I work for the feds. The post office to be more exact. I'm the one that loses your mail. J/K. I've worked crazy hours since 1996 when I entered the workforce. But I've had very bad spending issues, so my goal is to catch up with my finances. They are not that good, but not that bad either. My networth is around $146k, so at least it's on the positive side. I don't do those crazy hours all year. It's around half the time. I can clear around $96k after taxes with all that OT So yeah, plus what my wife is making (around $18k per year). I'm trying to get like $30k in liquid cash, plus keep investing, paying off my modest home and save forward the kids to help them out a bit with their stuff. Sorry for the long response. I'm actually even MORE motivated now that I have a clear head on top of my shoulders. My consumer debt got so out of control, that it ended up in $75k of unsecured debt and chapter 7 bankruptcy. It's embarrassing to admit, but I just tell my story so that we can learn from it and move on. Some of that debt was rc related at around $25k. So yeah, I had lost my mind. Working all those hours to blow like half of it, more on too much stuff that I didn't really need. I'm 47, so I have plenty of time to recover and do the right thing for me, for my family, and to set an good example for others. Hopefully you didn't fall asleep reading this 😴😂😅😢. I'll be fine.
I am at 19 yrs for fed govt.

I've been working for the U.S Navy for 10 years now.👍. Working for the government has its perks.but I hate it when they force me to work on some Sundays..that's a family day for me and a lot of times they take that away from me🙁
I'm trying to get through to Castle about a non-warranty claim. Got an open chat going, called twice, and left my # for a return call. Going on 2 hrs. now.:mad:
Wow that's a long time .I hope they call soon..hang tight 👍

Yo pretty damn cold out there tonight..🥶🥶.I'm hoping I get a some sort of a decent night so I can start putting up Xmas lights.i normally do it this week if thanksgiving but weather is way to cold..I put my lights up at night so I can see where the lights are going better.if I do it during the day it's hard to see what the string of lights look like in a bush 🤷.I'm weird like that.
 
Yeah were I go there's absolutely no one. I stay away from people. There's always a Karen or Ken that might say something or get in the way on purpose. 👍

I work long hours at my job too during the holiday season, but I make time for my family and hobby during the weekends, even though I'm pretty tired. This week I worked 50 hours Mon-Fri (10 hours per day). Usually I work 12 hours per day and sometimes 6 days. Plus I work the swing shift. If I work 10 hours, I get off at 1am, so I drive home, take shower etc. It's 2am by then. They I get up at 6:10am to take my kids to school and cook them breakfast (Mon-Fri). Luckily they are off this week (my kids and wife). If I work 12 hours, is even worse. Once I come back from taking my kids to school, I force myself to go to sleep at least 3 hours since I'm usually not even sleepy. Crazy right? And I'm already 47. Gen X!

I used to work something similar to that when I built river boats and barges.
5 days a week 1 week, 6 the next. Sat was double pay though so i worked every Saturday for sure. So 6 days a week at 12hr day plus 2hr driving.
A Lotta the time I worked Sundays because they were triple pay.. did it for years and when I realized my kids didn't know who I even was I had to leave all that behind. Went back to being a mechanic workin normal 9hr shifts and only 10min drives.
Alot less money without that OT pay but worth it with little ones.

Bro I do the same thing! Lights go up at night so we can see what they look like and adjust as needed 😁😂

I really wanted to drop a 😡 face lol but I don't want you to have any in your profile from me .I'm jelly.your warm I'm 🥶.anyways I gave you a 😍 because I love warm weather..blame my parents for having me in Rhode Island.
Atleast for me im workin in doors again. Got heat in there. 😁

My place is wide open like slut...when I'm inside them subs it's fkin freezing..they leave the huge ass doors open all day and night so the welding fumes go out.only time I'm warm at work is when I'm powder coating.then I'm under a 500 degree oven that's the size of a 3 story fkin house .. 🥵 and my shiz nitz are all sweaty 💦
 
Today can kiss it.
Kids brought home a stomach bug again. Wife, 1yr old, 9yr old and me are all 🤢🤮
I had crap to get done at the shop though so I went and did it anyway.
I ok'd it with the owner first. Told him if he was OK with me there sick I was 100% cool with it. Sick here or there didn't matter all the same.
Less something changes though don't think tomorrow is gonna happen.. ugh.

Folks need to keep thier freakin kids at home when they are sick instead of drug em up and send them to infect the whole school.

I've had cold symptoms for like 3 weeks now. My throat is still weird. Dr said it's just a "regular cold", but anyone at work that gets it, they get taken out a week minimum. I know because I also had to call in for a week and two days! And some people at work are still getting sick 😭. My coworker that works close to me also had to call in for a week. And that guy is in very good shape. He's 50, but he goes to the gym all the time. But it still took him out.
