Accounting, David Garrett and more

Bookkeeping

Made it through the week and am really glad it's Sunday today. Was a six-day week, which won't be all that uncommon for the immediate future most likely. This was week 1 of taking over some of the accounting duties from another department. All in all things went sort of ok I guess. And by that I mean everything got done one way or another and I don't think too many mistakes happened. Was it enjoyable? Well that's a different question altogether entirely of course. 

We will just have to see how things go. I am getting a better grasp of the job myself which is good. So I can now train some of my employees so they can be in charge when I am in Virginia in September to meet up with my parents. Only 3 more weeks to go. And of course we also have the school start-up, Labor Day and Rosh Hashanah mixed in there as well. Never a dull moment I can assure you. :) 

Still have not figured out how to get an urine sample from Ollie either. I'll need to try a couple more things. Really don't want to drop him off at the vet for the whole day. A) he would hate that and B) I am sure it wouldn't be cheap. He sort of eats the dry food they gave me but only as an additional snack, not as his main meal. So I'll need to see what else they have that he might like better. 

In more fun news I purchased tickets for the David Garrett concert in March next year. His US tour will take place in January (West Coast) and March (East Coast). Right now the local PBS stations are doing a pre-sale of sorts letting you pledge a certain amount and giving you tickets in return. I got mine from CPBN (Connecticut Public Broadcasting Network) and spent $150 on two orchestra tickets. Not super cheap but I figure at least the money is going to a good place/organization. They also had Meet-And-Greet tickets and I was super tempted but those were $260 for one ticket (including a reception, meet-and-greet, a DVD and the concert). That would've been $520 for the two of us. That's just too much, sorry. And yes PBS is a good organization but I also like to support the artist and I am sure he does not see very much of that money at all. Plus I can also imagine how much he must hate those kinds of events; having to awkwardly shake hands and make conversation with people he has never met before but are enthralled with him. 

Today we are taking it easy. Are going to have lunch in Oxford at 121, then going to stop at the store later to pick up some cheese & crackers to watch the MTV Music Awards. 

Mail Update: Received letters/still owe a response to: Eunice/Malta, Jessica/DE, Nina/WA and Charles/TN.
