Windows & Jobs

The windows ended up being almost spot on to my original estimate. $2,900 for the 3 doors, and 2 windows.

We decided to forgo the main back door, and just get the essentials for now. So the total bill is $1,900. We will keep shopping around for the door. But honestly that is the cheapest I've found, for an installed door of that quality, which has everything we want. I might trying purchasing a new door knob and seeing if I can rig up a way to make it close for now.

I put the down payment on the credit card, and have $1,000 which I need to deposit and pay the credit card with. Will have to scheme up a way to come up with the other $900, especially since I'm worried my checks won't be enough to cover bills, let alone extra.

Anyway. Business is still super slow, and I'm getting worried. I did send in the application for the vet job. And my old job is begging me to come back. (Still haven't found a permanent replacement since January.)

Lots to think about. Husband does not want me to go back to old job. It was very stressful and draining on me. The job its self wasn't bad, but I had so much "extra" work to do, and I had to work several evenings, come in on my days off, get called at home, etc. I felt like I never got away from it.

IF I did consider going back, I'd have to sit down and have a heart to heart with the boss. About what I would and WOULDN'T be doing. I'd have to make a list, and lay down the law at the beginning. I just can't go back to that much stress again.

We'll see. Hoping the vet job calls back. From what I understand they are giving interviews to everyone that applied, before deciding. Hopefully I have a good chance since I did work as a receptionist/secretary for 3.5 years, and I have very good references from all my bosses.

Still pushing on the house. I caulked/painted another window. And also the outside of all of the windows. I'm not sure what happened but when I looked at my painted window yesterday, it had 3 cracks in it. Frown It definitely didn't crack as I was painting it. So I'm wondering if the caulk didn't stress it as it dried or something. Bummer. Now I'm kind of scared to do the others.

Also working on the kitchen archway. That's a big project. 9 boards to cut, sand, stain, seal, and hang. Yikes.

    Is your internship over?

    I would follow my gut about the old job. In general, I believe it is never a good idea to go back to something that didn't work in the first place.
