Today is your day

I have no idea, but I’ve got this feeling that today’s either going to rock and completely suck. No middle ground. That just totally bites, doesn’t it?

We did figure out some good news: rent will technically be coming out of the next paycheck. The next paycheck is going to be a decent size (1 day off each week, plus Sunday extra pay). *sweet* That just works out perfectly. That means we can keep money in the savings account, and have a buffer. That means if the computer decides to completely bite the dust, we’re going to be okay 🙂 I like that. That makes me feel a lot better.

Josh called at about 11:30 this morning. He was just starting his route. Everyone had a lot of mail, and I mean a lot. He started at the same time as most of the regulars, so it’s not because he’s slow. He called while he was filling up the LLV (mail truck). He started at 7:45, and he told them (Jayhawk Station) straight-up that he was going to need assistance. The guy who’ll be helping him out said that he most likely won’t catch him until after 5. They have to be back at the station by six for the mail pick-up. That means he’s definitely getting overtime today (5:15 would be 10 hours, including his 1/2 hour lunch). Holy damn!! If he works past 6, he gets even more money, for working “evening”.

Tomorrow is his day off. Since we’ve got our buffer, if he wants to go out and do something, we can (like buy actual day-to-day tennis shoes). I’m totally cool with that.

Speaking of shoes, I got me some new ones yesterday: Athletic Works 7000 Jogger. They’re light grey and dark purple, with white. GORGEOUS!! And totally me (curved toe, comfy, etc). We got Madi a new pair of sandals. We realized that her shoes were a size too small, so we got her a pair that were on clearance. Brown and strappy and ADORABLE!! We also found her shoes for the wedding. I found a pair I liked, in white, but the smallest size was a size 11. She’s a size 8/9 (depending on the shoe), so that wouldn’t work. Got those for super-cheap! Ethan also got a pair of shoes for the wedding. We got him some adorable penny loafers. They’re the same exact pair I found the day I got his outfit for it, and they still look perfect!! I can’t wait for Julie to see them.

One Day at a time

Every day it seems like there’s more drama in life. Someone decides to make a fool of themselves. Thankfully, I’ve learned to just let it run off my back, like water on a duck’s back. It’s ridiculous though how little of a life some people have, so little that they have to harrass people. Pathetic, actually. Oh well, at least I have some semblence of a life, and don’t have to resort to harrassment.

In other news, I’m going to be working on more of my Dirty Dancing icons. Figured out why PSP was saying they’re invalid files (the caps). It’s because PowerDVD saves as BMP. Well, I wanted them to save as JPG or PNG, and it didn’t want to do that, and messed with how the files are saved. Fix the file name, and *boom* works again 🙂 Is there a particular scene you’d like to see iconed?

Today’s plans are tags for today, hopefully some for the shop, maybe a tube set (we’ll see how that goes), and maybe another WP theme. 🙂 We’ll see how that works out. Are you a theme collector? What type or design would you like to see?

Josh is at work right now. He’s got 2 more expresses to deliver and he’s done, I think, XD. He went in at 8:45 am. That means just a couple hours of Sunday pay, but that’s about $23.50 for the hours, so, ha ha, so worth it!! He’s gotta be in at 7:45 tomorrow. He’s got the Jayhawk ghetto route (we did ghetto, this is ghetto). He’s got Tuesday off though. That day will be spent getting him new tennis shoes. His current ones reek of cat markings, though they’ve never been marked o.O Figure that one out.

Good Morning

Howdy! Nothing much is going on. Gotta work on tags for yesterday (wasn’t near the computer except for like 5 minutes looking for a recipe) and today 🙂

Josh might or might not be off. We’ll see if they call him back, XD

Welp, off to create.

Setting Prices

Something I’m having a problem with: setting prices in my shop.
I don’t know what’s too expensive. What’s too cheap. What’s just right.

Suggestions on cost? I’d like to actually, you know, make some money. 🙁 I haven’t really made any, but I don’t want to close. I want to stay open, but it’s getting hard to keep it going with more money going towards memberships and the like because my ass sucks at making items.

So, any suggestions would be wonderful!!

Good Morning

Well, the kids let me sleep in. That was a good thing. I’m still absolutely exhausted, but I got some sleep that I desperately needed, :lol:. Then again, I was awake with Josh, until I fell back asleep. And then I was back up at 8am to turn off my cell alarm. I don’t care if sleeping in screws up a schedule, I needed to sleep.

Plans for today:
1. Laundry
2. Dishes
3. Tags for members
4. Tags for shop
5. Upload shop updates
6. Relax

Which of those 6 do you think isn’t going to happen? If you guessed #6, you’re probably exactly right. We’ll see though.
