Wednesday, Goals, Goals, Goals

     Crawled out of bed this morning.  Had a good turnout last night, not stellar but I was pleased.  Lost at least 6 older students to graduation and busy lives.  But to tell you the truth they were not my best dancers.  Nice girls and fun, it will not hurt the final product.  I just hate to lose kids that I have had for 12 years, but they do grow up.   I am more interested in the new little enrollment because from them comes the loyalty that stays with you.
     We had 5 new last night and this is only the first day.  I will stay positive. Started a Christmas # last night so we are not rushed at Christmas time with all the show and performance stuff.
     When I came home from teaching I had a bride in my shop!  It was 8:30 at night and I needed to get some protein in my stomach and go clean the bank.  She had 7 bridesmaids, 4 dresses were fine, but three of them although they were hemmed well were taken in by someone who did not know how to alter!  What a mess.  Pick out all her pleats and tucks and start over.  I have to have these done buy Thursday.  Money, Money!  Also the shop will be busy today, people know I am back in town.  Bride was in hysterics, but I calmed her down.  Why do people do things when they do not know what they are doing?  Well I guess on another note I also had to learn this skill.
Out My Window:  Sunny, warm  late summer weather.  I can't look at back porch, so much needs to be done and I can't get to it until Saturday so I will selectively neglect it!

     I am going in to do a deposit and then pay some bills, at least get bills from August paid, then set up a September budget.  I am going on a fiscal fast next week so I need to plan ahead.  Can I go a week without spending any money? 

Have a great and productive day!



  1. Wow, you are really busy Kim!

    I'm looking forward to having company on my fiscal's much more fun that way!

  2. I really hope that you don't undervalue yourself. You have not only a skill, but an art form....I hope you charge accordingly. Especially when they need it ASAP!!

    I have no idea how you do it all!

  3. I'm on the fiscal fast next week too!! In fact, I'm practising right now lol! No time to spend money though I bought some groceries, but that doesn't count!
    Glad you have some new little dancers. My daughter started Highland dancing at age 4 and kept going til she was 16 - then the need to have jobs in the summer prevented her from competing. We still both really miss her dancing days.
