So now that my hubby and I have grown up to become "a couple of a certain age", it's time to quit playing around and take on some grown up responsible habits, and we figured the beginning of 2011 was the perfect time for it. Over the years we've saved little dribs of money here, and little drabs there ~ Not that we are rich by any stretch of the imagination! ~ but we thought it was time to organize the dribs and drabs, and tomorrow we are meeting with a financial adviser. Thus, the only thing I've created in the last few days is the pile pictured above. I've been wallowing in 1040s and Schedule Cs, Inventory and Prospectus', Insurance Policies and Pension Plans...but I have been able to organize and make sense of all this mess, and get our taxes ready for filing, so that's a good thing :)
I also wanted to mention the voting is up for Challenge 2 of Project Quilting. My Laurel Quilt, pictured above is my humble entry this week. You can see all of this week's fabulous entries and vote for your favorite, and leave a comment there for more give aways!
And, My Chutes and Ladders kits (pattern found in Quilt Almanac 2011) are selling fast, so don't miss out on the kit in this beautiful Oasis fabric collection!
...Now, I'll get back to finishing up the finances and math stuff. After the financial advisor, we're going to be really grown up and get our Will done ~ who knows what kind of give away I'll have for that :)
Enjoy the day!
