Friday, Money is finally all in!

     I keep messing with the blog lay out and I like this better, I guess I am a creature of habit.

    I finally received that last of my tuition, recital fees, and costume fees, plus a late charge yesterday!  I also went to several students and asked them specifically if they were doing the summer workshop.  If I did not get at least 10 enrolled, I was going to cancel.  I am no longer going to lose money on ventures down there.  Now I don't have to make money (it would be nice) but I will break even.

     I also made a lovely chicken curry yesterday and I am going to do a Taco salad today.  Just trying to cook more as I have been so lax lately.  We also bought a few garden plants last night, but I really need to spend time weeding, before I even think about planting.

     So I am going to get some sewing done and try to figure out the garden and my strategy for yard clean up.  When I work on a strategy I don't actually have to do the work.  I just think. :)

     On  better note:  I do have over $800.00 in my savings account for vacation.  May it stay there.  We do get paid next Thursday and I will have an extra $400.00 if the shop does well and people pick up I will not have to spend that.  So I am hoping by the end of the month to have at least $1200.00 of the $2700.00 saved for vacation and extra bills.  I also forgot that I will receive about a $400.00 check from the college at the end of May so that will help.  I will also get back some of the $500.00 cleaning deposit from B's apartment, but don't know when that will come.

     I am going to take care of my grandson the first week in June, so that means I will not be earning any money.  This will only give me the last three weeks of June and I will also have 2 workshops that will take me out of the shop in the mornings.  But if I can pull another $1000.00 out of these and use the extra money from the cleaning check, I will be able to make my goal.  Goals are easy to set and hard to see through.  Something always happens.

      Out My Window:  Cooler but still nice,  actually better to work in than hot!

Well I am off to storm the castle!



  1. Wonderful! It sounds like this will be a great summer financially for you with the shop paid up and vacation money in savings. You totally deserve it!

  2. thats great that you the vacation money saved up, sounds like the financial goals are coming together.

  3. Yes, I'm a real whiz at SETTING goals, it's keeping on the straight and narrow to see them through to fruition that's the hard part, dang it all!
