As Norma counts down to her debt free life (YAY and congrats), my time in my higher pay job winds down. I've been working temporarily in a different position helping to close down the business. I have my other job to go back to - but I really don't want to do that. It is much less pay and the title isn't as impressive. I am not trying to flippant but I have learned that being a "director" means more than being a "manager" regardless of the work itself. No, I'm not a director but I once was before baby.
I have been going to school FT, working FT, keeping my healthy lifestyle (food and exercise), fitting in time w/the kids AND looking for a new position. I'm so tired of it. All the covering letters and applications take time. I've sent out 35 applications and gotten 5 responses. This means I had to write proposals, exams, etc before I get the interview. I've only gotten 3 interviews - this one proposal due Mon so I might get that interview too. This lastest proposal will quite probably take me 15 hours!
But I have to keep reminding myself that every one of these jobs are way better than any I have ever had. IE, they are worth it. I can't give up, right?
In monetary terms, we are back on budget. We are also building up a large EF, have next month's vacation money put aside and even started saving for our summer vacation. When I say "vacation" it is within few hours drive, in off peak times for the cheapest I can find, LOL. But all work and no play.....I don't want to live that way :)
