Right now, he has it pretty good, (admit it Kurt, you do! Not that he reads this, but just in case) I do most all of the house stuff, shopping, cooking, scrubbing toilets and floors, and I take the kids to their sporting events and practices, homework, projects...well, you know cause you do that stuff too.
So, the thing is that, since I'm not working traditional hours now and I also work for myself, I am completely flexible. If the kids get sick, no problem. If they have to travel to Orlando for baseball tournaments, no big deal. Except, right now, we are basically making it on one paycheck. We are doing fine, but we don't have one little bit extra. We have retirement accounts and some savings, but we NEVER take vacations (we do staycations) and we don't buy extra stuff and when stuff happens, like the car needing repairs or the A/C taking a crap, we have to worry a little.
I keep thinking that maybe I can write a super awesome book and make tons of money, but realistically, I am thinking this job might be just the thing. I would be working midnight shift for a while which means I'd be going in from 5:30 pm till 4:30 am or 7 pm till 6 am. Either way, the evening hours would fall to Kurt when I work. I'd be working 4 days on and 4 days off, so that's good.
We would be able to pay our house off sooner and put some money away and maybe breathe a little financially. All good things, right?
I am really thinking I should do it. What do you think? Am I crazy?
