If you will notice, I almost made my goal of saving $1500.00 in July, but alas did not arrive home to bank until August. I actually came home with $118.00 in cash so $100.00 went to savings, and I also was able to put another $400.00 in savings from paycheck. I would love to be able to save another $1500.00 this month but we will be gone so much and we have to pay to travel. I have to pay back CC I used to travel last week. We only had one night in a hotel and a few meals out so other than gas we did really well. It is nice to travel with people who have your same goals in mind. Well with the exception of eating way too much pastry (my fault).
So the goal this month is to save $500.00 and even that may be tight. We will see and I will do my darnedest to make that higher. I just have to really watch my pennies.
It is hard to come back from a great vacation and get back into the swing of things. I did not sew much yesterday and I need to produce today. I needed to help at the studio as the new owner is down with the crud. So I was there last night costuming and rehearsing for a performance tonight that I will have to attend and help with. I am also going out to dinner tonight with my sister and mom and my sister's foster /child as it is her birthday. Money out, money out. Dang and I want money in, money in.
Our sprinkling system has developed a leak at it's source and water is SOOOO expensive here so we have had the city and the sprinkler company out here and they will come again. I don't want to see next months water bill or the company bill. Great! Have you noticed that it is always water with us?
I am going to make dinner for my dance studio owner as she has 5 kids and a husband and is going through a rough time with her health. So between trying to clean, sew, cook, bathe and watch dancers and go out to dinner this evening it will be a busy.
Mom, Lil sis and I are going back to Missoula tomorrow for the weekend to let mom see her brother. We will stay with a friend and that will help with expenses. Mom will pay for gas. I will just have meals and snacks. I will try and keep it cheap. We will come home Monday.
Well I had better get busy as the work does not do itself. Darn!
Have a great and productive day!
