In Which I Confess My Shame...Part Two

Today I balanced my check register for the first time since October 10, 2008.

Yep. October.

And I don't mean "reconciled to my bank statement." I literally mean I just calculated the balance in my check register.

Yes, I am a CPA. Yes, I have chewed out clients in the past for such irresponsibility.

I could point out that October was when Congress started debating the much-loved TARP bill. I could make a correlation between the government's inability to keep it's own books and mine.

Wes: Hey, where'd all our money go?

Me: (shrug) I dunno. But it really stimulated the economy...I'm sure of that.

But I won't go there.

Unlike our fearless leaders, I will take full personal responsiblity for being a bum.

So, if you are one of my former clients and I ever chewed you out for being loosey-goosey with the check book...my apologies.

Is there a Part III cause this is getting GOOD!

(I could make you feel REALLY good about yourself seeing as how I haven't balanced our checkbook since we've LIVED in Colorado.)
