Getting ready to go again

It's Monday night and on Wednesday afternoon I'll be on a plane to Texas to pick up my truck and cruise along the Gulf Coast toward Key West. I've been five weeks as of tomorrow away from my home and trying to get my house on the market. It will be officially for sale about the time I'm over Colorado. I can't wait to get back--still there is so much to get done.

The truth is that my work here is about done. Nothing of mine is still in the house except what I'll be packing back with me. But there is the final moving of stuff out of the house, putting out stuff for the charity truck, another dump run. And taxes.

I'm trying to put together the Elder Road taxes this evening and that involves entering the past three months' accounting data. I guess I don't do too well a that. It is made more difficult by Lightning Source. They've become harder to work with over the past three years. They still don't have my imprint correct, though at least my checks are coming to the right place finally. Trying to match up their AP statements, Sales Comp statements, and Check remittance statements is a pain in the ass. Half the time the numbers don't make sense. Customer service is a thing of the past. There are so many bills for listing in various catalogs that should just be part of their service. I am slowly moving my books out of LSI and over to CreateSpace--something I never thought I'd do.

Then, if my wife ever finishes reviewing the papers, we need to file our separation. At the same time, I need to give her power of attorney to close on the house without me being here. Is that screwed up backward or what? Well, it makes no difference. With luck, we'll have a gazillion offers and someone will pay us more than it's worth by next weekend. That's the way it's supposed to work, right?
