got an acceptance letter - my son got bumped up a grade in math, so he'll be doing algebra next year. its great, because he gets to do math that pushes him, while staying for the rest of his classes with his friends. as importantly, he really wanted it and worked very hard to get it. I like it when he has to work hard to achieve something he wants.

Picked up a real nice Paul Smith suit jacket today for $100. It feels a wee bit big, but I'd imagine it'll fit perfect in a month or so (I've been getting bigger since I've gotten back into cycling).

Unfortunately the position is outbound marketing heavy which I don't consider either a personal strength or something that I have a lot of interest in.

full on bigtimer status, yo! congratulations, brah!

day off tomorrow. Planning to sleep in, go sea swimming with some good friends, then eat about 250 grams of lamb liver.

so, I built from scratch a GL for three companies for 2012 that was good enough to pass review by our outside CPA firm. Then I updated our accounting controls and processes and defined new reconciliation procedures between three platforms so they would consolidate properly, prepared for a bank audit and got our credit line renewed and scheduled for a 25% increase later this year. More recently, I added a fourth (completely unreported) company to the consolidated statements, ran a quick list of assets to add to the consolidated balance sheet, and solidified that series of reconciliations. I added new equipment to save time, and brought in competitive bids to ratchet down some entrenched vendors' pricing. I watched the resignation of someone who thought she should have been my boss, hired two new collectors to bring down our 90+ money by 40%, and was interviewing a candidate for senior staff accountant when we all realized that I've now been with the company for 100 days. Not a bad start, I suppose.

Oh, and I sit my third CPA exam in two weeks.

^ I have always hated dealing with AR aging and it fucking infuriates me that the longer someone puts off paying me the less likely I am to get paid.

Nice job!

Good for you Tommy boy icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

You did, however, remind me that next week will mark the start of my third SOX audit in as many years. That belongs in the "pissing me off" thread mad.gif

I never bothered to find out if this is a regulatory requirement or my company just likes to piss away money and its employees off

Oh, and congratulations to your math wiz boy, GT!
