Debt Update 12/23/16 More OT updates and Blizzard on its way

December 23rd, 2016 at 08:56 pm

Back on the sad update week, $288.38 down in the last 2 weeks!

My work has now opened up Saturdays and the 2 holiday days up for OT in January in addition to the already unlimited OT during the week. For the holidays that means we are already getting paid for the day for 8 hrs for holiday pay and then any hrs I work will be paid in addition to the 8 I already automatically get paid for. I will definitely be cashing in on both of these as well as doing about 4 hrs on Saturday mornings when I am normally just bumming around the house anyways....might as well step away from the TV and into my office and get some work done! I'm excited at the progress this may provide us in paying for bills we would normally be taking out of savings. We were already able to cover the $2500 insurance bill for our 2 rental properties without taking any out of savings. We have a $2300 property tax bill due in Feb for one of the rentals and I think we can definitely use the OT pay to cover that as well and leave savings untouched!

I have the entire next week off! I am so excited!! No big plans....putting away Christmas presents and decorations, cleaning out the fridge, working out, resting up for the crazy OT in January. Only one more day till relaxation!

Weather is expected to get really bad the next few days here (so right over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) and is expected to be blizzarding with no travel advised by Christmas evening....which is a bummer because we have to drive 1 hr away for the holidays and will probably have to leave early to get back safely. We shall see how it goes!
