It was busy here yesterday and we were able to get through at the studio just fine with daughter gone. Monday's are hectic as we have so many classes going and kids going from one studio to another. Teachers running back and forth. Tonight will be easier as we don't teach at the college in the evening. I also will not have a Junior High play rehearsal.
I am going to call my landlord and turn on the heat at the studio. But I will pay a furnace man to come in and set it. Last year landlord did it and I was getting 4-500.00 power bills. I told him get it fixed or I am moving. Low and behold we can heat the place for about $250.00 if we keep it at 68 M-F from 2:30 to 8:00 and 50 the rest of the time.
I also have a dancer that comes from a very poor family that was sold the wrong style of point shoe. I made her try on another dancer's shoe and she was able to pop right up in them. I am a little irritated because I always have my new dancers get fitted by a professional and this shoe is WRONG for her. Point shoes run about $80.00 a pair. So I will call and complain and I know they will send me a new pair. I don't complain, ever and I give this shop a great deal of business. There are hundreds of different styles of shoes to fit different shaped feet, I don't know what they were thinking.
We are still getting checks every night. It is the 8th, it will be interesting to see who will get a late charge. I went through registration last night and it is the same old bunch that has not paid, but many of them have the next three days so we will see. I am actually looking forward to sending out the late charges. Before I was always apologetic or scared. Now I don't care. It is my money. I have worked hard for it. Go, Kim, go!
Out My Window: We have to get the chickens water warmer fixed or buy a new one. It was frozen this morning. 32 here last night. Brrrrrrr...
I have a Wedding dress fitting at 10 and many people to call to pick up. I also need to hem at least 10 pairs of pants. So here I go off to another fun filled eventful day! (heavy sarcasm)
Can someone please tell me how to get into the Christmas spirit? Judy's post a while back got me there for a minute, but I am lagging....... I was thinking each or us should write a post about our most memorable Christmas and share it. What do you think? Different stories, maybe a little inspiration. Just a thought. But not until after Thanksgiving, I think we need to concentrate on this important Holiday. I love Thanksgiving, lots of good food and family and no gifts or unmet expectations.
Have a great and productive day!
