I am so happy to be back to blogging. Things are such a mess here financially I don't know where to begin, but just to be able to have the next 2 months to do what I want (within reason) is such a blessing I can hardly care about my finances. I will care when I don't have any money to pay bills:)
My arthritis is extremely bad right now and has been for the last month. Every day is a challenge. Mornings are especially hard, but I do loosen up throughout the day. I am so happy to report that the insurance company has okayed me for a one time drip (again) on Friday the 5th. I will be in the Spokane area as we are going up to see the two younger girls over the 4th. Daughter #2 was upset that I did not get the drip on Wednesday so I could feel better, but that was the soonest they would approve it. I am so looking forward to this. I have now been 4 months without medications besides over the counter and antibiotics. The result are not good let me tell you.
The Harry Potter workshop although a bust financially was very well done and the kids were so cute. They learned so much and had so much fun, I really enjoyed the group we had this year. We need to rethink time frames for next year.
Between Hubby, daughter #3 and myself we have had over $2000.00 in dental out of pocket in the last 3 weeks. Our savings is down to pennies. Because the workshops were not a break even all of Junes bills came out of studio savings so I am way down. I do have enough money to get through July, but August will be tough. I just am not going to worry right now. I need a month of me and concentrating on getting my pain under control and relaxing, doing what I want to do and enjoying my life. Bills will always be here.
As for the shop it is very busy right now which is a blessing. I actually had my best week ever last week and I was teaching full time! Which let me tell you did nothing for my arthritis. Teaching from 9-3 and then running home to greet client after client until 7:30 and then sewing until 11:00. This went on all week! Saturday I just laid around and vegged. It was so nice.
I do have to balance the check book for the house today and get a budget set up for July and transfer some money to pay the tithing check I wrote yesterday. Then I can really see where I stand and start working to correct the problems. Luckily I have money saved for our annual vacation to the coast so I do have money to have fun over the 4th, what ever is left will be put toward bills.
Out My Window: Have a lot of yard work to do, but who cares? Getting really hot here, I love it!
Have a great and productive day!
