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