How Anal is your accountant? Well personally, I am pretty bad.
Treasurer of a pipe band, managing mother's accounts as her power of attorney, a few other little entities to keep track of, filing is a priority. All documents must be filed in the right divider of the right folder kept in the right shelf of the right cupboard. Whole punches must be done in exactly the middle so that the documents all line up perfectly top to bottom. Fabric for sewing and craft projects is stored in tubs, notions are stored in separate tubs. Bills to pay are in date order on a bulldog clip and written up on a sheet as to when payment is due and crossed off when paid. (Then filed per above).
In fact the entire family suffers from anal retentiveness.
The son who has been head librarian at college for two years has the entire bookshelf at home organised in subject order, with sections for each depending on the shelf height. The children's books are on the low shelves in case of small visitors. The extensive DVD collection is alphabetised and the games are subcategorised into type of game - play station, Wii, Xbox etc and then in genre and then in alphabetical order.
The daughter - top of her accounting class at college and just as bad as her brother. The kitchen is organised in supermarket shopping order, with shelves of the pantry organised as supermarket aisles, there's the baking isle, the breakfast aisle, the treat aisle - which is so high only her brother can reach it, the lunch box aisle etc. Woe betide anyone who files the groceries into the wrong shelf position.
Then there's the husband, he who can stand on the deck of the house and name all 120 different magnolias in the garden and where they are planted. He who has a spreadsheet of each of his plant varieties so that he can go to a garden centre and check off the list for any plant he doesn't have in his many collections.
It's no wonder accountants have such a bland stereotype of being boring and they are the butt of so many jokes. But my house is never boring, we all still talk to each other and sometimes its the little things that are actually really important.
If the little things still matter to you like they still matter to us then I would love to meet with you and give you that same attention to detail that I know and love.
