I keep messing with the blog lay out and I like this better, I guess I am a creature of habit.
I finally received that last of my tuition, recital fees, and costume fees, plus a late charge yesterday! I also went to several students and asked them specifically if they were doing the summer workshop. If I did not get at least 10 enrolled, I was going to cancel. I am no longer going to lose money on ventures down there. Now I don't have to make money (it would be nice) but I will break even.
I also made a lovely chicken curry yesterday and I am going to do a Taco salad today. Just trying to cook more as I have been so lax lately. We also bought a few garden plants last night, but I really need to spend time weeding, before I even think about planting.
So I am going to get some sewing done and try to figure out the garden and my strategy for yard clean up. When I work on a strategy I don't actually have to do the work. I just think. :)
On better note: I do have over $800.00 in my savings account for vacation. May it stay there. We do get paid next Thursday and I will have an extra $400.00 if the shop does well and people pick up I will not have to spend that. So I am hoping by the end of the month to have at least $1200.00 of the $2700.00 saved for vacation and extra bills. I also forgot that I will receive about a $400.00 check from the college at the end of May so that will help. I will also get back some of the $500.00 cleaning deposit from B's apartment, but don't know when that will come.
I am going to take care of my grandson the first week in June, so that means I will not be earning any money. This will only give me the last three weeks of June and I will also have 2 workshops that will take me out of the shop in the mornings. But if I can pull another $1000.00 out of these and use the extra money from the cleaning check, I will be able to make my goal. Goals are easy to set and hard to see through. Something always happens.
Out My Window: Cooler but still nice, actually better to work in than hot!
Well I am off to storm the castle!
