I’m sure that several of you may have wondered when I would start posting articles again. The answer is this week. As you know from my last post I needed to take time off and during this time I have learned several lessons.
One of the very first things I learned is you can never have a big enough emergency fund. When this event happened my parents was able to pay in full for the funeral. They wasn’t limited by money. This helped enormously. I cannot imagine having to sacrifice during a time like that.
I also learned that you need to keep your family close. When this happened we had our yard full of people and it was one of the larger funerals in the town. It made it a lot easier to have people with whom you can rely on.
Third, I learned that an understanding boss is a blessing. If I had been working somewhere else, there is no guarantee that I could have missed so much work as I did. To top it off one of my contracting clients even paid me a partial bit since they understood I still had expenses.
Which brings me to another thing, you shouldn’t over do eating out. By the end of it I felt physically sick from all the fast food and junk I have been eating. I normally packed my lunch and eating out as much as I did or having people bring fast food to us only made me physically worst.
On Friday I plan to publish a rough time line of topics for the next coming week. With summer session right around the corner along with the 2nd quarter being half over with these next few weeks will only fly.
