I want to write today and have wanted to for the past couple of days but ‘doing’ keeps getting in the way of sharing and ‘being’. I’ve been neck-deep in accounting and catch-up mode. You’ll recall that I’ve written about how much had ‘fallen off the desk’ during my time on council, and how much catch-up there was to do. It’s this week that I’m really starting to see the progress that I’ve been working on over the past year.
I can’t begin to tell you how excited I feel to have one of the business’s accounting completely caught up. It’s fired me up to keep going. This one success has given me renewed energy to carry on with the next challenge. With my accountant coaching me every week I’ve been able to tackle and sort some difficult issues. I’m onto the next of the five companies, and making great progress on it. I hope to have it mostly done by the end of the day, it is the easiest of them all. I’ve been in touch with a number of government agencies to sort out some of the government filing issues. Everyone has been so helpful. Communication has been my theme for this season and when I’m feeling anxious I’ve taken the bold step to communicate that anxiety. It’s helping me to not create bigger monsters than necessary.
A goal has formed over this past couple of weeks:
As I leave for vacation at the end of December all my accounting and reporting is up-to-date. Accounting for all four companies can be delivered by the middle of January to the accountant. As I proceed into 2019 I am completely current and will work on the big tasks of bringing all of the debt we’ve incurred, through this past couple of years of growth and struggle, under control.
When I leave this winter I don’t want to take anything with me. Perhaps my winter theme will be creativity … creative writing, and painting and new inspiration. I’d like to refresh my greeting card line and start working on a new one to launch when we move the store. And of course a book is rattling around in my head and it’s coming out in spurts. Tomorrow I will attempt the next piece it will explore four relational types that influence our identities.
It’s nearly official now – Sunworks will move around the corner to the Metropolitan Block in February and March, to be open in April, just in time for Spring. A new tenant is taking over the space we are currently in and we are so very happy to put a new lease in place. Everything should be confirmed by the end of the week.
And … on top of it all, on the tip-top highest point on my head, I had a little fatty cyst under the skin that developed when I ran into a tree branch about four years ago. It looked like I was sprouting a horn. I finally made time to have it removed… now there are three little stitches.
