Wednesday I spent most of the day with my friend and fellow decorative painter, Chris Smith, meeting with a designer about a job we’ve been proposing for the past few months. I will go into more detail IF we actually get this job.
I am still fighting a head cold, so am not at my best this week. I decided to scale back the remainder of this week a bit to relieve some stress, rest a little more and work a little less. Today I finally finished my tax prep and was able to sneak into my accountants office without him seeing me, to drop it all off. 🙂
This afternoon, a fair amount of time was spent cleaning up my desk and opening lots of mail. I also put in an S.O.S. call to a friend of mine to see if she might be interested in taking on some of my office work a few hours each month. It has gotten to the point where I feel I spend too much time doing data entry tasks and computer related tasks that someone else could be doing for me. I think my time would be better utilized doing more creative work and this would generate more business as well. I’m feeling stretched in too many directions.
Tomorrow I will return to finish up in the Laundry Room and Back Hall, but still have one more new project to sort out in the Back Hall. If I did not have to spend so much time opening mail and pulling tax info together I would have already sorted out the details of the new project!
