|Working at home with a more flexible schedule means I'm a little more free to go out and spend some recreational time with friends, although I'm still being careful with how much I spend. I've increased my "fun times" budget to $100 every 2 weeks (instead of once a month) and that gives me a bit more leeway.
I'm still being paid as an "independent contractor" with my new gig, but that will change in the next month or so as we switch to a payroll system. That means normal tax collections and the ability to look for a house again.
I'm anticipating a deluge of checks for March, but I'm also anticipating buying a new laptop machine as well, so that will nuke any huge advance in net worth. It's ho-hum for a little while longer here...|
