There are many posts that I’ve wanted to write over the past few weeks. Such as … how ironic is it that you can spend $200 on a hotel room and have it be an absolutely crappy experience? Or how Gretchen Rubin’s “Happiness Project” makes for good airplane reading? Or how I should not be let loose in airports because I have a penchant for finding and buying the most nutritionally WRONG food in the food courts? (Although – I give serious props to Garrett Popcorn located at the Chicago O’Hare airport. I don’t know what is more decadent than eating caramel corn that’s freshly made and still sticky hot. Oh wait – it’s really decadent when you get the “Chicago mix” which has cheese popcorn mixed with it. There’s a reason it’s one of Oprah’s favorite things.)
But outside of my immediate family and a handful of friends – no one knows that I’ve been on an airplane recently. But now, I can tell all of you about the trip I took to Denver at the end of March which culminated in an incredible job offer that will significantly impact my family’s finances for the better.
It’s going to be a salaried, stay-at-home position that will take me back to one of my “loves” – proposal writing. (Yeah – I think it’s kind of nerdy that I did writing proposals, but what do you do? Do what you love.)
I’ll share more details in the future, but suffice it to say … my husband and I have spun a lot of dreams upon the advent of the job offer and not surprisingly, our end goal is paying down our debt (my college loans, our mortgage) and to translate our new financial status into further investments and greater savings.
