Did I mention how much I love my hubby? I'm so glad he loves being self-employed. He's very happy with what he does, and that makes this Grandy a happy mama. Hubby works very hard as a truck driver. A couple weeks back I went with him for a day.
Yep! You guessed it! Grandy was a Mother Trucker for a day.
I don't know how these people do it? It's pretty hard work!! That, and I have to be appreciative when I'm driving on a weekend and see all these trucks still on the road. Hubby doesn't have to drive on weekends. We get to reserve those days for family fun time. For that, I feel truly blessed.
What has Grandy
When we sat with our tax person (because did I mention Grandy has a full time job and it's NOT as an accountant?) dear Hubby took it all in stride. Every year our accountant fears for my blood pressure as she gets such a kick out of our dialogue.
"Well Grandys, you owe $XXXXX this year." - She says cringing but looking only at hubby.
Hubby - "Really? Hey! That's not as bad as I thought!!"
Grandy - "Seriously?"
Hubby - "What, we kept good records this year."
Grandy - "Who the hell is WE?"
Hubby - "I know honey, I did a good job with the receipts...You're Welcome!"
Grandy - "Could I just have a moment here? I don't think I'm breathing yet."
Hubby - "What are you worried about honey? I know (Friend X) has to pay more than that."
Grandy - "So...does he contribute to OUR bottom line?"
Hubby - "Nope...but his bottom line's not as cute as yours."
Grandy - "You win."
He's so lucky he makes me smile. It took me TWO WEEKS to go through all the invoices and receipts he "collected" throughout the year, sort them, and key them onto the spreadsheet to make sure we had as much as we could.
Well...I return to work on Thursday. It's been officially 6 weeks since my surgery.
Somehow the song stuck in my head has never been more true...
"I Owe, I Owe, So off to work I Go!"
