Eating Chocolate and Swearing

Today I am trying to get caught up in one of the mundane tasks that I rather strongly dislike as a business owner. I am preparing my receipts to file my HST report. Of course, because I am a chronic procrastinator, I am behind in these reports. But only by one reporting period (July 1, 2010 - September 30, 2010). In my defense, I am preparing the receipts for the fourth quarter reporting period at the same time, so I may be ahead of the game for once.

In order to get me through it, I have already had two snacks, umpteen cigarettes, a light lunch, and am now into a Godiva chocolate bar that I got for Christmas. I am trying very hard to refrain from swearing and vulgarity, But the words "Go eff a goat" have been muttered under my breath at least once. This is a phrase I picked up from my eldest daughter when she was trying to fill out income tax forms one time. It's sort of a family joke now. (For the record, I actually say "EFF" instead of the f-word. I do have a two year old parrot disguised as a toddler.)

I have spent the better part of two hours sorting through receipts, and am ready to set fire to the whole mess of papers.

At least the apartment might warm up if I did that.

  1. Yes, the apartment might be warmer but your chocolate would melt and think how messy that would be! And what a waste of good chocolate. I am hurrying through my stash of Christmas goodies so I can start the new year with good intentions:) Ha!
    Good luck with the paperwork (yuck!)
