Sunday, Happy New 2012

     This is the year people.  I can feel it.  We are all going to make great things happen.  So many of us are close to paying off even a little debt and that will help us into the next one.  It is coming.... financial freedom.

     Rec'd the power bill for the studio and it was $195.00 (last year it was over $400.00)  But I paid to have a furnace man come down and set the thermostat.  Heat goes up to 68 at 2:30 p.m.and back to 55 at 8 p.m.  Monday through Friday.  This is great news!(last year it was $460.00)

     Rec'd my power bill and it was $265.00 which is really good for this time of year.  I am sure next month it will be higher as we turned the heat up when the baby was here.

     We had a prime rib dinner at friends and I am so full.  The studio opens tomorrow, I know it is a holiday for some, but we have a show to put on in 10 weeks and that will come up fast.  We have not put anything away or cleaned out the costume closet , so  youngest daughter and I are going to go down at 10 tomorrow morning and gut it out.  Studio opens at three.  Back on the fast track.  Remember less stress!

     The last 8 weeks before Christmas I was trying to add in Jr. High rehearsals (won't be doing that again) and combine several classes for the 12 Days show.  Now I can just concentrate on my classes without, running between schools.  I have also moved the advanced ballet out of the college and back to the studio.  Also less running and more control. I will feel more in touch with the students as I will not be calling in substitutes.  The classes will be mine alone.

     I need to pay a few last minute bills, balance both check books and set up new files for the new year.  Also taxes will be going to the accountant before the end of the month.  Ugh!  Still have not compiled a list of goals, just can't decide what I really can accomplish and I don't want to throw a whole lot of stuff out there and then watch myself flounder.  I flounder so well.  Daughter and I are going to watch a movie.

Have a wonderful 1st day of 2012, it will only get better after this!



  1. I agree I can feel it in the air! We are all going to do well. Remember not to sress....and no overworking!!!!! Don't think we wont come find you and yell at you if you do!
