Quick update

October 24th, 2006 at 03:18 pm

Our dog Missy had to go to the vet for minor surgery yesterday. She had a small growth on her gum that was pushing out one of her teeth, and her teeth also needed to be cleaned. $450 and two pulled teeth later, she's just fine. She was sleepy last night from the medicine, but this morning she was back to her old self.

Another monkey rench in the budget is my DH's co-workers wedding. It's Nov. 4 and it's just far enough away that we need a hotel (especially since we'll both be drinking) plus the cost of the gift. We'll have fun, but it will run about $200 between the gift and the room. Oh, and I need to find something to wear, I might have to buy a dress...all my "dress up" clothes are either too big or too small, or are too formal. At least I'll get future use out of a new dress.

I guess DH better keep working that overtime!

    Hey - just answering your question. YEs I would recommend becoming a bookkeeper while you finish college. Maybe take some accounting classes first. I did some bookkeeping my last year of college and I overall found it a great experience to learn things on the micro level.

    Oh - I see you have bookeeper training at cc - even better. Most of my friends in college had ended up as bookeepers and just wanted to take it further so went back to school to get an accounting degree and a CPA license. I think that is a great idea. Go for it. I know the firms are out there are desparate, but having bookeeping experience just puts you a step ahead and you may meet more CPAs as well. As you will most likely work under a CPA or be in close contact with a CPA that the company hires to do taxes, etc. my first bookkeeping job I Was hired by a CPA to do all the grunt work while she did all the taxes and complicated stuff. Now I just do everything from the books to the taxes, etc., for many different clients. Much more interesting! & it pays a lot better. Wink Send me a note if you have further questions.
