Another Week Already?
Time sure flies when you’re working overtime. I desperately needed it too. After being sick for two weeks, I really missed that sweet, sweet O.T. on my paychecks.
Don’t get me wrong, I still get paid time off where I work, so I’m not quite destitute, but there’s no overtime on the P.T.O. checks, and I really like the extra money.
I heard some financial adviser say this decades ago: “If you earn more than you spend, budgeting isn’t necessary.” Of course, the trick is to earn more than you spend, which under normal circumstances is nigh impossible, but when you get lots of overtime, you spend less because you’re at work, and you make more, because you are at work. Win, win!
And what about work life balance? Well, if the checkbook isn’t balanced, then my life is going to be way out of balance, and working overtime brings it back into balance.
But seriously… if I ever get ahead, I’ll try to set aside some extra “me” time. Meanwhile, I owe, I owe, it’s off to work I go.
