Today I get to pay another $1000.00 to my last CC balance. This came from an unexpected $752.00 and extra money from costumes! Yippee! If all goes right I will add an additional $1000.00 on Friday from an extra paycheck. But Friday is dress rehearsal so we will see how it goes, I may be too busy to run to the bank and will have to do it next Monday when the smoke clears.
Yes, it is bill paying day. It is also run around like a chicken day. Still making costumes and gathering things I need for the show. I need to sit down and really look at the books instead of doing them in my head. Because my head often times sees things in a better light! Eternal optimist that I am. (sarcasm)
I just realized last night that today would be the 13th and my rent at the studio is due on the 13th. Where has the month gone? I think getting knocked out with food poisoning the first weekend in March threw me into a fog. But here I am in the 13th day and the atmosphere is clearing!
Tonight is the last big rehearsal before the show. This is D day, does everyone have a costume that fits? Do they know their stuff? Do they care? Do I care? You know that kind of thing. It is nerve racking as this is a building year for the company. Many of our dancers are young and the young ones without experience are harder to work with. I keep reminding my seniors that they were all this way several years ago and to go back and look at the shows we did when they were 10. So tonight we will concentrate on the positive and get these little ones up to show quality. It is important that they feel good about their performance. My motto has always been:" if you don't come off stage with a high, why are you torturing yourself?" I really want them to have fun!
Out My Window: Cold, windy, rainy, yuck! At least I don't feel tempted to work outside~!
I am going to get dressed and pay bills, run errands and sew costumes, have to be at the studio at 3 and this is a 5 hour night! Love my life, but will really love it when the show is over.
Have a great and productive day!
