Home Stuff

Our home insurance renewal has arrived and this year it comes to around $1700/yr for all our properties. I don't know if that is considered high or not. We chose a high deductible $1000 - $2000 to keep rates low.

I go through fits and starts but I'm currently into reading and have devoured 3 books. The latest read is "Quiet The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking" by Susan Cain. It's good.

I'm a closet introvert. I make my living being an extrovert and the discrepancy can be exhausting.

D and I researched potential future careers for me should I decide to do something different. We've looked air traffic controllers and technical writer. Both careers would suit an introvert.

In other news, Women's Money Week is starting on Monday. I have been invited to participate and write about one or all of the daily topics from a personal viewpoint. Next Mon - Thurs, I will be devoting my posts to this group effort.

Women's Money Week 2012 Participant


  1. Air traffic controller? Really? Wow. I admire anyone who can do that, like I do anyone who chooses to be a nurse. All arrows point to huge stress and early burnout on the flipside, though, so that's something to take into consideration, as well.

    Looking forward to your money posts! I didn't know about Women's Money Week, so I'll have to search that out and see what it's all about.

  2. I took the exam about a year ago and did pretty well.

    But and it is a big But, I'm not sure I want to switch back to full time work, much less full time shift work.

    It's a neat mental exercise though.
