Looking for $139,000

I'm tuckered out after yesterday. My first e-mail sent me into investigation mode to resolve a data entry situation. I had major challenges with the mechanics of an online meeting, and left work with a bear of a headache. Oh, and I need to find $139,000 this morning in order for all to launch successfully by Friday. I miss my three and four year old preschool teaching days. Tommy never looked at a calendar with panic that all his sticks needed to be sorted on the playground by close of business Thursday.We never had to close the block area for four hours, or reboot the large muscle gym climber. And yet, in the big scheme of things my job was every bit, if not more important then. This week will pass; the weekend will refresh the work calendar, and then I'll remember the too low wages, the cranky parents not wanting to hear about their child's  behavior challenges, and trying to respond to twenty different little ones needs at the same time. Tuesday I'll be ready to face a new work year. Today though, I'm in countdown and pressure cooker mode. Anyone see that money lying around?

    1. It is buried in accounting and spread sheet hell. We have found all but $5,024 of it. Guess what my night will be-looking for $5,024. (and violin lessons, pick-up from drivers ed, soccer practice, laundry, dinner, pups walk,and so on)

  2. That would probably be enough to pay off my mortgage given 5hw current US/UK exchange rates x

    1. I wish i had some spare time and funds to travel now to the UK, but I suspect the whole world will be feeling the impact of the EU referendum soon. I plan to hold o to funds and see how things shale out until maybe a new normal emerges.
