I've started a part time job. I know, you're thinking ... When do you have the time? I'm very fortunate to be able to work from home. They set me up with a laptop and I'm able to connect to their networks via internet. I'm a mechanical engineer by trade ... I've just been a domestic one for the last ten years. The work that I'm doing is 3D computer modeling. I was surprised how fast I was able to come up to speed with the software. I work in the early morning hours before school on non-running days, during nap/quiet time, and after dinner. My goal is 18-20 hours a week.
What to do with the extra money?
- Increase the running budget =)
- Build up our emergency fund from 3 months of living expenses to 6 months
- New tires for the van
- Start a vehicle fund - Hubby's truck is a '96 and the Sienna is '05 We are at full capacity in the van and would need to go bigger if there are babies in a future.
Here's the graph that she made a year ago:
The Couple to Couple League.
The Couple to Couple League (CCL) is an international, Catholic, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and teaching fertility awareness (natural family planning) to married and engaged couples.Hubby and I were NFP teachers for almost nine years. It works, people!
