Well January has flown by! The last week has been a heat wave here with daily temperatures hitting 39-40 degrees. I’m so glad that we do have air conditioning! We have it set on 25 degrees and it only gets turned on when it’s really hot.
Here’s the numbers:
Credit Card: $18,444
- $2800 paid off the credit card this month!! YAY!!
- online consulting site is up
- moved offices and
- I have been off sick again, I have more tests ordered
- car problems and expenses
I completed some of the things on my January To Do List including moving offices, setting up my website for online consulting, cancelled old credit cards, read more than two books and listed items on eBay.
I didn’t bid of the contracts I planned to as I am concerned that I may need more time off if these health problems persist. Part of the difficulty is that stress makes my symptoms increase so I’m supposed to be ‘slowing down’. But as the main family breadwinner I need to work hard to sort out our finances. So it’s a balancing act at the moment.
DH is still applying for full time jobs and still getting knocked back, but his part time income really does make a difference. DD heard back from the interview. The job she applied for was full time. When she arrived the said that the jobs were now casual, with a guaranteed 20 hours a week only. She was offered a position but turned it down as she simply can’t afford to move interstate without a full time job. She is now applying for jobs locally.
February will be a busy month. Work is getting busy and when I’m not at work I’m just resting a lot. I’m just hoping I don’t have to take any more time off. I am going to visit Dad, also going to Sydney to see Top Gear Live with DH which I’m looking forward to. DS returns to university and DD hopefully gets a job. It’s going to be an interesting month!
