I got a lot accomplished this week.
I did some solid work on my consulting business (ParJen Consulting) and am working hard to build my client base again. I let it dwindle when I took on my latest full time job as the challenges of the new position were pretty overwhelming and needed my full attention. However, now that I'm settled into the role and have a handle on managing things I have more time off hours to devote to consulting again.
I got our financial records closed out for 2007 and up to date through the end of Jan 2008. We use Microsoft Money for financial management and I really feel good when everything is organized and we have a clear picture of our financial outlook.
I filed our state and federal taxes. We have a hefty refund coming back this year. This was due to the fact that 2007 was my first full year at my current job and I didn't do a good enough job at estimating what our final taxes due were going to be and had too much withheld. We will adjust our w2 forms this month so that we do not get a refund next year. We are not keen on the federal government holding our income interest free for a year.
I answered all my emails.
Since the house is clean [see my post on fire update] we really have nothing left to do this weekend except relax.
I am feeling good.
