I was offered a casual job yesterday- cleaning.I had applied for the job months ago, once it was posted in the paper as part time and full time positions. The pay was over $18 an hour and was really only thinking of the money side of it.
I turned down this same casual job, yesterday, when it was offered to me.( $12 an hour for casuals). Was I wrong in doing this?I don't know. Gerry is the only one working. We manage paying the bills and having extras on his income.I do some mystery shopping and soon, my book will be ready, so that will bring in some extra income as well.
I don't think we should take a job for the sake of having a job.I have been happy with my writing. I enjoy being home- having my time as I wish it, "keeping house", and looking after the family and the pets. I like not being hurried to work and being rushed with getting back to work or off to work. This is what I like doing.
Gerry and I are paying our debt down towards an early retirement for him, with the help of a banker's advise.
