Update on tax/dental bill goal: AS freelance jobs

June 15th, 2016 at 10:36 pm

AS booked two new gigs today: a $500 writing assignment from my job and a $1250 distance teaching gig (advising one student on their writing project) at one of the two colleges she works for.

Since she's only booked the work, not received the money, this only increases the future surplus, doesn't affect the current deficit.

AS freelance writing job net: $325
AS freelance teaching job net: $812.50

Actual deficit: $5,086.09
Projected future surplus: $5,960.87

We have an upcoming date night Friday (the kids are sleeping over at daycare) and Father's Day Sunday, so we'll probably pull from shared spending from both of those, increasing the deficit and reducing the surplus. But AS is also due about $1100 in checks, so hopefully those will come in yet this week.

    CJ, totally off topic...since you'll all be in the UK this summer, can the children apply for dual citizenship? I've no idea of costs or future benefits. It occurs to me that should they wish to maintain heritage, go to university or work abroad this would be worth exploring.

    Great question! We've looked into it and while there is no formal dual citizenship, they are able to obtain UK passports. We inquired about it on one of our previous trips but never got around to doing anything about it. Maybe we'll find time on this trip. I think it would expand their future options if we did that.

    Hope the money comes in this week. Have a nice weekend.

    Wow. The kids can sleep over at day care? Where do I sign up for that? Wink

    Yes! She does it twice a year, June and December, no extra charge! I know, she's a miracle.
