I’ve been wound a bit tight this weekend, trying to figure out some of the legal and tax implications of being “self employed”. As a legal librarian (not a lawyer or accountant), I know just enough to be dangerous. ;o) I called my dad tonight, feeling very stressed about “ohmygoodnessIdon’tknowhowtosetupanLLCorhowthatworkswithtaxesorwhotocallorwhattodo…” I was practically hyperventilating and near tears. His response?
“You’ve run a couple of marathons and a lot of long races. You know you can’t worry about the entire 26.2 all at once. You’ll just get overwhelmed. You worry about the first mile and take the remaining ones as they come. So, just figure out what piece you need to start with and deal with that first.”
Right, Dad. Thanks for the reminder.
*Taking a deep breath*
Anyways, between my dad’s advice and a 2.5 mile run last night that involved approaching my puke threshold, I think I’ve got a better grip. As I mentioned on facebook, sometimes I have to run so that I don’t run away.
On to more fun things…
Three more winners! Jones was mad that Shoo got to pick all three winners last time, so he picked today. He refused to dress up for your enjoyment. Sorry.
Winner #10 is
