Follow up to this post: Venting.

The auditor was pleased with the reports, even though there was some weird stuff due to changing treasurers in February. The other members of the executive were pleased with the reports. The members were pleased with the reports, especially those members who have some comprehension of accounting.

I was voted treasurer, instead of vice president. Since I wasn't collecting the money today, I covered my bum. Today members were paying for the luncheon and some were paying for membership renewal and some were paying for the Mortens Goose supper we are having on the 24th. I brought my little Neat Scanner and scanned all the cheques we received. Only two of the cheques didn't have adequate memos and I will phone or email those members before they forget what they were paying for.

It's not that I think anyone is trying to steal or scam anything. Stephen Covey said that there are two components to trust: character and competence. These cheques may be deposited before everything is turned over to me and I want to know what they were for without having to guess. I'm fairly sure that one of the bank deposits from last year had a cheque listed with the wrong amount. I will be scanning the cheques every month so I can make sure that I don't make that kind of mistake or if I do, I can figure out that I did.

Thank you Babe
Just wish they would leave me out of it but I've got the kinda family that forces you to choose between them and if not they'll get angry with me.
My life is like a B movie!

I finally handled this type of situation in my family by deciding it was not MY problem, it was theirs. If they wanted to be angry, there was nothing I could do about it. I am not responsible for their happiness, only mine and Shrek's. You know, I feel so much better about most things, because I don't let their attitudes effect me.

I am sure it will in the end. But this latest setback just prolongs the surgery on my right eye. Right now I have to walk around with my left eye closed. Evidently the surgery was successful. I can see without my glasses clearly in my left eye. But I still need my glasses for my right eye and the left lens is too strong and makes my left eye hurt. Did any of that make sense?

I just noticed something. This morning my eyeball was swollen and sore if I touched my eyelid. I just went to gently rub my left eye and the eyeball has gone down and is no longer sore. There is hope on the horizon. Maybe by the time I see the surgeon next Wednesday, she will tell me she is ready to do the right eye. I just get so frustrated so easily.

Addie, have Spike remove the left lens of your glasses.
