We have made it to Tuesday. It doesn’t sound like much but this week has already felt like an eternity to me.
I few neat things are in front of me today. I called the other day about my garage door. It is all set up to be an automatic door, but I’m missing a part. There is also a small gap at the top of the door when it is closed, I would like for that not to be there. It would prevent warm air from escaping and stop critters from getting in. My hope is that they are able to fix me up proper without a huge dent in my wallet. I am probably overly excited about a garage door, but hey I’m an adult now haha.
The second thins is work related. Today I was tasked with heading up a small upgrade to our shipping area. This is the real first time I have been told to take the lead on anything. So I’ll take it! UPS does this thing, where if you do so much business, predetermined by them, within the year that you get money to use based on that amount. This can be used for anything, but they like it to be geared towards the shipping area. Every three years they give us this amount, we can determine what we need, bring it back to UPS and they set up a purchase order through their vendors. This year they are passing this off to me. Our amount is $5,000. We have three shipping stations, each has a PC, printer, label printer, and scale. My thought is to buy our own PC upgrades like we always do, that way we stay the same across the board. From there we can replace 3 printers and 2 of the label printers, because they are older than 5 years. Once I have that priced we have around $2,200 left. My goal is to allow that money to be used by the shipping department for a real upgrade, something that they don’t have that would make them more efficient. Not just a physical upgrade to what they have currently. We will see, it is about a month or so out, but I have the stuff I want now haha. Things move slow around here lol.
I think the end of this week is when I should be getting my profit sharing check from work as well. With any luck we will see our tax return come soon after. Those two things together will pay off our credit card debt and then probably be used for home renovations, or split into savings accounts for repairs later on down the road. This is also contingent on whether or not we move. I’m feeling like it may not be the right thing to do anymore. It is getting more murky as time passes, and her grandfather would like to postpone the process until next spring. All of that to me screams not the right choice. I feel like we would be better off sticking to the plan we have and finding better ways to manage our issues. Not that they are huge but still. Down the line we will have more equity and if we want to see we can when the kid/s are out of the house. I don’t like our one neighbor but we can deal with it I guess haha. Sure stairs suck, but that may be the only exercise I get all day lol.
I hope you are all having a great Tuesday! I’ll be back again tomorrow, my payday, for another post. I hope to see you then. 😀 😀
