Sammy came running in at high speed with squishy poo stuck to his bum. Probably because he had my nutritional shake this morning.

Before I could get to him he had scooted all over the carpet with an amazing level of maximum coverage.

My day is complete.

Thank you and good night.

and I got to deal with all of this when I got home after a kak day at work.  :lamer:


US tax law and rules and stuff is a nightmare. Especially so if you are self-employed or own a small company. I have complete sympathy with Mrs Zog, its a fricken minefield.  :xxbah:


But hey, tomorrow they deliver the new fridge, and my new bakkie drives like a dream  :biggrin:

Thank you - I take that as a huge compliment. It brightened my day.

I'm struggling hard this week. I did something to my left Achilles tendon and am trying to rest it, but it's difficult. I'm also stuck in tax hell with my company. I had a long chat with my accountant yesterday and he's not good at explaining things. I'm confused as hell. I can't see myself continuing this way.

I'm considering scrapping my company, declaring my income on my personal taxes as before, and just sucking up the extra self-employment tax somehow without annuals reports, huge tax prep fees, quarterly filings, etc. I'm losing my will.

I have another meeting with the tax guy in a couple of weeks. I'll ask him to draw me a picture and explain it to me like I'm 5 years old because I have no idea what I'm doing.

 :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[
I know less than nothing when it comes to tax, so I can't help there... But I may have something for you on the achilles front; it helped me.

If you have a foam roller, use that, if not, a tightly closed Coke bottle will do. Or even two tennis balls taped together.

Now in the dip(as in triceps workout) position, roll your calf up and down on the roller/bottle/tennis balls for a minute or two. It normally eases up the strain on the tendon. Hope it helps...

My gut feeling is... I don't know. And that's my honest opinion. There are too many weird factors in this election. The current issues around mail-in voting is only one. COVID is another.

I think it could go either way.

Well, I'm a US citizen. Mr. Zog is a permanent resident with his citizenship application in process. Regardless, last I checked we can't be deported for having a political opinion.  ???

I just want to keep this thread free of political discussions. If I want that, I'll go to Religion & Politics and stand on a soap box there  ::)

In other news, I'm waiting for the new fridge to be delivered. They gave me a delivery windows between 13:00 and 17:00.

It'll be so nice to have a new shiny fridge that I don't have to jiggle and kick to keep going!

P.S. and where the drawers aren't held together by duct tape!  ;D

Even as a man, it was a pleasure when we got a decent fridge ( our first in 26 years of marriage) the other day!
Deepfreeze at the bottom, doorshelves that take 2lt bottles easily and space!
Enjoy yours!

Sorry for not posting much - I'm stuck in work/tax hell still. I seem to be slowly getting a grip on understanding how it all works.

I think when I fully understand how it's supposed to be and what needs to happen, it'll be ok. I just fired off another e-mail to my accountant, outlining what I think needs to happen. Hopefully he'll tell me I got it right. Then I can implement and get on track with it all.

It's only Tuesday.

Ugh.

Finished last night:

Book 26 of 2020: Captive - Tony Park

That's the end of my Tony Park binge. There are two more books, but I don't have them. I'll get around to ordering them eventually.

Next up: re-reading Deon Meyer.

Bring it on.  ;D

For those of you who wonder where I find time to read so much: I read in the evening/in bed at night. I spend all day on my laptop working, so I don't really want to spend more time staring at a screen during my off time than I have to.  ::)
