Silver Lining

Personal Finance

Personal Finance (Photo credit: 401K)

Been working a lot, but the good thing about that is a) making lots of money, and b) no time to spend it.  LOL

Actually, that’s good because I’m paying off my debt.  My only other expenses really are food, gas (and I work in town, so not much spent there), and of course rent.

My overhead is low and I’m putting in a lot of hours.  This past week I worked 64 hours, and this upcoming week I’ll be working 60.  I basically eat, sleep, and work.

But it will all pay off in the end.

Sorry, I don’t get on here much to update lately.  Working three jobs totaling 74 hours a week.  But at least I’m able to pay my bills.  All my “spare” time gets devoted to sleeping.  Haven’t spent time with Jessica in forever.  But at least my finances are getting caught up, and I’m putting money aside for a) summer with Connor, b) moving in with Jess, and c) the wedding.

Coffee and Pasta

Today I’ve been extremely productive, knocking things off my to-do list and getting housework done.  And I owe it to a steady diet of carbs and caffeine.

Since yesterday, all I’ve eaten has been spaghetti, and all I’ve had to drink was coffee.  I’ve moved non-stop, in a relaxed, yet steady pace, getting things accomplished.

I guess it also means that I’m adjusting to the sleep schedule for my new job.  Which is good, since I’m about to have about 28 more hours added on.

Perhaps some of my ambition can be attributed to my boost in income, thus allowing me the finances to carry out some of my agenda, even if it’s the little things like groceries and cleaning supplies.  Of course, I’m broke right now….oh, except I get paid in 12 hours again!!!  My money actually lasts until I get more money.  I haven’t had this happen in a while, but then I haven’t been able to rely on a regularly scheduled paycheck in a while.  And of course, all the time I spend working means time I’m not spending money.  LOL.

And it also helps that I actually enjoy my job.  It’s busy, yet not stressful.  Lots of things to keep me busy and I get to work in an environment where I’m meeting new people all the time and getting to help them and make their day better.  It’s pretty cool.

OK, so I met another goal for today, which was to post a blog on this site with an update on what’s going on.  Check!
