My blogs in the short duration will most likely be about my new business venture rather than my writing, but it is what’s happening in my life. Plus, this is still “technically” writing…

My friend Sheba recently wrote a post entitled “Two Steps Forward, One Step Back,” and boy can I relate to that one today. It started with the bank – I went to open the business account since I received my EIN (tax ID) number, and have prepared the LLC docs, only to find out the LLC paperwork needs to be filed with the State first. Kind of backwards, since I’ll be paying for the filing with my own personal funds, but makes sense too that they won’t open the account in that type of name until its “official.” I just wish they would have told me that when I was there last week and asked about it… So, Josh and I just continued on our way and grocery shopped for enough food to feed a pack of wild rabid dogs for about a month, and life was good again. For a minute.

Maybe I should have played this game as a child instead of pretending I was one of Charlies' Angels.
Next I moved the Monster Desk back into the office space only to discover that my wireless network adapter doesn’t work with 64-bit Windows 7 on my desktop computer. I’ll need that computer to run on the wireless network until I can get the business lines installed (yeah, still haven’t called them either). SO, off to Radio Shack I will go tomorrow to purchase a new adapter. If you’re the kind of person that likes clicking on links, here’s the link to the adapter I’ll be picking up. The fun just never stops around here.

I'm all about pictures-in-the-blog today.
 So fine, at least everything is in the office now, right? But wait – there’s more! Somehow in the process of moving, oh the 50 feet or so from the living room to the office, my printer committed suicide without me noticing. It didn’t even say goodbye or print a note. I just put new ink in it a few weeks ago too, and this is how it thanks me… the nerve! Add that to the list = printer. Check. (click here Clickers) This time I’m investing in a laser. Inkjets are for sissys! Pfft!

Now it’s 3 am and I just finished my first attempt at a logo, and I can’t say I’m exactly happy with it, but it’s a start. The perfectionist in me (read-OCD) will be messing with it until it’s just right…

So, two steps forward, one step back? Or three or four? I’ve lost count, but I think that might be a good thing in this case.

Yes it is. :)

  1. What, you expected it to be EASY? It looks to me as if progress is being made. And look, you've already got 5 blog posts this month. That's progress too!

    Keep at it, my friend. You're making headway.
