Monday, New goals

     I cannot believe it is almost the middle of the month.  Where did the time go?  I have been so busy with the wedding and the after wedding it seems like my life has spun out of control.  I can't say that it will get any better for a while either.

     The shop is very, very busy and I really have to pay attention and get things done and out.  I can't really see a break until the end of Sept. I just remembered something to put on the goals list.  I need to order airline tickets.  One trip to Sluggy's and the other to my nieces wedding.

     Two of the lights in my shop are malfunctioning. I don't know if it is the ballasts or it is the bulbs.  Hub's will look at them but I think I will have to call an electrician and replace the two fixtures and if I do I don't want them to be florescent.  I want just a simple bedroom fixture as when we sell the shop will be a bedroom.

     The problem with life right now is that I would like to ignore the house , the laundry, the dust, the yard, the garden and just sew and get caught up.  But unfortunately that cannot be done.  All I can do is take it one day at a time.

     Today it will be deal with the lights in the shop, get the laundry caught up and sew as much as possible.  I did get quite a bit done on the pile Friday before we left for the camp out.  There are still things left in the pile and I will do those first.  I hope to get at least two wedding dresses out today. That is my goal.

     I also want hubs and I to go through the kitchen and make a tic list of everything that has to be finished and see what we can do and what a professional has to do.  I figured if we just get an item a day done it will be finished before the end of the month.  We have the time to concentrate on this now.  At least Hub's does.

     Well while I was writing this post Hub's managed to get two of the florescent lights working in the shop.  But I will need to go and pick out new lights if I want him to replace them. He is a constant worry when he tries to fix something.  But I want him to do what he can. It saves us money and is good for his self esteem.

     I updated my $5.00 savings goal and I am at $1500.00 so far so that is great.  I will probably use it to try and pay the house off at the end. Also my penny savings needs $73.12 in it for the month of August.  So far I put in $40.00 for the month and I will put in the other $33.12 sometime this week.  This savings should be over $600.00 by December and again may be used to help with the final payoff on the house.

     Well I am off to get things done.  What are you going to try and accomplish today?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Kim

  3. It is almost 5 pm and I did little--went to bank and pharmacy and then to CVS. But, I need to cook the chicken, potatoes, wash hair and try to quit crying. I would keep the light bright in sewing room and worry about selling it,changing type of light then.

    1. You are right I will keep these until we sell. Good idea. Quit crying, make a plan and see what your options are.

  8. Wait! It's the middle of the month? That definitely went fast. Maybe your husband can figure out why the ice dispenser in the door of my freezer will only give me crushed ice, not cubes. No matter which button I turn on. It started three days ago, for no reason. I had left it on CUBE for years, but it has a mind of its own now.

    1. Dust behind the knob that registers cubes. Unplug wait 7-12 seconds plug back in. Reset the gizmo.
