Memorial Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend (US readers) and I am so grateful to all those who have served and given their life for our freedom.

I had a busy and somewhat productive weekend that went by way too fast.  I am not looking forward to getting back to work this week, but I try to remember that each day I am employed is another dollar that I can use to pave the way to financial independence. 

I should be receiving a travel voucher reimbursement this week and I will use that to (finally) repay the money I took out of my emergency fund to fund some work travel for earlier this year.  There's no use complaining, it's going to take two months, at least, for each travel voucher to be repaid.  I hate, however, that I had to take money from my year end bonus to pay for work expenses. 

That being said, work is still crazy and I will do a separate post on that later.  Sometimes venting on here helps me feel better about the insanity at work. 


  1. You vent away! My husband likes his work, dislikes the job, but likes the money. I wish it could be different, but the corporate world seems to suck the life out of you. This is one of the reasons we are moving out to forest!

    Keep plugging on - it will pay off - you are doing amazing!

  2. It's great you socked away an account for travel expenses so it doesn't mess with the rest of your budget. That stinks that you have to cover business expenses up front. Keep on keeping in and eye on the prize.
