I took in $505.00 more dollars in tuition so add that to the check book balance and I am just $400.00 short of paying off my mother. I hope that I can take in that much tuition this evening. It is possible. I actually told one new parent who has been skating around her fees for 5 lessons now, that she has to have forms and money in tomorrow night or I will not let her daughter dance and I will put another student that is waiting for a spot in her place. We are not a charity. I feel so mean but I have to set a president as there are so many who will take advantage. I did not realize this until I opened this business. There are actually parents that make the rounds of every studio and try to take lessons for a few months without paying. It is funny but I can spot these the second they walk in! The first year we were open was a nightmare. I have really learned a great deal about people running this business.
I noticed that many bloggers are having trouble getting as one would call it their "groove back". What is wrong with all of us? Is it something in the air? I know the East coast has been plagued with bad weather and that could account for some but all of us? A thought....... are we trying to hard?
Out My Window: I worked for two hours yesterday in the yard. I was able to get the patio done and trimmed up a portion of the garden. For people who did not plant pumpkins, why did I find over 30 of them? They come up from seed! I also uncovered 2 more beautiful acorn squash and several cucumbers and one bunch of amazing leeks, I forgot I planted. It was like Christmas! Chickens are laying like crazy now every time I go to the coop there are at least 4 eggs, they are pullet sized but delicious. I give away what we don't use. I have never checked before, but organic eggs are about $4.50 a dozen here, I was shocked. I don't buy eggs until they are .99 or 1.29 a dozen and then I buy 5 or more dozen at a time. Eggs can last for weeks in a refrigerator. How ever I cook from scratch and I do use a lot of eggs. I am going out side to continue where I left off yesterday but it is raining.
I have a doctors appointment at 10:20 this morning , I will have all my labs done. When you take the kind of meds I do it affects the kidneys and liver. Fun! Our deductible started over in July so I will have a co-pay and at least a $250.00 bill from this visit. Got to love poor health.
I was able to sew $104.00 worth of product yesterday and I have to get back in the shop today after the Doctor. I only have to teach one class today at 3 p.m. so I can come home and sew more after class. I do have 2 wedding dresses that need love by tomorrow, and piles of hemming. Where does it all come from?
I was able to not spend yesterday! yippee! So actually two no spends this week and money spent has been under $10.00. I feel pretty good about that figure.
Have a great and productive day!
