I decided last week, that it was time to pay my girls a bit for their help. I told you that I was trying to get myself on a new schedule, and I have been more or less successful with that depending on my motivation. According to that schedule, I need to be sitting down to work at 2pm. So, I told the girls I was needing a wife from 2pm until DH gets home, and that I was taking volunteers, and would pay the princely sum of $5 per day to the girl who took care of the babies, and started supper. I don’t need to get a work permit for them, AND I get to deduct it from next years taxes. Pretty slick, huh?
