A Dent...

Have you recovered from hearing I had almost 31,000 e-mails sitting in my Hotmail Inbox, the account I only use for Facebook (FB)?

If you read yesterday's entry, you'll know that after several hours of work, and after I just couldn't look at another list of messages, I ended the day with about 18,000 e-mails still waiting to be sorted through!

Monday was a rather busy day for me, even if I didn't leave my home.  It was a work from home day!

In addition to getting back in the swing of working at home, after being ill for a couple of weeks, I had to begin sorting through receipts, etc.  Yup!  It was time to do bookkeeping, once again!

Most Realtors can just do this once per year, in time to file their income tax returns and GST/HST.  Not me!  Long before I began selling real estate, I was a Retailer.  My tax had to be remitted, quarterly. 

This meant that I had to remit tax and info every three (3) months.  For two (2) years, I was both a Realtor and a Retailer.  So, the three (3) month window remained in place.

Then, I sold my ladies' wear business and requested being transferred to the annual programme that almost all Realtors participate in, but was refused.

Consequently, every three (3) months, I must sort receipts, do my bookkeeping and file/remit for HST.

Oh the fun!

In the evening, after finished working, I tackled the Hotmail Inbox problem, once again.  Be still my heart!

The good news is I was able to watch some television and take my time, while subjecting myself to the horror of sorting through e-mail!

I watched The Bachelor.  Then, the news and some of The Tonight Show.  At midnight, I watched a movie that I had partly seen, before. 'Til There Was You.

For some reason, I had missed the last 20 minutes or so of 'Til There Was You, when I saw it the first (1st) time.  This meant I missed the best part!  When I saw it was to be once again aired on television, I was really happy!

This movie was the one made in 1997, not the one of a similar title Till There Was You, made many years earlier.  Confused?  I was, at first, too!

Even though I was still working on the nightmare of my Hotmail Inbox dilemma, I was so happy to be able to see the whole movie, this time!

If you get a chance to see it, do so.  I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Oh, and yes, I did make a dent into the about 18,000 e-mail in my Inbox.  When I finally shut down, the number remaining there is about 15,000.

Lord, help me, please!

Until next time...
