House sitting again. Ben and I will be house sitting for some family friends out in Underhill starting next Wednesday, and going until June 2. Obviously, being away from our own home and kitties so much is not ideal, but we’re really trying hard to work our “side hustles” now that Ben’s job situation has become so tenuous (we still don’t know exactly how many class sections he’ll be teaching and what his salary will be). We really want to start seriously considering buying a house or land to build on, which means we need to build up a down payment. Which means house sitting, babysitting, and both of us possibly getting part time jobs. Speaking of which…
I may be working a few hours a week at Athleta this summer. My friend Chris is the store manager, and they’re looking for extra part-time help. I put in an official application and had an interview this week, and I’m still waiting to get the official word. I think I’d really like working at Athleta, I think the extra income would be great, and I think building a relationship with them could be really good once I start having kids and maybe only work part-time.
I put my money where my mouth is and bought a 10-class pass to my hot yoga studio. At first I was sort of reluctant to pony up the cash, but when I thought about how much I’ve enjoyed going these last few weeks, and realized that laying out the cash in one lump sum would save me $5.50 per class, I bit the bullet. I’ve added buying a pass every other month as a permanent item in my budget, so I think I’ll be able to keep up with it. I’m excited to see how continuing my practice will affect my running and recovery!
THE TRUCK IS FIXED! Hallelujah and praise little baby Jesus, I have my own car again! I can’t tell you what a relief it is to know that if and when I need it, I have a car available to me. I still plan to walk to work most days, but it will be amazing to be able to run errands on lunch or immediately after work, get where I need to go, and not have to coordinate schedules with Ben every single day. FREEDOOOMMM!
Do you have your own car, or do you have to share with a spouse/family member?
