Still going strong =)

Weather wise, there was a temp of over 75 degrees last Saturday and now we are back down to mid 40s-50s. Craziness... lol

Where are you in VA??  We are on spring break and teh snow is coming down and supposed to continue until 6pm tomorrow...oh joy!

I haven't put this week's $$ in the till yet....have other things keeping me disctracted, like...when I figured out the time and such for making all the flags the principal wants, reducing my hourly rate to $10/hr instead of the normal $15/hr....means that, for my time alone, they will be paying $878.30!!  Then there's the fabric and threads needed....but just for my time!!!  I sent him an email with the information, but again, it's spring break, so I don't know if he will get the email or not.  If not, I'll take the invoice in when the kids return to school....the lowest I can go is $8/hr, which is what DH suggested, but that seems way too little when it will be taking time away from things I need to be doing around the house....at any rate, it will be nice if this all works out as I can add it to my stash....still haven't figured out what the money will go towards, but thinking it might be for next year's tuition for DS {sigh}
