I continue to be dragging the bottom here and need to focus and get back on track.. spend some time gettign 'defrazzled'..
Interview. went well but did NOT get it.. they went w someone who took $10 less an hour.
Renewal. I got renewed at work but only for 5 months (11/28) which happens to be right when we have our 'change freeze' and basically there is no work to do from 11/28 thru 1/15/15. I need to know now/soon if it is likekly I will be extended past that because if it does not look likely I will look for work now (good time of year to look).If I wait to look after 11/28.. basically hiring shuts down til 1/15 so I will not be talking to hiring folks until at least 6 weeks of joblessness. Not good.. I have 4 months of savings in case of job loss. includes enough for rentals). NOt an ideal situation to be let go in 11/28. Disappointing
2 flat. Talked to the bank attorney. They do not get the deed or record it for 3 weeks after the sale confirmation. I asked because I have utilities in my name and can not change them over until then. With that in mind, tenants paid 1 more month. I iwll settle w tenants as of 5/31 unless confirmation does not go through or my understanding is wrong.
2 flat tenant (who moved). no news on $807. Contacting him at work today but upset and I have no recourse unless I sue.. upsetting. maybe a loss.
Painters finishing today. hoping it looks good but way overbudget.. $400+
My 401k cancellation (just for this month) did NOT go through..I was trying to make up some of that shortage for this month w that . So full contribution went through and I am $1800 short of where i want to be for the month unless I pull out of savings.. postponing that as long as I can (trying to sell stuff, switch things around, recover what is oweed from 2 flat tenant and start consulting etc etc)
Calling property manager today on 6 homes. Section 8 tenant is still there.. (but looking . applications sstuck in approval process). Upseetting. I want her out and this turned over before June 1..
Also calling motorcycle guy who owes me $6000
Work continues to be insanely stressful and lonely (no one at the office). I was excited about hte new job 'sortof' to meet people and have more of a fun atmosphere and will start looking now for higher paying jobs. Since the first inquiry from a recruiter.. 2 more have surfaced w the same $75 hour rate. I am willing to take $65 if it is not so far I just went in at $75 at this first job to 'throw something at hte wall, see what stuck'.. but still disappointed and motivated now to look.
6 homes and 3 units taxes went DOWN (still getting exact figures but some good news)
Put $138 towards rental emergency fund and $630 more in 401k. and cut cable starting next month by $130.
