Nope. Not Ready. No Way.

I woke up this morning with grainy eyes and too much blood in my caffeine stream.  With mug firmly in hand, I staggered to my computer - which Hubs had so thoughtfully turned on for me - and began my morning routine.  First I load my three main tabs: Blogger Dashboard, Facebook, Gmail.  Then after I take care of anything pressing there, I go to my Amazon reports page. 

Sales occurred while I was sleeping*!  Yay!

So, I open my spreadsheets and realize...  ummm... it's July now.  I am so not ready for it to be July already.  Nope.  Not ready.  No way.

Now, a smart woman would've probably already set everything up so she wouldn't have to deal with formulas on the first of every month.  Yah, not feeling too smart this morning.  If I were more on the ball, I would've done this yesterday so I wouldn't have to deal with it sans coffee.  I am not as 'on the ball' as I'd wish.

Which means, here I am, trying to figure out how last night's sales meld in with everything else.  Should take me about an hour to get all the formulas input on all the worksheets in the two spreadsheets I use for compiling such data. 

Yes, I am a nerd.  Yes, I could put this off until later this morning, but putting things off is what got me into this mess in the first place.  No, I won't spend extra time getting ready for the coming months so this doesn't happen on 8/1.  I know me.  It ain't happenin'.

What about you?  Are you ready for a whole new month? 

*Huge thanks to whoever it was in Australia that bought one of each of my books.
