…a blogher recap is in the wraps.
…that I will announce the winner of my giveaway.
…I will share my awesome news!
…and some not so awesome news.
…that one of these days I will blog consistently – not having a desk job kind of gets in the way of that.
Here’s the post with the news…
I recently accepted a second job! This of course means I’ll be working 7 days/week but still not much more than 40-50 hours at least for now. That could change.
A colleague of mine informed me that a yoga studio she works at part time was looking for someone at the front desk a couple days per week. She asked if I was interested and I said SURE! So the other night, when I was at a Junior League event in South Norwalk, I got a call and she offered me the position.
Don’t you remember the days when you didn’t really need to interview jobs, people either liked you or they didn’t? I mean, I’ve met her before, I’m a big fan of her classes, and the studio in general so it’s not like she didn’t know who I was. I miss those days, and probably haven’t had one since in college at some point. Definitely miss those days.
A little extra money never hurt anyone. I explained it to my family the other day that it’s a sacrifice. Hubs and I really want to live a little more extravagantly than our means allow us to, and I want to work to pay off our debts so we get out of them eventually and live that extravagant life we both oh so long to lead. So in the mean time, I’m going to work my tail off to get us there. Just a sacrifice, not necessarily a long term lifestyle.
which brings us to …
Tuesday was primary day here in CT. I voted. In fact I ran up to the polls Tuesday AM. Go me? I think each candidate except for one lost. Wamp wamp.
Also, we’re moving. Likely to somewhere on the Gold Coast between Norwalk and Greenwich but it really depends on where hubs gets a new job. But with our 18.5% rent hike, we just can’t afford to stay here. But we’ll work on that in September.
One of those campaigns was the one that hubs was working on. Which means, his job ended. Which means, a new job search has begun. Which means, all spending has ended. No more eating out (not that we have been but I need to be a little more conscious of bringing my lunch), no more shopping (not that I’ve been buying anything lately), no trips to Vermont, Boston, DC, or NYC in the meantime.
Crappy yo. Thankfully he’s got some leads so this is only a temporary hiatus from other spending.
I do have to say, that our one year anniversary is in a month and I just hope and pray that we will have a bit more stability before then. Especially considering we’ve had a lot of instability in the past year.
