Some great news!

May 28th, 2008 at 05:40 pm

Like everyone else, my money is not stretching as far these days. My gas budget has doubled and my grocery bill is up at least 20%. Since all of my money is accounted for every month, this extra money has to come from somewhere and unfortunately, it is cutting into my savings.

Since I find that unacceptable and my efforts at cost-cutting are not making the grade, I have no option but to increase income. Soooooo....

I GOT ANOTHER JOB!!!!!!!!! It's for a 30% increase in pay which translates into an additional 15K per year. With my degree and years of experience I should be making about 10K more than that even but there's no point on dwelling on that. I hate that I didn't do this earlier and I am feeling some real anxiety about giving notice at my current job but I have to consider my retirement and my kids' college which is coming up at the speed of light.

However, I am thrilled and excited and so relieved. I hope this works out and I am looking forward to increasing my savings and retirement and killing off my remaining debt quickly. Yahooooo!!!!!
