Well we mailed the late payment notes last week and we also made 150 copies to hand directly to parents as they came in. Not much was said. I noticed a few parents left a little huffy but I don't care if we lose enrollment. Our classes are too large anyway. We actually had 2 parents pay immediately for this month and next month with the late charge added. Also another paid with the late charge added. So so far I have rec'd $80.00 in late charges. We only have two others that have not paid. Hopefully this works.
Classes were a nightmare last night. Just too many kids and too much confusion. We moved a class to the college to free up studio space. Hopefully this will help. It was a Jazz class that I see as unprofitable. So if it tumbles so be it. Next Monday is Halloween and the downtown does a trick or treat, so we will not accomplish much that night either. Just frustrating. If I can get things done tonight I will feel better. I just want my #'s done so we can practice and rehearse. I have 9 show numbers that are not finished and it is driving me crazy. The constant bombardment at the studio of parents is also a little over whelming. Well we wanted to be successful now we get to pay the price!
Enough whining, now what am I going to do about it? Get a note book and write down all the choreography so you are sure it will work and get in there and teach, no distraction. Some times I have to take the Pippi Longstocking approach to life. Just get in there and do it!
I gave hubby $40.00 for gas last night, so that should be the last money he needs until Saturday. I am trying not to spend all week. We have plenty of food and plenty of gas in cars. I did not get as much sewing done yesterday as I wished. But we did get costumes ordered and things figured out for studio. We will need to order more costumes tomorrow. Still have to make a few things, but I will divvy those out to parents and helpers.
Out My Window: It froze last night. Frost all over garden and deck. Chickens huddled up. I think I will turn on their light tonight. I am a softy.
Another day of work, work, work! Laundry, dishes, beds, sewing, dancing,cleaning. Got to love my life as I am the one who has made it. I hope I feel differently when the debt is paid off. But right now it is a little overwhelming (I use that word too often) and some what exciting.
Have a great and productive day!
