Next Monday's post will have to be on no saving money. Yesterday was very busy in the shop, and I had a Wedding dress that had 8 layers, three of which needed to be hemmed. Then it had to be taken up in the shoulders, so the sleeves had to be removed and reset. I finished with a bustle. I felt like I just cut and cut all day, while customers dropped off piles of things.
I really wanted to get to painting my deck, and the best time to do this is early evening. Mom had another ANOTHER appointment at 4:30, so I asked Lil sis to take her and FEED her, but Lil sis was called into work so I took her and then I thought I am not going to go home and cook a 4 course meal and then do all the dishes, which is what mom would expect. So I craved a salad and I took mom to Arby's. Well after getting all she wanted and my salad it was almost $20.00. Yikes! I will not do that again. She does like to eat out, but I will find a cheaper solution. Mom never pays for anything and she never has her purse with her, so getting money out of her is like squeezing water out of a metal chain.
After wasting $20.00 I came home and did about 1/6 the deck and then went for a long walk. I am doing the deck in parts so it dries well and I can some what keep the animals off. The minute I am outside working the animals all have to come help. Little darlings, I have red foot prints all over, and then I have to keep them out of the house.
I need to work on another Wedding dress today and then a few other things to get my quota done. Feed the animals, check on the chickens, collect the eggs, water all the plants, feed the mother all have to be done in the next hour and then I will hit the machines.
This evening when it cools down some, I will continue on the deck and weed some in the front bed. I have a lot of yard waste mess to clean up and the wisteria has to be cut back again as it is taking over this part of the planet.
I love it when I have nothing to do. Heavy sarcasm.
Have a great and productive day!
