Turning Down a Job

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.
I am always on the lookout for a job opportunity that seems fitting for me, but just haven't come across that "right" job- or it was filled by someone else. Either way, I'm happy with the way things are for us right now, and it works for us.

  1. I think that if you are happy with the way things are and are able to live comfortably and save some money, then you made the right decision. There's no need to stress yourself out and take on a part-time job when it seems you are already doing something you love, writing. And it looks like soon writing will be supplementing your income.

    Good luck on your book-
    Little House
