Studio $ 498.12
I am proud of me! Why? Because yesterday I sat down and in 1/2 hour did two very important things I have been putting off that are financially important. I am a terrible procrastinator on certain things.
I received a notice last week that I had not updated the FAFSA with new tax records. Now I was afraid this would take forever and I would get stuck and infinite phone calls, frustration. But no as I have a card with all the codes and pins and daughters SS# and drivers # it took about 10 minutes. So why have I been dreading this and letting it keep me up at night?
I needed a form to get the last of our Cobra money out to pay a dental bill. $707.11. Now I have already paid the bill and I could use this money but without a form I cannot send it in to the company. Well I googled the website and looked for forms and low and be hold up it came! I copied it and mailed everything.
Other than those two things I did nothing but sew yesterday. The shop was crazy with the first customer at 8:15. I also took in 3 dresses that have to go out today. Bridesmaids that are flying out on Monday and the dresses arrived yesterday. I was doing a great deal of hand work last night to finish up a bridal alteration. Hubby wanted to go on a walk around the levy but I had too much to finish.
I am very stiff and sore this morning. I thought I was getting better. But maybe I am just impatient and forgetting how crippled I had become. I had a bride show up at 9 to borrow the steamer. Then another bridesmaid at 9:15. I was so stiff I had a hard time pushing pins through the dress. So I told myself to get busy. Emptied 3 over flowing trash cans and put new liners in them. Anything to get the large muscles moving and force me to use my hands.
I think I will do a quick run through the house too help loosen me up and then get busy in the shop. I would love to be done with my sewing by 4:30. I have many pick ups today after 5 but I just want to be done before the crowd gets here.
Paid the house payment yesterday, so one of my goals this week is complete. Now I need to get the rent paid at the studio $700.00, get the truck payment made $500.00 and the theater bill $925.00 by next week and I am sure I will have to hit the savings for at least one of those. DARN! I really dislike being broke.
I work so hard and make all this money and it just goes to bills. Okay I am whining as I did take a nice 4 day trip to see my girls and did several fun things just last weekend. It is so easy to forget how blessed I am.
Out My Window: Beautiful and not too hot. I hope to work in the yard a bit later this evening.
I need to go clean myself up, get a few household chores done and hit the shop.
Have a great and productive day!
