Wednesday, Oh my debt runneth over

Personal Account -$662.00
Studio $202.00

     I received the Visa bill for last month and I knew it would be bad.  But it was awful!  I will need $1947.00 to reach status quote on my personal card.  This is not counting the studio card.  I do have about $1000.00 put away for Mom's party charges but I have to come up with the rest.  I had better get to work!  I don't like the total but I will pay it plus the $250.00 regular payment so I don't go backwards.  This is tough.

     Slow and steady sometimes seems like a stand still.  I made a large deposit yesterday and it covered all the payroll and paid back the savings.  I hope to make a large deposit today.  The house is cleaned except for mirrors and vacuuming.  Which I will try to do today.  Last night I had a lot of extra work to do at the bank and hubby could not help me.  I was very tired.  Ran a lower fever about 10 p.m. but could not sleep.  Even with sleep meds I did not get to sleep until after 2:30 and then woke up at 7:00.  Crawled back in bed
and just got up  but did not really go into deep sleep.  I hate not sleeping worst than anything.

     The shop is really busy and I am grateful for that. But I must be really careful these next three months.  I want to go on a vacation with Hubby in July and I will need to get caught up.  So much for paying anything off.  Still I am closer.  Every month I am closer.

Out My Window:  Cold and overcast.

     Carla had a good post on Luck.  I always beleive we make our own luck.  Lief Erickson or "Lief the Lucky" as he was called is where we get the term for luck.  He would sail the world and always return.  He was considered lucky, but in reality, he was a good sailor.  He studied charts and stars and weather.  He avoided storms and always tried to sail known routes.  Most of his luck was practice and hard work and choices.
     I consider myself lucky in the fact that I did have the opportunities to learn the skill set I have.  I had a great mom that taught me a strong work ethic.  I came from a family that prized education.  We were not wealthy, but I had lessons, was able to get college degrees.  I worked hard to become a good teacher, I have spent years becoming a professional seamstress.  I beleive I have made my own luck in many ways.

     I heard from Sluggy, she is quite sick, but on the mend.  Please go wish her well, and keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Have a great and productive day!

  2. I do hate surprises when it comes to what I'm spending... I'd rather know, even if I am very over, than be surprised with a balance. Vacation in July sounds fun! Definitely something to work towards to.
