What You Plan So You Do

A few years ago the responsibility of looking after a bank account, paying a persons bills etc came into my care. 

So to did the comment "Paperwork? What paperwork? I keep it minimalistic!" 

Any paperwork relating to whatever I need would be like a needle in a haystack to find! 

From that point, the world had no bottom. Indeed it had just fallen out. For a few months diligent recording of what went where and how come this matched that, but that did not...

 OH BOY what a mess! 

Added to this shemozzle, the system the main income came through changed the payments. Instead of by-monthly on set dates... the two-week system came in. 

Then a few months later went back to twice a month. Confusing at the best of times. Thus the receipt keeping had to change how everything was physically recorded and stored. 

What part of Autism Spectrum was firing on all fours went haywire. Just as people understand on the Autism Spectrum there is an irrational side of things.  In this case its the fact that book work gets processed - properly.

Thrown in the deep end there have been massive paperwork issues to overcome..... 
  • like where are the back receipts [Oh in the garage! At his house where the place is rented out]
  • paperwork to declutter
  • spreadsheets to create after a sort out of what is needed to record

Concentration was intense. Went for days. Got in the way of other things. Two years later this is an ongoing paper chasing cumulation of facts and figures still going on.


The rest of it meant doing what was being studied. 

What was being actively studied needed gear changes. Click from A into B had groans and frustrations associated. 

  • What was learned was the value of a clear desk. 
  • Finish the job. 
  • Clear the desk. 
  • Not finished writing and not which part you are up to.
  • Add the next job to-do items. 
  • These got the mind back into gear easier than any other way knew. 

  Where you now! 
Thirty receipts are sitting to the left of the computer. On the right though are two binders plus a sheet of paper with numbers. What happened were the envelops that store the paper receipts had got miscued. 

The glitch in the above external a system that impacted the basic system being utilized sure did impact it. 

The streamline process hit a bump. 
Nothing matched up. 

That took all of yesterday afternoon to figure out 
  • What had happened 
  • Why it happened 
  • What to do about it 
Then actively, piece by piece, process everything paperwork to align with online records. 

Now there are only twelve more to do to be up to date on that side of things. 

 Where does this come into traveling adventures? 
When a person takes on something, only to find that simple task just morphed into a ginormous task there are things to do to normalize things. 

 What happened here was to reduce the morphed tried effect into handle-able bite-sized chunks.

On jump at a time

Right smack in the middle of yesterday enough was enough. While totally frustrated, feeling like crying at the repetitive processes...in came emotion.  

Out came "You know what. When all this is running smoothly, done, and up to date.... I am going to the beach!"

Must admit a long time later the realization that the vehicle I would drive down to the beach in would be in the garage getting fixed.

Update to that thought
Hang on when I drive the vehicle to the town the vehicle gets left, maybe there is a bus that goes through, Heads off to the beach. Stay the night enjoy the next day looking around.

Come back by bus and pick up the vehicle. Head home. Say hello to the dogs.

So today the silver lining is there are positive steps to do....
  1. Process these thirty receipts.
  2. Double-check with bank statements the receipts etc already recorded. 
    1. Some things have charges for processing
      1.  record these processing fees
      2. little bits overlooked means my holiday money is altered.
  3. Check bus time tables.
  4. Print the book-keeping workout.
  5. Go through everything all over again 
    1. Manually
What are people doing now
Remember that as this is not your primary online calling there is an easier method to do this.  That method needs finances in order to make processing easier.

This morphed favor needs the cash in the bank to pay for the book-keeping system you don't have, yet require.

All this and really there have been smiles amongst the jumble of great intentions colliding with realism and facts.  

Today, that outlook towards the beach decision is a marvelous stimulant to just get n with the activity.
