Monday, horrible weekend!

Personal checking -300.09
Studio checking $172.10

     I received a phone call in August from a board of directors at a Children's Home in town.  They wanted the Irish dancers to perform at a dance Marathon for them October 27th.   It is a lot of work for me and for parents to get dancers ready with a one hour performance.   I have had to find alter and order more costumes.  Parents had to stay in town and leave soccer tournaments and Halloween parties and swim meets to get these kids ready.  We have worked for 2 straight months on their numbers.  I have not been easy on the younger ones as they had a lot to learn and perfect in very little time.  I also kept two of my young dancers one 11 and one 8 as their mother had to be out of town.  So I had to do hair and makeup in addition to all the other crap that goes with a major performance.

 It took me 2.5 hours to cut the music and make a couple master CD,s.  Anyway at 2:30 Saturday afternoon (two hours before we were to arrive at the venue)  I get a phone call from this drip that I had been dealing with for 6 weeks.  We are pulling the plug on the event because of lack of participation.  No one is here.....  No SH%% Sherlock, I told you two month's ago it was a dumb idea and you were spending way too much money on advertizing and you were very disorganized.  I had even called members of the board to warn them and they were leery but this girl is one of those all talk no do people.  I told her she had better be at the gates waiting as she was going to tell over 100 parents why the event was closing.

  Hubby told me to calm down and at least call the out of town students as it had been snowing all day on the prairies.  So we did and then I thought I had better call my 10 babies as they would really be upset to be all made up in costume and not be able to dance.  Then we formed a phone tree and called all 100 #'s.  Only 4 did not respond so I went up to the event and this drip meets me at the door and smiles and shakes my hand and say "You must be Kim"  I said yes and you had better be looking for a job Monday morning.  Was that too harsh?  So disappointing all that work and effort and now I am behind on Christmas choreography.

     I did not feel really good yesterday and I thought maybe it was just more mental strain, but last night I was running a high fever.  So miserable.  Judy you were right I have made myself sick.  I am on a Tylenol high right now.  Really achy flu, just miserable.  But B just called me from campus and she is also sick with this same bug.  So I know where I got it.  Joints are really affected.

     I just want to go to bed and stay there, but the shop phone has wrung all morning and customers are here every 10 minutes.  Lord knows I need the work.  Look at my checking account balance and I still need $500.00 to make the house payment and I will have to deduct the automatic insurance premiums if $250.00, so you can see that I must get at least $1100.00 to meet status quot.  That is possible but leaves nothing for gas and groceries.  So .how did this happen you ask?  Well remember last June when I said I was going to quit working at the cleaning contract.  We didn't stop but we did divert the money into college funds.  This is fine, but I had some savings and money coming in from other things and I was just not paying attention.  We really need that $1000.00 a month to keep our average bills paid every month.  I said I was going to take it out of the studio.  But I have not.  I have been paying off debt.  I just have to slow down.  I realize this now.  It took a couple of months for me to face reality.  I don't like it but it is what it is.

     Just got a call from my head Celtic teacher and she is very sick.  So I think we will all get this.  Hoorah!

Have a  great and productive day.  I am going to lie down......

    Many thanks.
