We are supposed to get a good amount of snow- I heard 4-8 inches.
I would LOVE a good snowstorm; we are overdue for a good blizzard.
Taxes are done and I'm as confident as I can be about my job stability going forward....this is a huge relief. A massive relief.
And so I need to keep conserving and chip away at the financial mountains of dance and braces and Life in General. Dance is killing me a bit because tuition went up a lot last October and I don't know certain costs up-front, like competition fees- how much and when. Recital is here too, more $$.
And that stupid basketball game she is required to perform at in April that I DON'T WANT TO GO TO but I am required to purchase tickets for me AND Daya...$66. I'm really peeved about that.
How LOUDLY can I express that I DON'T WANT TO GO TO OR PAY FOR A STUPID BASKETBALL GAME?
I need a dance sponsor for Daya. :(
That has to be how people do this- when their kids show real promise and they work crazy-hard in the arts. If the family is not well-off they must have someone financially backing them.
But I think for the most part people who excel in the arts or go into that world as kids come from money. This stuff costs money- a lot- and that's unfortunately what it all boils down to. I'm drowning. I'm holding up a mountain with a toothpick.
Since Daya is a crazy over-achiever I don't know how I can say no or cut back...she's holding up her end. I can't argue with straight As in honors. She's also excelling in all her dance classes. She is incredibly driven. I can't take something away that she really is working so hard for.
I have no pictures except for these nice pink clouds from the other day that look like cotton candy.
