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?
