I’m now on summer “break” as of Tuesday. I have my part time job still. It pays more per hour than my regular job so I don’t mind working over my break. Since it is considered “essential” work I have had the option to work with health care level guidelines in place. I work around 5-6 hours a week with this job. It is helping me meet my financial goals at an accelerated pace.

I’m also helping my high school senior navigate scholarship applications. It is very confusing, as we look for let them through respected sites but some of these scholarships seem a little shady. We have found quite a few that offer “scholarships” in a random drawing per month. I guess they just want your contact info. But as long as they actually give out a scholarship each month, I’m ok with that. My daughter has a “spammy” email address just for these registrations.

I should post more frequently, but it seems I'm always either on my work laptop or phone. Neither are suitable for writing a blog entry!

June bills are covered and I reached my original summer fund goal. Now I need to write out next goal going forward.

We are still healthy, thank goodness. Actually probably healthier than ever because we are not picking up any illness from kids at schools or on airplanes as is often the case. Of course, I did manage to pick up 4 or 5 extra pounds somewhere...

Today is my last day of work for the school year. Feels a little underwhelming! We should know by the end of June what school will look like opening up in August.

That's it for now, take care, all!
