Okay, enough from Dolly. I actually did work from 9 to 5 today. It's Saturday.
Accounting and I clicked when I was in high school. I have a degree in Business Administration but Accounting was my major. It doesn't matter if you work in tax, audit or general accounting, there is always going to be a busy time.
I ended up interning for one of the Big 6 (at the time) public accounting firms during college and stayed there for five years after graduating with my degree. Leaving was probably one of the best career moves I made. I cannot imagine working the hours that I did with kids. There was one year that I worked 90 hour weeks the two weeks leading up to the 9/15 filing deadline. That included working all three days of the holiday weekend.
So, yeah, I shouldn't complain but sometimes it's tough.
