This journal is wonderful BUT last night I sat here reading everyone's journal and the archive articles - only got to bed at 01:30am and was like a bear with a sore head this morning - I have been grumpy all day. So on top of managing this debt reduction and cancellation project I need to make sure that I get enough sleep. You know you can end up with a situation that you spend so much time reading, researching and getting organised that you don't "do" stuff. That is one of the reasons I didn't get to finish my goals for yesterday.
I import training materials from the United Kingdom and am running a training programme tomorrow for a big client of mine. Well today, the materials still hadn't been delivered by Fedex - guess what - customs and excise are holding my shipment so off to the copy shop with a manual I had left over from another program. What a waste of money - ugghhh - If am really honest though I wasn't as organised as I should have been - I placed my order late
Had to run out to the store for breakfast cereal (I didn't shop with a list yesterday) but did this when I went to the copy shop. Who was talking about being organised in their journal - seems that I need the same discipline
Good news though: paid the monthly amount due on school fees using internet banking and delivered the proof of payment to the school secretary - so that is done.
Was waiting the past 5 days for a debit to go off my checking account to pay one of my CC's but nothing happened - checked my bank account while paying the school account and found that it had gone through - YEAH I have more money left than I thought.
Should be able to meet my goal of paying off $1500 my CC this month.
Made soup last night - enough to feed an army - my daughter is not going to be impressed - chicken and vegie soup is NOT her idea of a fun meal. Well guess what? That is what we are having for supper tonight with fresh bread. Will let you know what happens.
Emma (my 5 yr old daughter) managed to lose her jacket and school hat last week and I threatened her with taking money out of her bank account to pay for new ones - you have no idea how that motivated her to find them. She found the hat yesterday and the jacket today - amazing
Really need to get going today - I am feeling so flat - no energy at all.
Goals for today:
Cut out sewing order
Pack materials in car for training program tomorrow
Start preparing personal tax file
Company - file invoices, receipts, shipping documents etc
Review budget to see if I can find a saving for today
Exercise for 30 minutes
Take care everyone - see ya tomorrow
