So, today we we meet with a lawyer to go over everything pertaining to applying for non-profit status with the IRS. Tat's not stressful. He just said bring every single record or piece of documentation we have for the whole time we've been doing this. In one way it's exciting, it means that this little thing we started to help some kids has grown enough that it makes sense to branch out on our own and to leave the shelter of our church, who has been handling donations for us, behind. In another it's it's a LOT of work. I'm tired just thinking about it.
Side note-Have you ever read corporate bylaws before? Talk about dull, and long, and I am now convinced that lawyers go to school specifically to learn how to write page long sentences. Definitely not something I imagined myself doing in high school. Also, it's, like, our deal, so we suggest a re-write and it goes in there and then it's permanent and oh man I hope that won't come back to bite us in the butt later.
I have discovered that work on this kind of thing makes me a boring conversationalist at the playground. "Man I have a headache, I've been reviewing corporate bylaws for 3 hours." That's a conversation killer right there. I promise.
Anyway, soon it will be done.
Also it is spring, so I have embarked on what seems to be a yearly tradition of starting massive sewing projects, and mending everything. Well, planning to mend everything, but there's this really big project that I'm working on....
I am also doing that depressing closet sort that comes about this time of pregnancy. You know, the part where you bid a fond farewell to all the pants and skirts and other items that no longer fit, and probably won't for at least another year, and put them all in a box up on the top shelf.
I wish I could say my absence here is caused by things less tedious or mundane, but, such is the stuff my life is actually made of. I may be back with the conclusion of an actual thought sometime soon.
