Hot on the heels of my whinging on about my budget, I'm still in the hunt for a second job. As I knew, the Real Estate job is not exactly bringing in tons of clients. I've got a whopping two clients and that is two more than I had last month. I do think it will net me a decent commission at some point this year.
My prospective job in the animal field a 2.5 weekends a month (which would be ideal in terms of time and money) is still just that, prospective, and may or may not start until late March. Frustrating....
If I had the second job I could with a slightly clearer conscious, go new-to-me-car-shopping. The verdict at the last oil change was the next tune up or repair would be yet again close to $1,000 and I'm not willing to drop $1,000 on the next car repair (not when I have over 230,000 miles on this car and it is now starting to show it's age) when I would rather put it toward a new to me car purchase. If I had the second job, I could swing a car payment and the increase in the insurance and have to bite the bullet with a slightly high interest rate car loan.
I was given a couple other suggestions for some prospective work and I am going to go back and pursue those as well. Onward and upward!
