Where did the last 6 1/2 months go....

August 31st, 2010 at 12:02 pm

I know, I've was sitting around mostly while on unemployment trying to find a job. I have finally found a great job that rewards me for the amount of work I do, I got hired on at DirecTV as an installer. The more I do the more I make, also the benefits are outstanding and should kick in here in a week or two. Spent 5 weeks in training but have been out on my own the last few weeks. Moneywise we are doing well. No outstanding debts but the wifes' student loan with about $5500 to pay on it. Credit cards are all paid off but a $6 charge on one for shipping an item, yeah I could have just used my debit card but I didn't. Rent went up slightly this year to $780 a month for our 1100 sq ft apartment, 2 garages, and cats but still not a bad price considering the only utilities I have to pay are electric and internet. Plus I don't have to do any lawn care or snow removal.

I am making better money then I have ever in the past 10 years I was working as a brick layer so hopefully I can get a nice chunck of money put away for the slower winter months when its jsut takes longer to put a job in.

Now to update my sidebar and attempt to keep up to date posting here again when I have the time.

    Thanks, yes it is great to be back to work. I actually go bonkers when I'm off for the day after having so much time on unemployment.
