Now I know the title is a bit misleading. I have not reconciled with anyone, there is really no one to reconcile with.
Oh, there is one person I am SO done with. A disrespectful blight on the earth.
But that's another story.
I am on pretty good terms with everyone I know.
The reconciliation is a MONTHLY duty, with Quick Books, the accounting program I use to keep my business on track.
I think they called it QUICK Books because they had a sick sense of humor.
Anyway, once a month, I have to balance it all out. Twice. Once for my Paypal account, and once for my bank account.
Now the Paypal account can be a few dollars off, I am not a stickler about that.
But my bank account has to balance, preferably to the penny.
Some months are easier than others. Some months just stink.
But I am nothing if not determined.
I have been working on May's reconciliation for four days, on and off. I work on it for awhile, leave it, go back, work some more.
I don't let myself get too crazily annoyed, I walk away if I feel myself getting that way.Then I do something else, and go back at it fresh.
Today, day four, but who's counting, I got it down to a $99 difference. Now that figure did not come up anywhere....so how could that be?
Out loud, I said....they are JUST numbers, that's all. They HAVE to add up. It's factual. There is no reason for this NOT to work.
Finally, after staring at the screen, and the lists of deposits, and checks, for what seemed like hours, I saw a $1.00 error, which led me to believe that I had taken out $100.00 at some point, from the ATM, arriving at $99.
And there it was.
Why don't balloons explode out of the top of my computer when I get it??
That's what I want to know.
So, at last, I am reconciled.
In between, I hung out some bleached loopers to dry.
I had to empty some containers so I can dye fabric tomorrow.
It looks like it will be a 'good day to dye'.
Sorry, I couldn't resist.
Last week, L and I wove the 5x7 sock rug for an order, and these are the two rugs we wove for the shop.
Wild pink and purple, with some lime and turquoise thrown in.
Purple, turquoise and lime green.
And now for the giveaway........
I am going to use the random number picker......so you don't have to name anything this time.
The giveaway is a Hip to Be Square Rag Rug Kit.
Kit consists of the 9" square looper loom, two hooks, directions, and enough loopers to make a 2'x3' rag rug.
Or you could just make a whole bunch of potholders from this kit, instead of a rug. It's your choice.
You know you're gonna love it, and if you don't, it makes a great gift!!!!
All you have to do is be a follower, and comment, but please, leave your name or email address or something so I can contact you if you win.
I will draw the number on Saturday night, June 17th, around 6pm. The winner will be announced then.
Just one thing....if you don't live in the continental US, you can still win, but you will have to pay shipping.
Coming up tomorrow, a big dye mess. I will try to take pictures. Stay tuned.
