leaves of sass: begin

what if . . . is one of my favorite motivational tools. when i’m having a fog-covered, moving-at-the-speed-of-cold-molasses day, i play “what if” with myself and first thing you know, i’m perking again. it’s a little bait-and-switch trick i learned/taught myself as a child.

and it still works like a charm. (used it quite effectively just yesterday and again today, as you’ll see . . .)

jude plays a mean game of what if. acey does, too. so does paula, and judith, and cathie.

so today i got to thinking . . .
what if i join in and play with jude, too?
what if i do something i seldom-if-ever do and detour from my current project, setting it aside before it”s finished?
what if i take a placemat that just happens to be shaped like a leaf and use it for something else?


what if i remove the vein that’s shaped with wire?


what if i ponder and sketch and sketch and ponder and eventually come up with an aha that tickles me?
what if i have more show-and-tell tomorrow?

    First of all I just want to let you know how much I appreciate your blog and great ioiormatfnn. I am in the beginnin process of importing via bigred into my quickbooks but here is my question. I am sure this depends on how I set everything up. Our members pay via paypal and each member will be shown as a receivable in my quickbooks. We transfer the $$ from paypal to our bank account about once a week. I download the bank ioiormatfnn into quickbooks. How do I avoid a duplicate deposit amount. If I make it undeposited funds how to coordinate the deposit? Sorry, just confused and want to make sure that I set it up correctly. Thanks again, Elaine
