Ha, Jack! Old soul who won’t grow up! Love it.

Yes, I have an exhausting schedule but hope to change that in the near future. Now that my daughter and grandchildren have moved out, life is a little less hectic but work is still overwhelming most weeks. Have to pare down my client list but that is unbelievably difficult for me to do. I have a strong loyalty to my clients — too strong. I am avoiding having The Talk with some of them. Would be easier if I had recommendations of people who do what I do, but, alas the only one I know is also cutting back. I feel like I am abandoning my clients and that weighs heavy on my heart. Still, I cannot continue indefinitely at my current pace. I feel fortunate to have a problem of too much work when some have none but it simply poses a different set of problems.

As always, thanks for reading and responding!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
