training weirdness

Ever have those weeks that you've planned the whole week with workouts etc, then you post some chain mail thing about priorities and the week just blows to Oscar. Monday was supposed to be a swim, but I was called in to work, so it's home to bike instead. 2 hours spin time, 1 hour at a time. Today was supposed to be a 3200 swim-but one sick kid calling to be picked up at school and 30 cantakerous active older adults in the pool with the swim team combined with year end payroll crimey nixed my swim. My bro in law was cross training, so I joined him for 20 minutes, and wrapped up with 30 mins on the treadmill and some stretching. I have to re cert in CPR/AED tomorrow, so I see a late night swim in the works.

In the process of taxes and payroll, I learned that I can "hire" each of my kids and pay them up to $4860.00, owing no FICA and they owe no tax because they don't reach the individual filer limit. Who thinks of this stuff?

Guess what kids? Time to raise your allowance!

Sounds as if you have a great tax man/woman!
What you may miss in workouts, you most certainly make up for it with your tenacity and drive!

wow, I just started giving Mighty Mo a penny for putting his milk sippy cup in the sink by himself. Gotta rethink that plan.
