scent of autumn creeping in.

I am grateful for C’s cheerfulness and positive attitude. So far, so good.

I am grateful for D’s safe travel today.

I am grateful for GF’s amazing personality and meaningful insights, both conveyed through his podcasts. I am especially grateful that D also recognizes GF’s wisdom; it is nice to share this. I would like to meet this incredible soul one day!

I am grateful for the quiet time that is here, now.
