It ended up being a full and busy work day yesterday. I panicked for a few seconds before kicking up another gear.

On another selling note, I send D off to get pricing (for a couple of rings and a bunch of silver jewellery I don't wear) from a shop that buys and sells antiques and jewellery. The response was good so he left with a cheque.

It is Thanksgiving long weekend for us in Canada. We have in the past added a couple to days to it and spent it in Vermont to take in foliage and the life there.

I have zero interest in extending my hours. They have no clue to how close I am to ditching a day from my work week right now or selling everything and retiring to my ski condo.


  1. I hear you. Don't give in to the pressure. It's irrelevant whether you have children or not; your time off is as valuable to you as it is to any other employee. I think we should all be striving to work less, not more.

  2. I love how employers assume you have nothing better to do with your time! Of course they may figure you are like so many others, drowning in debt and needing every extra penny. This story shows how empowering it is to be financially secure, when you don't like the terms you can tell them simply to take a hike!

  3. Thank you both for your supportive comments. I really appreciate it.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what my other associate has to say about the email when I see her later this week. The email was sent to both of us.
