    The Day I Became a Professional Sandwich Maker
    Were you an overconfident child? From a very early age, I insisted on doing things myself. Problem was, I was almost always rubbish at them. At age 4, I would proudly brush my own teeth only to have my mother re-brush them because I usually forgot to use toothpaste. It seems my confidence was inflated even as a child. One thing I always did myself was make ... more

    The Right Tool for the Job
    When I bought my first house, I was a single female and had been apartment-living for the better part of 25 years. One of the first pieces of advice I received was, you need to get yourself an electric drill, a good set of screwdrivers, a hammer, a wrench, and pliers . Actually, I believe I was told, tools are a girl’s best friend. I’m unsure if the tools I ... more

    Change is good
    Ah, to be young again. When I graduated from college many, many years ago, I started a trend in my life that has since gone away. The trend was that every few years (2 to 5) I would move. It worked out so beautifully because every time I moved, I cleaned out the old stuff I’d collected. Mobile de-cluttering, I called it. Change was a good thing. It meant I ... more

    Something(s) to Think About
    Have you ever wondered why you have to add a project to the distribution of an invoice when doing data entry? It’s all about the Fund setup . If you’ve defined your funds to require projects on Income Statement accounts during transaction entry, you need to associate a project ID on every invoice, because the invoice debits an expense account (or a few). Do ... more

    Multi-Tools Are Multi-Cool
    I wouldn’t say I’m a minimalist, but I am certainly someone who does not enjoy clutter. However, I do have a large collection of stationery tools—pencils, markers, pens, and many, many notebooks. I own more fountain pen ink than I could use in three lifetimes. I know I should stop, but I don’t think I can stop anytime soon. And who would want to? Especially ... more

    Skipping Past that Broken Record
    I’ll be honest … I was, without a doubt, a challenging child. There are countless stories in my family of the terror I inflicted on my parents and siblings. Myriad tales involve bubble gum. I apparently had a bad habit of sticking chewing gum all around the house and in the hair of my brother. To this day, he still gets nervous whenever I take out the Juicy ... more

    I’ll be back … for knowledge
    As I do frequently, I went down the rabbit hole of esoteric web-searching this past weekend. I’m sure you know what that’s like. It’s where an innocent search for types of bread somehow leads to becoming an expert on 14th-century woodworking. For me, the deluge starts with a spark of something from a movie or show I’m watching and then can lead to something ... more

    Remember the Quicken?
    I remember, way back in the dark ages, the first “personal computer” software I ever used was Quicken. Quicken 1.0, to be quite honest. I was dating a computer programmer at the time and he bought a TRS-80. He got Quicken 1.0 (or whatever the very first version was called) and we used it to manage our bill paying. Personal computers and any form of ... more

    Making Hay of My Gardening Failures
    Like most of you, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands over the past month. At first, that time was spent catching up on my favorite television shows, and mindlessly scrolling on my phone—super important stuff. But lately, I’ve been filling my time with something that’s actually productive … I’ve taken up gardening . I have never had a green thumb. I should ... more

    Building Focus
    I’ve been accused (more than once) of lacking focus in my life. It’s probably true because while I have certain things I love to do, I can quickly be distracted from a task and drawn to another seemingly unrelated task all at a moment’s notice. Focus-shifting is an art form I’ve perfected. It may be a bad character trait in some scenarios but being able to ... more
