More Progress & 2nd Job?

September 18th, 2015 at 06:32 am

So I did get the windows painted.

I stopped in the window company to push them along. They couldn't give me the final estimate but they did give me a price on the windows and also a rough estimate. It comes out way cheaper than I was expecting. It looks like it will be around $2k for all the doors and 2 downstairs windows. Whereas I was initially thinking it would be $3k. I'll know more when they send me a written estimate.

Husband wants to go ahead with the windows. After payday I'll have $500, and my parents are giving $500 to count as an early Christmas present. The other $1,000 we'll have to come up with. But we do have the LOC open if we need it. It will take about a month to get them in, so it's possible to come up with some of the money before then.

Husband and I have sat down and talked, and we also went into the bank and looked at our options. We had a heart to heart with what we really want. We have decided to forgo a truck at this time. Husband will probably purchase another cheaper Jeep around 3k.

We are going to make a large push and try to get as much finished on the house as we can. Then we hope to get the ball rolling in the spring/summer with the addition, and refinance, etc. We have decided we would rather have the addition than a truck, and also after talking with the banker it will only add an additional $100 - $200 to our monthly payment if we can get it done at the price we are shooting for.

We will see how it pans out. Lots that has to happen first.

Also, a position has opened at the local vet for a part time receptionist. I'm seriously considering applying. It would give me some stable additional income, and also I'd get out of the house a couple days a week, and get to work with animals. Win win. I'm practically family there anyway, lol. Feels like I'm there every week.

Husband doesn't want me to work a 2nd job. But I don't work many hours now anyway, so I don't feel like I will be overworking myself. Besides if business picks up and it gets to be too much, I can always quit later.

Anyway, I will talk to the boss. And maybe put an application in. If I get it, great, if not, no big deal. We'll see.

    It sounds like the second job is worth a try at least. Good luck!
