Running out the door to measure windows, pick up blinds, install them, and then back to the house to work on the program for our community theater production of “Little Women,” figure out my quarterly sales tax return so that I can file it electronically before midnight tomorrow night (I always seem to hit the transmit button at 11:48 p.m. the night it’s due — one time it went through at 12:01 a.m. and cost me an additional $85 in late fees — argh!)
Exciting things that have happened — our homeschool co-op found a new home (the facility we used last year was not available to us this year and we were getting worried thinking we would be “homeless”!) We went to see another community theater group’s production of “The Scarlet Pimpernel” Sunday afternoon — it was fabulous and I have serious costume envy . . . this theater group’s been around since 1943 and is well-established. I discovered that last season they did “Cinderella” and spent $10,000 on COSTUMES ALONE. Our budget for our first production (“Little Women”) is $8,000 TOTAL. Well . . . we’ll get there!
My Cutco knives came in. They were ridiculously expensive, but so beautiful and so sharp and my old knives were so useless . . . well, my guy convinced me it was okay . . . so yeah, it will take 5 payments (I still have 4 to go) to pay for them, but they have a forever guarantee and so I guess it’s okay. I plan on enjoying them!
I’ve gotta’ run for now — I hope this little crumb of an update will keep ya’ll until I can hop back on for something more entertaining! Hugs to all!
