Tuesday Treasure Trove


Things of Note:

Not going to lie, I am pretty stressed this week. One of my design clients was supposed to have a sizable paycheck waiting for me when I got back from my trip to Ohio, had in fact directly said as much. Two weeks later, and no sign of said paycheck. No answer to my email last week, no answer to my phone call yesterday. And it’s stressing me out. When I expect to be paid by X date, and client agrees to X date, I then plan my budget/finances around having that money by X date (or at least near it). When it is suddenly not there and continues to not be there, bank account levels can get scary. I am going to call again later today, and every day until I get that paycheck. I hate having to turn into a nag in order to get paid, but if that’s what it takes to get what is owed, I’ll do it.

On a happier note, my new workout plan is still going strong, and I’m actually not getting sore the day after anymore, which is nice. Also, Ian & I had a really good weekend full of friends and good food and doing things outside of the house. And Sienna is, as ever, adorable. So it’s definitely not all Debbie-downer over here. 🙂

How’s your week going?


  1. Oh no, sorry about your design client! I know how that goes :\
    i never do a job without full payment first due to idiots screwing me around. when your bills depend on it, it’s not funny!

    1. I usually do 50% as a deposit, and the rest at project end. Usually if the client is willing to pay a deposit, they’re not the type to cut and run. I even got the deposit on this particular project! I’m hoping there’s just something else going on, like in his personal life (it’s a one-guy operation) and he’s not purposefully trying to evade payment.

  2. I was watching an episode of Law and Order: SVU and this woman in New York was on the subway and this guy managed to rape her in a subway car full of people. I know it’s fiction but still, I bet things like that happen. Totally freaks me out and makes me happy I own a car and live in the ‘burbs.

    And I really hope that your client gets that check to you, that would really freak me out as well.

    P.S. You’ve been mentioned on my blog post today! Once again I apologize for the Blogging Besties mix up!
