Sermon Sunday

Taxes! Ugh-Just finished 2008! Yippy Skippy!

OK, one thing about me. I despise busy numbers & paper work-ugh!
It's not that I owe a ton of money-I just don’t like doing it! I think I'd rather give birth! So last April I filed for a 6 month extension, which was today. All week I was avoiding the piles starring at me. I was pretending to be busy in my space, but found myself sorting and shining my jewelry, writing songs on my guitar, reading blogs...until yesterday when the clock was about to turn me into a pumpkin! My dear sweet tolerant, frustrated daughter helped me and I got through it. Heather is VERY good at organizing and paperwork. So she created this form for entering all my info. I read it off as she entered each item into the correct category. I think it is in excell-and it totaled everything. SO I am entering everything I have for 2009 this month so I don't agonized over this anymore. I'd love to have a conference call with all of you about taxes and share this spread sheet with anyone interested. Lets make a master list of all the things we can and cannot write off to share with all of you. Being self employed is very complicated when it comes to taxes. SO-who is interested???? By the way-I use Liberty Tax service and have for 3 years now. Everyone there I have encountered have been extra nice and patient with me! So bring on 2010, I'm ready!

My FIRST DOTS card-My Anniversary month with CTMH

I found the first card I stamped at the first gathering I was invited to back in the late summer of 1991. I signed the "DOTTED" line and became a demonstrator in October of 1991. I am now celebrating my 18 year anniversary with this wonderful company!!!
Thanks Jeanette!

Sermon Sunday

“So many people along the way, whatever it is you aspire to do, will tell you it can’t be done. But all it takes is imagination. You dream. You plan. You reach. There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, with belief, with confidence and trust in yourself and those around you there are no limits.” Michael Phelps, 8 - Gold Medal Winner 2008 Summer Olympics
