Tuesday, making progress.

     Well I was able to send $3000.00 to our credit card yesterday, all with the tax refund.  I still feel like I have so far to go, but I am making progress.  I know that I will be able to make at least a $1000.00 payment from the studio after all the March bills are paid.  I also know that Hubby has one extra paycheck this month.  So that will be socked on.  Now between, recital fees which should come in at about $700.00 and costume fees at at least $700.00 I should be close to a payoff.  Without touching my savings or emergency fund.  (Sluggy and Little Lamb threatened me with bodily harm if I touched either.  Now we know that Little Lamb was probably bluffing as she raises bunnies, but Sluggy will live up to her name!)  Anyway it is nice to dream.

     I opened up the visa bill from the moves last month and it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought.  I had brought at least $500.00 in cash on each trip and I had spent cash while there, I also brought at least $200.00 home each time, so my CC was not as bad as I thought and I will have the money to cover these expenses.  My payroll will also be down at the studio this month by a few hundred dollars.

     I put together the ghost skirt yesterday and the teacher loved it so I need to make 6 more with sashes. I think my daughter will help me next week with the Celtic show as it is spring break for her and I know she needs the money.  I have a ton of yard work for her to do! Yippee!

     Out My Window:  It is so sunny today!  Just marvelous, I bet it reaches 65 on the back porch.  I am getting planting fever.

     One of my long time sewing customers is ill and she has to give up her bed to put in a hospital bed so they are coming to get our truck and she is having the bed brought over here.  We will take it up to Daughter as she needs another bed and has been looking to buy a new one.  It looks like she may have a room mate lined up.  What a blessing.  I am not sure yet if it is just a bed or a whole bedroom set.  But even the bed is a big bonus.  I know the mattress and box spring will be top of the line.  This is also great as I have all my medical treatment where daughter lives and her dad and I will have a nice bed to sleep on!

     Well I have plenty to do today, so I had better get busy.  Still feeling a little shaky, but so much better.

Have a great and productive day!




  1. How wonderful that you're able to put the bed to good use!

  2. Wohoo! You are getting so close! I can't wait until we have 65 F outside. I already bought some seeds for our garden...

  3. Glad to hear you are feeling better,hopefully after a good night sleep you will be back to good in the morning.

    Don't call my bluff! I'll warn you now... I may have cute, adorable, little bunnies but I'm in the military too! ;)

    Glad to hear you are doing so well on that credit card and without touching that savings!!! See, you CAN do this!

  4. That's tremendous progress on the ol' credit card Kim!! I think Little Lamb is tougher than you think - she kicked her debt to the curb! All by her self...well...and a few bunnies:)
