…treat it as a game in the amusement park of life.
PLEASE stop telling me to vote!!!!
I am registered
I WILL vote
STOP THE ADS!!!!!!!!
Oh, and I will vote for whomever *I* want to vote for, not who I am told to choose! That’s the beauty of my RIGHT TO CHOOSE!!
ok…rant over….now…on to the Christmas decorations in October! (today is only the 27th of October and I heard the last snippet of ‘a partridge in a pear tree’ on TV yesterday!!! Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Now I am enraged.
I have set up an LLC. Once I received the Certificate of Formation, I needed to apply for a Tax ID. I thought this would be easy. I’ve done this before, numerous times. Of course, since I was doing this for myself, this continues to be the exact OPPOSITE of easy.
Working with my accountant, we tried to run the SS-4 application through the IRS website and it was rejected 3 times. THREE! We couldn’t find any errors the site lists that will delay or reject an application and decided to follow the instructions to fax over the form. This was done on a Monday afternoon.
Fast forward 7 days to the following Monday and, FINALLY, the IRS sends a fax. Yay! I have my Tax ID! I can start to do the work I’d like to be doing the way I wanted to be doing it.
With my documents in hand I went to the bank to open a business account. When I handed in the SS-4 it couldn’t be accepted because it isn’t the actual form. All that was faxed was the original hand-written application with the Tax ID hand-written and merely a partial date stamp identifying the IRS’ official seal(?).
I go online to find out how I go about getting the official assignment letter from the IRS. Everything I have found on the IRS’ website points me to a phone number to call (great, spend an hour on hold and hope, every second of that hour, that you do not get disconnected) and the only reasons the assume you will need this is that you’ve lost it. How about I didn’t lose it, I never GOT it!
So, my next step is to make that call, wait for the hour hoping I won’t get disconnected, then request the SS-4 so I can open my bank account and get this project rolling!
Wish me luck!
Sometimes friends need to break up. Sometimes breaking up with a friend is harder than breaking up with a lover. Sometimes destruction is necessary.
Recently I found myself in a situation I no longer had control of and I was afraid. I didn’t know how to confront the person in a way that I would win, or at least extricate myself as amicably as possible, so I did the only thing I knew how to do, I hid. I let someone else fight my battle. I was called a coward and that I am weak.
This rattled me, HARD, for 2 full days. I was crushed. I knew this person was unhealthy for me but it’s much easier to simply comply and spend some time with them than try to find a valid excuse they will accept for your declined response to their invitation.
At some point during those 2 days, when walking around in a fog, I knocked my statue onto the floor, breaking it into 5 pieces. All I could say was; sometimes you have to accept destruction to move on.
“It’s like meditation. Riding to work in the morning, I see people in their cars, talking on their phones, shaving, even eating bowls of cereal. When I’m riding a bike, the only things I’m doing are breathing, listening to the engine and changing gears. It’s just me and my bike – no multitasking, no texting – and it clears my head like nothing else.”
Deactivate your facebook account.
My time is election years. I’ve also gotten very sick of people using it as a forum to be a complete asshat and judge, name call and even at times actually threaten people.
Hopefully I can keep in touch with many of the friends I have on fb after I deactivate my account because, of course, I am still all over social media!
