I am very grateful for the fact that I work with my family, it does make a difference. On top of everything we have to do to settle my Dad's estate and clear out his condo, it's tax time! Not my favorite time of year to say the least.
So in the mist of all this there was one day this week I had to laugh. My oldest son had an idea of how we could better use Quickbooks so he was trying to show me. Well My brain just wasn't in the mood to learn any new tricks, yes I am an old dog!
You see at the shop I am it for the office staff. Amy works when she can,but she has the kids and that makes it tough for her. So I do most all of it. I answer the phones, I set the appointments, I do the payroll, I pay the bills. So as an example of what our phone system could sound like......for appointments press 1 for Rebecca....for human resources press 2 for Rebecca....for accounts payable press 3 for Rebecca....for accounts receivable press 4 for Rebecca.......for complaints press 5 for Will...hahaha well that part I will pass on!
On this particular day Amy had just arrived and so had my youngest son Jason (right). Well before I knew it everyone was in my little office trying so hard to teach this hard old brain of mine with new ideas. Nope just wasn't the best day for it!
Soon I was on verge of screaming when Amy handed me a tootsie roll sucker and we decided to capture this tender moment of me and my little boys. They are a couple of goof balls and thank goodness for it because it does help to laugh, especially at times when you don't think you can.
I also wanted to totally veer off topic here and share a couple of photos with my grandsons during the plays they performed in last December. I had intended on writing about the holidays and the fun things we did, but all that changed on December 28th.
