Five Down, Seven to Go
September 23, 2010 § 1 Comment
First things first. Brad audited me this month. Here’s how it went down:
Hadley (happily slurping soup): So, this is the first month I exceeded the income I used to make!
Brad: I don’t think so.
Hadley: Yes! I have a spreadsheet!
Brad: Then your spreadsheet isn’t right because… (insert intelligent rationale here)
He was so obviously and clearly right. If I would have just thought about it for two seconds, I could have spared the drama of being disappointed for no reason. But I did not. And if you are highly astute, you will notice that my red bar has been adjusted for this and all prior/future months, which makes my income look worse. But at least I’m not a liar anymore.
Luckily, my income continues to climb and that’s great news.
My other indices are looking good too!
And, a few things I am particularly proud of:
- Adding Target to my list of clients
- Making the best of it at the Creative Connection (where we handed out at least 300 Commemorate the Date brochures despite horrific attendance)
- Celebrating four years of marriage to Brad
- Transitioning Hike to the toddler room at school, buying him big-boy shoes and letting him fall on his face because, “he needs to learn to make mistakes.” (Note to self: learn how to do this without having a conniption.)
