We do our bookkeeping to know the truth

| February 07, 2012

Bookkeeping today consisted of minor hole filling. We had about 1,400 financial transactions in 2011. One of them was for an unusual amount for food purchased at a truck stop a few months ago. It took some head scratching and memory jogging to remember the information I failed to note on the receipt when the expense was incurred. The spreadsheet hole was filled when we remembered that I bought breakfast for a group of drivers I visited with that morning. Another hole was a date improperly entered. Something seemed to be purchased in a town on a date when we were not there. Again, it took some head scratching and memory jogging to get the date right.

Bookkeeping still isn’t fun, but it is nice this year to not be behind.
