It's Official!

It is time to par-tay! As of 5:00 pm today, I can now say I've survived another tax season! Woo and double hoo!!! All corporate returns are now signed, sealed and delivered while all personal tax information has been compiled and forwarded to the tax accountant. I actually pulled this one off without logging too many overtime hours...a nice change from years past. I feel a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Guess you can say I take my job a little too seriously. lol!

Enough of my professional life...time for a little personal update. Hours upon hours are being spent at the gym and I'm loving every minute. I must confess, my swimming skills aren't really improving. The main reason...I haven't been in the pool. Can't hardly learn to swim on dry land, now can you? lol! My primary focus has been on running the past 3 weeks. I've never been a runner but have always wanted to be. I figure it's now or never. Besides, new friends have encouraged me to run a few races this summer. In all honesty, it didn't take much encouragement from them to get me to tackle this challenge. As of now, I'm logging my miles on the treadmill while I wait for the weather to improve. The extra hour of daylight will help when I finally move to the great outdoors. Can't wait!

On the relationship front...hmmm, what word should I use? How about interesting? Yes, very interesting. As one friend put it, you must kiss a hundred frogs to find your prince. Let's just say I'm well on my way to working through the hundred frogs. lol! As of late, there are a few strong possibilities for Prince Charming. In fact, I'm very excited about a date I have this week. Keep your fingers crossed that he is truly a prince and not another frog in disguise.

Other randomness...I'm working on a major career advancement goal. I am at a crossroads with two major options pulling at me. I'll offer up more details when I am more clear on which path I plan to take. I'm nervous but equally excited.

So there you have it. The abbreviated verson of the past few months of my life. Amazing how easy it is to wrap up my world in a few sentences. :-) How about you? What's going on in your world? Do tell...



  1. YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY for getting tax season off your plate!! that is awesome!!! and *fingers crossed* for your prince tomorrow night! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. Hey Girly!!! Had to come by and catch up :) Praying for everything in the works!

  3. Yay so Happy the tax season is over for you!!!!

    Sounds like you are doing great and YAY for the running!! We were just out the other night scoping new treadmills!!!

    You have to ring me...with all the details..Miss you!!!

  4. Lisa,

    Congrats on getting through your tax season!!! I'm wading through my personal ones right now and its just so not fun!

    My fingers are crossed! Hope your date goes well and some of those frogs find other ponds to play in. :>

    Me?? Well, I wouldn't mind an extra couple of hours in the day.........I would split them between some time to get creative and...well...quite honnestly, some sleep!! I'm feeling rather short on both those fronts these days. But, my own fingers are crossed that I can get through my paperwork and get some of both of those fine things back in! :>

    So fun to see you posting again and I'm glad that hefty weight has been lifted!


  5. Yay!!! I know all about that corporate tax stress, my hubby goes through it every year. And its over for him too, yippee!! Of course this new job of his (been there a year now) is way less stressful than the last 18 years of his accounting career. He used to work weeks and weeks with no break till 9 or 10 every night till the 15th!
    Not much else going on in my world except the ongoing search for a job. When you work you always look forward to those days off, vacations, holidays, etc. but I never thought I would say that I loathe getting up every morning to do what? Oh there are things to do around the house and there's always the scrapping, but its not the same as having to go to the office and interact with other adult beings. I really miss that. The tv and a dog just doesn't measure up! LOL!! Hopefully one day soon....
    Take it easy now and relax, oh and have a great time on your date!!! Can't wait to hear about it!

  6. Well, I have a great deal going on right now on my blog for Canadian who want to purchase and get 20% off on all crafts good. I also was out with the girls last night, crafting, sharing technics. I also brought a cherry pie. Got home close to midnight, which I rarely do! Had a great time. I off to a conference this afternoon, for women only. Should be fun.
    Have a great week Lisa! Can't wait to see what choice you make for your career! hugs :-)

  7. WOW girl, you tire me out just reading!! Seriously I need to hit the gym...(Bad word he-he) I feel the same way you season over corporate taxes filed yesterday whoooo ray!!!! I hope your date works out and if he has a know lol!!!! Hugs, Char

  8. So glad you've come through the tunnel & out the other side!! Life certainly sounds 'Full' at your end! Enjoy sorting through those frogs...& especially enjoy THAT date this week!!

    So...will we be 'seeing' more of you now?...Or will your chosen 'new route' take you away from us again? Do hope not!! {{Hugs}} xx

  9. yeah, another tax season behind that feels good. I'm a TERRIBLE swimmer. I can just barely keep myself from sinking!

    I'll bet you have your pick of men, but I agree that a good one is hard to find.
