Funny how some details are fine and you'll focus and be meticulous about them. But then there are others that drive you crazy and you'd rather go to the dentist and listen to that annoying high-pitched drill than sit down and finish the last little details. Inputting recipes into my software program is like that for me. It's a great program - originally meant for soap makers (thus the name SoapMaker) but you can input ingredients for herbal stuff and essential oils and it will break down the costs for you and keep a record of each recipe and/or batch so you can easily retrieve it. Well, "easily" as long as you sit your butt in the chair and do the input work. Why that's so difficult for me, I don't know. I line up all my ingredients before starting my project, figure out all the proportions, mix and blend, pour and label. But somehow, I feel like I should be done after that. Having to sit down and put everything into the program is sort of like starting over. Okay, I can hear you saying, "Why don't you input before you start?" I could I suppose, but I also put in notes about what I'd change next time around, what the retail cost is and if the recipe needs alterations next time so I'm not losing money on it (which I have a tendency to do), etc. Now I hear you saying, "Input the ingredients and get that out of the way and then go back and add any notes later." Waaaay too logical! Just let me bitch about it, okay?
