Crawled out of bed this morning. Had a good turnout last night, not stellar but I was pleased. Lost at least 6 older students to graduation and busy lives. But to tell you the truth they were not my best dancers. Nice girls and fun, it will not hurt the final product. I just hate to lose kids that I have had for 12 years, but they do grow up. I am more interested in the new little enrollment because from them comes the loyalty that stays with you.
We had 5 new last night and this is only the first day. I will stay positive. Started a Christmas # last night so we are not rushed at Christmas time with all the show and performance stuff.
When I came home from teaching I had a bride in my shop! It was 8:30 at night and I needed to get some protein in my stomach and go clean the bank. She had 7 bridesmaids, 4 dresses were fine, but three of them although they were hemmed well were taken in by someone who did not know how to alter! What a mess. Pick out all her pleats and tucks and start over. I have to have these done buy Thursday. Money, Money! Also the shop will be busy today, people know I am back in town. Bride was in hysterics, but I calmed her down. Why do people do things when they do not know what they are doing? Well I guess on another note I also had to learn this skill.
Out My Window: Sunny, warm late summer weather. I can't look at back porch, so much needs to be done and I can't get to it until Saturday so I will selectively neglect it!
I am going in to do a deposit and then pay some bills, at least get bills from August paid, then set up a September budget. I am going on a fiscal fast next week so I need to plan ahead. Can I go a week without spending any money?
Have a great and productive day!
