Good News All Around!

April 3rd, 2017 at 03:34 pm

Lots of good news this week!!

Start with the small things. I sold a goat and put that $350 in the animal fund. I sent $250 to my Roth.

Taxes are supposed to be deposited into my account this week for $450 that I will send to the Roth.

Puppy money continues to come in. I upped the vacation fund goal another $500 to give us more wiggle room for fun things.

I am owed $467 for client work. Not sure where I will use this yet.

FINALLY got husband's yearly profit sharing statement. (It is dated December 2016, geez) They contributed over $4,000 this year. So we are now at $10,662 in our account and 80% vested. Husband is worried that means there will be no raises again this year... But we'll see. Hopefully not. It is nice that his employer is contributing more than we are to retirement.

I was brave and asked for a $5 hourly raise from one of my design clients. I got it!

The web design company I work for mainly also mentioned giving me a $10 a hour raise in the near future as soon as funds allow. Big Grin That means I would be making 3 times the amount per hour than my secretary job... Which brings me to my next point. I asked to reduce my hours to take Tuesdays off permanently. They said okay. Smile

Addition is still on hold due to weather. But it feels nice that my income streams are slowly growing. I am feeling more confident that we can meet most of our goals this year.

My real big picture goal is to get paid enough an hour than I can work less hours and devote more time to living life and enjoying my hobbies, mainly farming.

The only bad news this week is that I have 4 bottle baby goats which need fed every 4 hours, day and night. I also have to get up an hour early to milk goats so I can feed said babies. Which is really hurting my sleep schedule.

Overall a very good week financially.

    Lots of good news, that's for sure.

    Sorry about those bottling feeding goats, How long do you have to do this?

    Terrific news, particularly in requesting to reduce hours in one job and a higher hourly rate from a client in another. Sounds like you're making progress on all fronts. Profit sharing sounds good, how does that affect taxable income? I don't envy you having to bottle feed the goats [kids?] every 4 hrs. So disrupting to sleep at night and work all day.

    Are you having ghastly weather too? While we were having intermittent flurries most of yesterday, I was downright shocked to see real snow on the ground this AM. It's enough already, I want to see spring consistently.
