Hubs and I officially have turned in our notice at the bank! We will no longer be cleaning after June 30th. It is funny but I just got this wild hair feeling over a week ago that I was just done. I don't want to do this anymore. The money we make does not even affect our budget as it goes right to daughters college account. My accountant told me I would owe taxes next year and B's award letter was about $2000.00 less on grant money. So earning this extra $6000.00 a year is really a wash. Why are we doing it? It is always hanging over our heads and I am so tired by this time of day. Why now?
I think first of all I did not trust my self not to need the money. Remember two summers ago when we cut back to 1/2 time. I made myself go for three months without 1/2 the income to make sure we could do it. It was the same when we turned the money over to college funds. Well we have done it for two years. B can just borrow money to finish. I don't want her to have a huge amount of debt for an undergraduate degree, but we have kept that pretty low for her so far. They say at our age it is better to let the kids go in debt and help them later than to access our earnings now. I have read this and read this but have so far not taken the advice as we just worked harder, but that is over now.
It is funny that when I finally made the decision I can now hardly make myself go to work. I just don't want to be there. I am so done with it all. 25 years of cleaning something and it is finally over. I have proved to myself we don't need the money. It is a weird feeling and I am going to like it!
I made this decision last Wednesday and called my supervisor. I think he was surprised. The next day I was hit with news that will really change my life for the better. I don't even know how to go into it right now as I am still in a state of shock and disbelief also fear. But I will try to post about it tomorrow, if I can bring myself to admit the changes.
I had a good time with my girl friend lots of laughs. She drove with me to Spokane to the Doctors without incident. My joints were better so this medication is working. They did blood work and I had a phone call for the results this morning which I missed, so hopefully they will call back.
I picked up the professional Celtic dancer this morning and she is at the studio. We have about 14 kids enrolled so that will break us even and bring in a little for bills. I plan on paying the rest of Junes bills this afternoon. I will save whatever is left over for July.
I need to start saving for the house payment in July. We will be on vacation July 2nd through the 7th and then I will need to come home and pay the house payment and some studio bills. I need to get busy. I hope I get a lot of work in like hems and vacation clothes the next few days and the first part of next week.
Have a great and productive day!
Out My Window: Beautiful and I believe it will be hot today, which is fine with me!
