04/15/2005: "STILL AWAKE!"
It's 6:00am and I'm still awake...I really have stayed up all night doing my taxes...I think I really made a mess of them too, I kept switching figures around to and fro. I'm very relieved that I'm taking them to a professional, although I *may* have led the accountant to believe that he'd only have to double check my figures and it will probably be much more time consuming than that.
Not to mention the fact that I didn't get around to even starting my 2003 return. I just shoved all the documents into some envelopes. This guy is going to hate me. I *really* am serious about being a better business woman I just don't know what the hell I'm doing.
I have to chair a faculty senate sub-committee meeting at 10:30 and then I have a 3 hour curriculum committee meeting after that! argh...so sleepy sooo sooooooo sleepy. I can't go to sleep now, I'll never get up again, and I promised the tax man I'd get him this mess by 8:00am.
After doing my taxes I'm starting to have some *serious* doubts that I will *ever* get to the point where I can make a living at this. It seems I put every spare moment outside my day job into it and I have practically nothing to show for all my slaving away.
