I originally intended to do an update about once a month, but this summer’s been so crazy I haven’t had much time to blog. Such is life.

I realized something I realized about my pay cycle this summer. I work all month, and then send out invoices at the end of every month. They trickle in through that month, and then I use that money to pay bills in that third month. So if I have a slow month now, bills are tight in 2 months.

I’ve redefined “bills” as well. It used to mean things I had to pay, like the gas bill, electric bill, etc. Now it means everything I spend money on in a month. That’s all the regular bills but now it’s also savings, Health Savings Account, etc. That actually simplifies things a bit. I pay all of that stuff, and the rest is fun money.

The summer went great for work until I went hunting in August. September was then a little slow as well. It was worth every minute though. πŸ™‚

October has been crazy busy. Work is coming in hand over fist, and I’m busy all day. That means December will be quite comfortable. πŸ™‚ It also means the next several months should be busy, which is nice.

So far things have gone as planned, and it’s still great.

  1. A comfortable December is a nice thing…what with higher heating bills and Christmas expenses. πŸ™‚ I’m looking forward to two paychecks in our house beginning next friday! πŸ™‚ Glad to hear the freelance life is going well for you!
