Recently Danny offered to help me fill out financial aid forms for the various schools where I've applied. I was so glad to be able to work on it together because, quite frankly, I would have no clue where to begin. One school asked for detailed figures that would give them a picture of where we are at financially. I took a deep breath and read Danny the list. "First we need to know the total cash, checking, savings, and other liquid assets. Then we need investments, stocks, and IRA's." I settled in for a long wait while he calculated all this information. Less than 10 seconds elapsed before he had the answer. Seriously. See, it pays to be married to an accountant!
