Again sorry for being so sporadic here. I am moving next week and hoping that I will get settled and on a schedule.

So I had a great time in Trinidad. You may remember that I used my points to buy the flight and I stayed with a friend so the whole trip cost abot $300!!

When I came back work was in chaos as usual. It has been getting to me for a while but with all the other changes (exBF, moving etc) it was the bottom of my priority list.

Well, a large company in my field came calling! Their HR department came after me, and without getting into too many details . . . I start a new job in 3 weeks!!! It will  be a 10% increase in salary, a company car (which means insurance and gas covered) and killer benefits! I'm so excited! With the proceeds of the house and now the potential selling of my car (when I get the company car) I may be able to get myself out of debt (with the exception of the mortgage).

Now all I have to do is get through the move . . .

Wow, now these changes I like! Trinidad for $300??? That is so cool! Head hunted!! Also cool!

Two pieces of advice. Don't sell the car until you are feeling  100% with this new job. When you do sell the car and pay it off, I suggest, because of your lifestyle, why not put the payment into a high interest saving account like one of your sinking saving ING accounts for things that come up like ummm I dunno....lol(you know you love me) a new car, a new bike, school, a new dog, a vacation, or a renovation. Then you will be ready!

Good luck with all your changes. It is great to "hear" you happy!
