I just picked up my car. I’m so happy to be rid of that hideous rental. My car looks great though. You can’t tell that the door was replaced. And they were nice enough to detail the inside of my car too. So, I now have my little yoga-mobile back. :)
I had a semi productive meeting with the Owner of EY last night. She gave me some good things to think about and I’m more hopeful than ever. She said she’d be happy to add a new tab to their scheduling program for just the Kids’ programs. Since I run them as Workshops, they aren’t very obvious. They can’t be added to the open schedule and otherwise the only way to find them on the website is to weed through massive amounts of workshops. I’m hoping that it will help make the classes a little more obvious.
She made me realize that I need to focus more on creating and running workshops rather than trying to get classes on the open schedule. Open classes are great, but they don’t pay nearly what workshops pay. And since this will be my only source of income, I need to focus on that. So, I will get creative and start putting it out there. She gave me a couple good ideas on scheduling for the kids’ classes over the summer that I’ll need to think about a little more.
Michele just wrote and asked how I felt about her going back to night shift after I quit. She gave me a long list of advantages, and they all sound wonderful. So, as long as it doesn’t interfere with her school and studying schedule, I think it might be a good change for a little while. I don’t know that I’ll have any classes starting before Noon anyway. And if I can run at least one workshop with good attendance a month, I’ll be ok money wise.
Otherwise, things seem to be moving along smoothly. I really need to get my taxes done. I’ve been back and forth a bunch of times about whether I should have an accountant do them or just do TurboTax again. At this point, I think TurboTax is my only option.
I’ve been sick for the past two weeks… it seems to be escalating and I feel as if I might lose my voice. This would not be a good thing. So, I’m resting my throat as much as possible.
I have tomorrow night off for Mich’s b-day. I was at a loss on what to get her as a present. Of course she said she doesn’t want anything. I settled on getting her framed pictures of Buster. I think that will make her happy. So, no yoga for me tomorrow night and I’ll get to spend time with her and her family.
