Remember my goal about less stress? Well yesterday a High school about 30 miles away called and wanted me to do the Choreography for an upcoming musical. I have done this musical twice in the last 15 years. I have access to costumes but the schedule was so close to my Spring recital and the pay would really just cover my time and gas. I said NO. I told them they could borrow the costumes and I would give them copies of choreography. Now last year I would have rearranged my schedule to go up and do this. I am getting smarter. Or older I am not sure which. Okay definitely older.
I am still desperately missing Judy. Has any one heard when we can expect her?
I got up this morning and the dog had been sick, so I am doing laundry. I also did not get enough done in the shop yesterday, so I need to speed up today. I had 10 pair of pants come in yesterday all due out by Friday. I also have two Wedding dresses that need to be ready to fit by the end of the week. I did get about 10 parents called about dresses, but I fear that anything that comes in will be too large and I will still be making 3-4 small dresses. Oh well.
Had to buy gas and groceries yesterday. I also took the TV add manager out to lunch, but that was on a gift card. I did get about $3.00 into the sealed pot however. I have figured out how to get hubby to not right checks for gas. I come home and take the car between classes. If I leave it at home he goes and fills it up. Last night when I got home from the studio we went to the station together and I paid cash. He has not written a check since 1-27 which is good as it keeps me on budget. Now I don't care if he writes a check, I just would rather go on cash. We spend less.
There is a ton of laundry to put away up stairs and I think I will go do the dishes in the kitchen sink. My hands and wrists are stiff and sore this morning, that will loosen them up. I also must really sew today. Don't I say that everyday? What is wrong with me?
Out My Window: Cold! Frosty. Brrr! I don't think it will warm up today.
I think I have the budget worked out to be on even keel by the end of the month, but it will be close. Tuition is still disappointing and it is the 8th. Scary. I expected over $1000.00 last night and I think we took in about $700.00. But we have 3 more days so I am trying not to get anxious. Rent is due next Monday and I want to get all the bills paid at least. This will let me see what can go to the CC this month. Last month it was $1000.00 and it would be great if I could do that. I just don't think it will happen. Too many little bills crop up.
Okay I had better get busy, work here I come.
Have a great and productive day!
