Watched the Ballet piece for the Celtic show last night and it is beautiful. Ghosts and wolves. Modern in flat slippers, and very good choreography. I am so proud of these kids. Now if I could just get the Celtic kids to do the same it is their show after all.
Still in costume nightmare and will be here for a while. I will finish up the costumes for the Boyfriend today and then start on whatever. Tonight I really must get the costumes organized for the Celtic kids. I am just in avoidance mode. But I did get the Drama class at the High school to agree to cut out all my symbols so that will save me time. Just pray I don't have to make over 5 dresses.
March looks good for bills, I think. I only have a water bill $196.00 and two small life insurance bills for the girls that are extra, $150.00. I keep insurance on them until they graduate and have all their loans paid off.
Also I was thinking that I have these two funds. One the emergency fund and the other is a studio savings fund. I could use a vacation fund, a medical fund, a car repair fund, a Christmas fund, a gift fund, a house repair fund. That would be 8 funds to fund! Say that fast 5 times! I know some of you have many separate accounts at ING to sort all this money, but right now for me in my debt pay off I can only handle my two funds. I also put $500.00 in to an IRA, but I will not stop this plan until I am down to a mortgage payment. Then I can for see breaking up the car loan and distributing it into different piles.
I do save for different items through out the year. Like the fridge and this month we spent money moving the girls. But this is done with cash on hand and not savings. I wish I could save more but I am not willing to sacrifice my already frugal life style. But reading Judy's post with her plumbing problems, and now Mysti with her cracked tooth, we all really need more savings. Or different savings accounts. Scary, always something happening. So I got to worrying about it yesterday and then I thought, you can't deal with this right now. Today you can deal with what you have. The future is the future, it is what you do today that will affect your future, so get your work done, don't debt, live below your means and carry on. That is what I did. Someday I will superfund the funds. But not today.
Out My Window: Cold, but Spring is right around the corner! Three little birds outside the window this morning woke me up. It was sunny, they were singing!
I am going to get dressed and return to my costume dungeon and work like a slave. Because that is what I do best!
Have a great and productive day!
