I Should be Happy That They Gave Me Another Client Today, But....

Having only had one client to see this morning I was going to go to the trailer when I finished to do some more work. Just got a call from the "new" scheduler to give me another client. So, my afternoon plans got sidelined. However, I will not gripe because I won't need to use my earned time to fill in the missing hours for my paycheck. But, I could have used the time to get more work done in my new home. Ugh.

eh, the work will still be there, and you saved the time, so could use that for time off later or something maybe

I still had to use 3 1/2 hours of earned time. Tomorrow will be another 3 1/2 hours.

@Jessicalynnt agreed! Only had one client yesterday. The second cancelled. I was sure that she would. That is how this one is. Told the scheduler that it happens often when she is out of money. She claims she has nothing for me to do, but clearly needs help with cleaning and won't allow me to do my job.

OH well hard to turn down a new client and especially if you can use that money. You will just have to work on the new home another day.

We are going to the trailer in a few minutes. We are taking the carpet out of the back bedroom so I can begin cleaning the room.

@Marcyaz I went to the trailer when I got home at 1:30. Washed the living room and kitchen walls. Tried to get the limescale out of the bathtub, but wasn't successful. Maybe I'll need a wire brush.

I should probably hold a tag sale and see if I can make some money on the treasures I am purging. That would help too, but not as much as a full paycheck.

@TiarasOceanView way too much work to be done with that. I am not willing to invest the time.

It's good news regarding your paycheck, but I know you want to get on with the work in your new home.

The work isn't going anywhere. I will go there after dinner and begin the task of cleaning the walls. My daughter will be there to help with the kitchen and the places I am too short to reach!

I hope she doesn't back out of it. I really need her to help with the kitchen.

Hubby rolled the old carpet up and tossed it outside. I then mopped the walls and floor. Tomorrow I will work on the closet. Have to remember my step stool so I can reach the shelf in the closet. At 5' 2" I can only reach so far.

Money is always better than work. I know you will get both jobs done!

I still have to use at least 3 hours of earned time so I'll have a decent paycheck. Tomorrow I only have 2 clients and will need to use another 3 hours.

We never seem to have enough time to do the things we need to do around the house but it's good that you got a chance to make up your paycheck

If I could just get a couple of full days in that would help tremendously.
