Keeping up the momentum

July 21st, 2020 at 10:59 am

Somehow it is already July 21. I have tried keeping myself busy doing somewhat useful things. We remodeled a bathroom ourselves in my rental over the 4th of July break. That was exhausting but so satisfying to see the finished work!

I haven't done much in the way of planning for next school year because I don't know what grades I will be teaching and the whole structure may change by then anyway. Currently it will be a hybrid model of face to face classes 2 days and asynchronous for 2 days. Then repeat with a second group of students. I can't wrap my head around planning for that just yet. Especially since the school district still has to explain how we can make that happen logistically and safely before it can be implemented.

I have almost paid off my last credit card. I have the cash to pay it off but I do not get another full time paycheck until the end of August so I want an extra cushion of cash.

Next month, with the credit card paid off, I will revisit my retirement and taxable account contributions as my budget gets more breathing room.

    Our local school district just announced on Friday they are doing the first quarter as virtual learning. The other school districts around us are doing some in person and some virtual. Not an easy year to plan if you are teacher.

    It will be nice when you have the credit card paid off. Perhaps when you start getting your paychecks again, you can also work on your emergency fund. I think that is why so many people are depending on stimulus money and the extra unemployment benefits because they did not have any money saved back.
