wombat

work work work

Today was another long slog of wading through checks, general ledger entries, and taking care of things I didn't know enough to do back in May when everything seemed pretty slack. Also, getting my head around the way some of the systems work, which will be an ongoing process until I reach the point where the senior controller retires and I can put all this shit on QuickBooks or Peachtree because I finally understand it and don't need to write everything down in six places with 10-key tapes attached. Maybe in another few years.

Picked up a 3-liter bottle of water at Walmart yesterday and am starting to hit on that at my desk instead of indulging in a super-sized Diet Coke from McD's after breakfast and another bottle with/after lunch. The water is better for me than my caffeinated pop of choice, and it already seems to be having a positive effect on my blood sugar. In related news, the complex pools are open but I haven't used them since my trunks went astray sometime in the last nine months and the new ones haven't arrived yet.
