Vacation Fund & Possible Job Loss & Gain

June 12th, 2019 at 08:07 am

Husband has been working 7 days a week and will probably continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The good news is that this means that I believe our vacation fund is complete! I haven't sat down and run the numbers yet, but we have been booking our lodging. Hopefully this weekend I will have concrete figures. Might even have some left over for other goals.

He also applied for his dream job. It's a government job so he had to go take a test to apply, which he got an A on. I think that guarantees him an interview but I'm not 100%. Crossing our fingers and hoping that he will get it. It would not have much impact on our fiances (might actually loose money) but it will improve his mood and working conditions ten fold. So would appreciate any good thoughts and prayers that he gets it.

In sadder news, my web design boss called me yesterday and said that business has been down, and that all the other workers have taken new jobs. Frown So he is probably going to dissolve the company. Crazy since I have been working a ton, but I guess only me. We have one more big project to do, and of course loose ends to tie up. We may continue working together a bit (the original company was just me and him) or he may just turn all the current maintenance accounts over to me. He is still processing and figuring stuff out.

I am unsure how that is going to affect my income and goals for the year. I will still have a bit of income from maintenance every month, and also I pick up side projects, and work for another company fairly often. But I'm guessing my hours will drop substantially. Thankful we don't depend on that income, but it sure was nice to use to it to pay down debt.

Lots of stuff to figure out, and lots of balls up in the air right now.

    Change is hard - especially unexpected change like to your web design job. I hope that you're able to pick up another client or that the business takes a turn for the better. And good luck to your husband!

    Sorry about the job. Hopefully things work out for you.

    Wouldn't that be terrific if you husband gets his dream job!
