A Special Treat For Me, or How I Make My Money
I loved it and made tons and tons of money by working very little!
But now I don't have either one of those jobs, but I have a job I love..........cutting up fabric and sewing ti back together again in my own little room. And sometimes with friends. I'll bet you wonder how I am making money now to keep myself in fabrics and fun stuff like patterns and rulers and organizational supplies....(believe that?)
Here is my secret. I collect the money from the washer and dryer and put it into a large container atop the dryer. About every month, when it gets full, I count it out and use it to buy something special that we normally would not get. Something decadent and special. Because this is my money I get to spend it entirely on me! (Or a favorite dog perhaps.)
When Carrie was home I collected more, but I still do OK now. Frank usually uses dollars and pockets the change. He rarely digs change out of his pocket.
So I counted up the container in the laundry room today. It was pretty full. There was even a freshly laundered dollar bill in there!
Check back tomorrow and see how much I made and what great and exciting thing I will do with the money!
Dreaming....... yards of the fabric from Riley Blake, a new car, the cruise through the Panama Canal we are looking at for next year..........oh, how fantastic. Or, I can save it for my second million!
