Today I got a couple more cleaning jobs lined up for the month of July. Additionally, a client I cleaned for a couple of weeks ago was really nasty to me over the weekend about the rate I charged (even though it's a rate set by the club, not by me, and he'd already agreed to that rate before I did the job), but he said my check was mailed out today, so that's good. I need that money so badly. By the time it gets here it will have been over two weeks since I did that stupid cleaning. I'm also going to be working at school a little bit this week. I looked at my July calendar and I think I will have enough jobs to be able to pay my bills during the month of July. Usually I'm so overwhelmed with cleanings in the summer that I'm making tons of money. I expected it to be that way again. I was really expecting that I could get caught up on bills this summer, but now I'm just hoping I can make what I typically do in a week. This is turning out to be such a strange summer. Usually, summer is such a welcomed relief. This year, I've just been overcome with stress and worry. I haven't really been able to fully enjoy myself, and I can't really make any plans to do anything because I need to keep my calendar free in case I get called in to sub, or get called for a cleaning job. It's just so weird this year. But I suppose things could be much, much worse. I do have seven cleaning jobs lined up for July and I'm sure I'll be subbing in July here and there as well.
I went to the library this morning, to my two banks, and then to the grocery store. At the library, I checked out a whole bunch of books about floorplans and design ideas. I think I'm going to give myself a moment to let the fact that I have some work ahead of me sink in, and then I'm going to pour myself a glass of wine and curl up with my books. It's a good afternoon to daydream.
