Still here. Still overwhelmed.

TGIT! :-) Closing in on the weekend, at last.

I had a fabulous trip to visit my family last weekend (I took the boys to Portland, and we had a big family celebration for their birthdays).

Work is still exhausting, I'm still working too much, and we're evaluating all of our future options. At this point, my goal is to stay in my job until January 30th of next year. I don't know if I will make it that far. I have to stay in role for one year in order to not have to pay back my sign on bonus, and earn my first round of stock options. I will qualify for a bonus if I stay until January 30th. I keep telling myself, it's less than a year away. If I can hold out that long, it will give me more flexibility in the future, as I look at part-time options.

In terms of goals & spending & such - - I haven't been on top of the budget. At all. We spent a ton on the weekend in Portland. I need to use the weekend ahead to get back together with my long lost friend, the budget ;-) Oh, and my menu.

I hope you are all well, staying on track, and knocking those goals out of the park!!


  1. I actually had to Google what TGIT stands for :)

    1. Ha, *almost* the weekend, but not quite there. . . in my world, anyway! :-)

  2. I'm sorry its so bad at your work. I hope it gets somewhat better soon.

  3. I am very glad you are okay although overworked, was getting a wee bit worried about you!

  4. Maybe it is time to accumulate that signing bonus and have it in an emergency fund? A bit concerned that too much work hip could push your illness.

  5. So sorry to hear that your job is so demanding. Bummer you have to stick it out. Sometimes the money isn't worth it. Evaluate your health first. Hopefully it will get better for you!
