Smitten with Him

grown-up stuff happens here sometimes

This is How My Month-End Friday Started *sigh*

Hello *Smitten*,

I hope to have our final Zillow and Tulia Invoices tomorrow.

I have been reviewing our budget and expense statements.  I have a couple of questions.  I hope that you can help provide a little more clarity:

Can you provide a detailed ledger for the Atlanta expenses for the period of January 2013 to August 2014?  This would be a great help.

Thanks,

On the very last fucking day of the month, while I am still waiting on crucial paperwork from her, she has the balls to ask me for 20 months worth of itemized expenses?!?!? WTF? Are you serious?

My response:

Good morning, *branch manager*

Attached is the General Ledger detail for all of **your branch’s** expenses from 1/1/2013 until 6/30/2014 (FYI – it was 106 pages). This is what has been made available to me – July’s final numbers have not been provided yet.

As you know, today is the last day of the month and I do not have time to itemize every expense. After you have reviewed the attached detail, if you have specific questions about any of the entries, let me know. I am not the only person making entries to your General Ledger and some of the questions you have may need to go back to the CFO. I need to know very specifically what you are looking for and why if I am to go to our CFO asking for 18-20 months’ worth of information.

I am resending you the email I sent last month with your June financial statement (which is the last one made available to me). Every month, after the final posted numbers are sent to me, I send *your branch’s* financial statement to you, your assistant and our managing broker. In the body of that email I ask that you please review it and contact me with any questions or concerns. Going forward, it may be more prudent to review the financial statements in a timely manner and get back to me with any problems or questions you might have as soon as you have them. It is much easier to remember an entry made a month ago, as opposed to over a year ago.

Your help is greatly appreciated
*Smitten*

AAARGH!!!

Happy Friday?

Loverman Withdrawal

We had such an amazing night last night. The last couple of days have been crazy and Tuesday night did not go as I had planned 😦 but last night was wonderful! It’s like, even though he’s having a really crappy life right now, he’s still trying to make sure that things still go well and that we’re still having fun. I never wanted to tell him “I love you” more than I did this morning.

But our very short morning together was cut even shorter because I had to drop Loverman off somewhere completely different than usual. After dropping him off, it added another 15-30 minutes onto my already-50-minute commute, which took away pretty much all of our cuddle time!

And, as a result I am feeling an incredible amount of Loverman withdrawal this morning.

This week has been a torrential ‘thrill’ of emotion and I am very proud of how composed I have been for all the things that didn’t work out as I had planned wanted. But in times of crisis I seem to have more strength/pluck. I don’t understand why it’s easier to put feelings aside at some times rather than others…

I have a lot to say, but I don’t have any time to say it right now. It’s month-end at work and I have to get all that done, plus Loverman was just evicted and there is a lot of time and bullshit that goes into that.

I hope that I can keep it all in my memory bank until I have more time (I hope) to write it here this weekend.
