Gentle Readers, I started the remote gig last Friday and it is so nice to work whenever is convenient to me. I have used the time to vote when there were no lines, to handle things for a client, to attend a conference, and to sleep in according to the schedule my body prefers. That … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 135 – Loving This Remote Life Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, Today the gig I supervised ended and another remote opportunity began. The remote gig wants me to work more than forty hours, but wants to pay me flat. It’ll get me through my big European trip and remove my commute. Not ideal, but better than I anticipated. Sadly, it is a 1099, and … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 134 – Gurl, I’m Tired Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, Gig is officially in limbo and it looks like I’ll go under. Next week. The information and speculation of my supervisor keeps swinging drastically. It would be a shame to lose a gig right before a big trip to Europe, but life is funny sometimes. I would also hate not getting to work … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 133 – Markets Go Down, Too Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, My sister-in-law is really excited for me to visit, and that makes me feel lovely. I still have a gig, and there are some big, exciting potentials for me there after speaking with one of the higher ups this week. One big hurdle complete in estate management!!! Such a relief. A relatively tiny … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 132 – Lots of Hope Edition" ...

Dear Friends, Y’all keep asking me to dish on dating. So let’s do this. Email me your dilemmas and I will answer them to the best of my ability. This does not have to be strictly about dating – all relationships involve navigating tricky terrain at times. An outsider, say a dyke who has no … Continue reading "Life Advice From a Dyke – The Series" ...

Gentle Readers, Lots of behind the scenes things going on at the gig. As of this moment, I’m still employed. I’ll meet with a person who may want to hire my business this weekend, before having dinner with the Retired Lesbians I met last week. The trip to Europe finally hit my credit card, and … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 131 – Tiny Announcement Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, Trip to the Nice Lady was precisely the boost I needed. I am glad I had the miles to make that an inexpensive trip. It appears that my current gig may last through mid-November based on private discussions with my supervisor. Nothing is ever guaranteed in this line of work, but I am … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 130 – Europe Coming Soon Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, My gig is still on, and it appears that those of us chosen to remain should probably have a few weeks of work. I’m very glad I took a sick day on Monday. I was able to accomplish a ton for my business and for the damn estate management. Going to have to … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 129 – Summer Fling Lingers Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, There has been a rather dramatic uptick in the number of people contacting my business this week. Perhaps the timing will work out in my favor. It seems that my gig will end soon, and having some business to do until I find another would be lovely. There is enough for my business … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 128 – More Theatre Edition!" ...

Gentle Readers, I feel unnaturally exhausted this week – even after I spent most of last weekend lounging trying to fend off an illness. However, I finally saw HAMILTON and it was beyond incredible. For a portion of this week, it seemed that Hurricane #1 would impact my city greatly. Now we just need to … Continue reading "Net Worth 127 – Hamilton Edition" ...
