Four Thousand Dollars Later, the Wait is Nearly Over [UPDATED]

Tomorrow is the vote.

In the past 8 weeks we have been hustling; hard. I’ve picked up two new side jobs — one tending bar and one doing freelance visual effects while The Wife has worked diligently turning last year’s October debacle into a pillar of savings.

In the last two months we have added four grand to our emergency fund and paid the bare minimum on our remaining debt.

By this time tomorrow we’ll know if we will need it to live on while I look for my new career or if we get to drop it on the last credit card.

Thanks for hanging with us. You’ll be the first to know.

the Dad

Update: No: 135, Yes: 87. Sigh of relief and tomorrow morning $4,000 goes right on to our last debt!!
