Tuesday, Still trying to ....

 I hemmed 18 pairs of pants yesterday among other things. By the way there are still pants to be hemmed here.  They are lurking unseen in various places in the shop.

It is homecoming weekend, and I am getting calls for dresses.  I took two in from very old clients but turned all others away.  Sorry. I don't need the money or the stress.

I have a short list of things I want to get done before I take off on Thursday.  I will not add to the list, I will not add to the list, I will not add......

I am trying to have a mantra in my head.   I also will need to clean the house and clean the car before I leave.  But those things are a given.

Getting my nails done tomorrow and I have a specialist appt. early on Thursday before I leave. I could cancel, but this is the new specialist and I have not seen an actual person for over a year.  It has all been via zoom.  I will be put off several months if I cancel. 

It is rainy and chilly here, so I turned off the air conditioner but no heat yet. I am actually excited about the rain as it means I do not have to water. 

I purchased several packages of bulbs for the garden that need to be planted, but I will do that next week.  I also have to winter over about 40 geraniums, and I will need to get that done before I leave for Kays. I will get missionaries to help me with the outdoor work. Last year Joel and I left everything in the gardens and pots, thinking we would come home in January and get them cleaned out.  Not what happened.  It is much easier to get it done now, I found this out after it was too late.

So now onto today's list:

1. hem bridesmaid dress

2. hem bridesmaid dress

3. take in brides maid dress

4. hem homecoming dress

5. alter homecoming dress

6. let out three pairs of pants

7. call clients

8. clean house

9. clean and vacuum car, get car cooler ready

10. hem a choir formal

Okay I am off ( Sluggy and Anne I know what you are thinking) to get some work done. But only what is on the list nothing else.
