One thing that I have noticed is that after a vacation, it is hard to guestimate what my paycheque will actually be.
This is due to a few factors. For one, the replacement daily rate seems to sometimes not quite be what my actually daily rate is.
Then there is the complication of me not earning any commission on online sales (since I am not here to process orders).
Add into the mix the fact that at this time of year, fewer taxes are taken off, and you have a wide range of possibilities of what my paycheque on Tuesday will actually be.
The good news is that thanks to a few good days (in sales) and two extra days in this payperiod I should make at least my targeted minimum.
Even if that is the case, I will still be able to pay off my two credit cards . . .
(Don’t yell at me, the second one was due to two automatic charges that hit it at the same time.)
. . . and balance my budget all the same.
The nice thing is that if I make more than my budgeted minimum, I will be able to actually put cash in my bank account . . . to stay!
This will mean that my Rebuilding Phase could . . . possibly . . . hopefully . . . just maybe . . . begin in less than a week.
We shall see what actually happens, as things could still take and abrupt nosedive. No matter what happens, though, I will persevere and continue to move forward.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
