I feel like I just won the lottery....

This morning I opened our online bank accounts to the most glorious site I've seen in awhile.
Direct Deposit.
From MY work.
That's right folks.
For the first time since August 18th I'm a contributing member of this family again!!

For someone who's been steadily earning a paycheck since the mid 90's, going nearly 2 months without earning a dime was rough. Not just on our finances, paying the bills with half our income was hard enough, but on my ego as well. I like working and helping to support our family. I'm proud of the fact that I bought my first home at 22 and was financially stable all on my own. Not dependent on anyone but myself. So while it was really hard to go back to work and leave my little man at home, the working girl in me was anxious to start bringin' home the Benjamin's again. Imagine my surprise when I started back to work on September 20 only to discover it was the start of a new pay period...which means I wouldn't actually get paid until today, Oct 13. Yikes! I have to slave away for 3 1/2 weeks before I even see one single penny? Lame! But today was the day folks...the day I've been waiting day!!

Looks like a little shopping is in order!
Or maybe I'll just pay the mortgage.
Decisions, decisions.....

Kristen said...

good for you! I haven't worked for a little over 2 years it's definitely tough! Learning to not contribute has been tough, I'm very anxious to bring home a pay check again!
