Earned half an airfare today

August 6th, 2008 at 07:53 pm

I earned half an airfare for our Mexico trip today. It felt nice to work. This is my first project since Baby Bean came along. It was so nice to do brainy adult things rather than baby sit all day. I love Beaner but he wears me out! A change of pace was nice.

The fact that it was a lucrative change of pace that will get me and the hubby one step closer to travel is even better.

I am working tomorrow and Friday as well, which means I will earn about one and a quarter airfares this week. It's fun to think of it like that!

Also, I just finished reading a very helpful book. "How to Raise a Family on less than two incomes."

I read a lot of personal finance books so it takes something good to keep my attention. This one spoke to me because it's for people in my situation. Not full timers, but earning something, just not something steady. It was so helpful I may actually buy a copy for reference.

    Thanks for the book reference.

    Not that my husband has earned tons since we have had the kids, but we figure for the last few years him working full-time would have brung in a take-home of $0k-$12k after daycare and taxes and such. We always thought, why work full-time for pennies? Couldn't he just work part-time or on the side instead? It just makes more sense on many levels.

    I am curious to check out the book.

    Congrats on earning so much airfare!

    Yep. After taxes and daycare, I'd be in the same boat. I net more working part time on projects and taking advantage of free grandma babysitters!
