It's a Little Bit Better

January 30th, 2015 at 09:07 am

My incentive plan, that is. Not by much, but a little. My total gain will be $23,577, as opposed to the $21,000 loss of income. I will sign the forms and turn it in on Monday (first day they will accept them). I hope I will be accepted, because otherwise I will feel like I'm working the final six months for nothing....

Getting back in the frugal mindset .... I was tempted to get a muffin & coffee at the station but resisted. There is no excuse any more for doing that. I had oatmeal at work, and that's what I had for breakfast.

I did not spend anything yesterday.

My gloves and the bathtub pole have been delivered -- that is the last of my Amazon spending for now.

Tomorrow I will meet some board members at a bank in a neighboring suburb, to get some new names on the account, and debit cards ordered. As the Treasurer I have to oversee all that. The reinstatement project is on hold while I wait for a response from the Secretary of State. We paid $225 in filing fees, and will have to pay another $400 to the IRS once the state reinstates us. This could have all been avoided, but the previous board did not do what they were supposed to do, and we inherited their mess. I will fix this and document the procedures, if it's the last thing I do!

    how exciting! am i reading this correctly that because you are old enough to qualify for Medicare, that the loss of your employee health insurance won't be a big deal and that the $12,000 is mostly extra cash? good luck!!
