Fiscal, Financial, Federal...there's probably one more "F" word I could add here...
Any one else feeling the end-of-fiscal-year crunch right about now? I haven't posted much of late as I've had some time spent in all day trainings at I'm also trying to get all my notes, stats, logs and whatnot done in time for the end of fiscal.
Money pressures are everywhere at the moment. When our final numbers are tallied soon, we'll find out if we (my program at work) made quota in order to maintain our current funding.
My taxes are all prepared, but I have yet to take that depressing step of actually submitting them (we owe this year due to my partners self-employment income).
And the big one of course is that both the Ontario and Federal budgets came down this week. Like a hammer, each one. I'm hoping to get a better look at them in the days to come.
Once I've done all this, I'm also going to go roll all my pennies to deposit in the bank before stores won't take them any more. My old peanut butter jar is going to seem so empty from now on...*
*for those of you out of the loop, one of the federal budget items everyone is talking about is that the Conservative government has announced the end of the 1 cent coin in Canada. No more "take a penny, leave a penny" in the Great White North.
