So, tomorrow is not only the day my Christmas Break begins (after work) but also Payday (sorta).
I get my paycheque tomorrow (yet payday is actually on Saturday) and at the same time I will be handing Boss the last Timesheet of the year.
You see this time of year is doubly-awesome because not only do I get my Christmas Break, but also because I get a double-payday! (Sorta.)
What happens is I get paid as I regularly do (on the 22nd) yet because my holiday lasts until after New Years, I get paid shortly after coming back.
This year I start back on Wednesday the 2nd, work three days that week and then on Monday the 7th I get paid again!
Since I am up at my Mountain Home, I don’t spend a whole lot. There are a few things to get, but nothing that great.
I tend to budget these two Payperiods together as one long Payperiod. It’s great!
It is also nice because the Taxman bites me hard again starting with that Payday of the 7th.
I go from around 19% taxes being taken off (tomorrow’s paycheque) to 27.5% taxes being taken off . . . that part sucks.
Yet it is all part of life and all done because the Taxman wants their money sooner rather than later (go figure).
I will focus on the happy times of my Christmas Break and that Double-Whammy Payday!
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
