A Quick Update

May 20th, 2010 at 01:30 pm

Since turning the finances over to DH about 5 weeks ago, actually I think it was 5 weeks ago today. Has it really been that short of time?

It is the weirdest thing. I just have stopped worrying. I am able to focus on doing other things. I am getting more projects done. I am happier.

But I may have to contribute some of the contentment to working from home again. I went to see my occupational health doctor yesterday and she told me that I looked so much better. I guess the stress of my old job was showing greatly.

Anyway turning the finances over to DH, starting a new job working from home (but actually doing the same work) has all contributed to a more relaxed happy me.

From a financial standpoint, I think DH is more aware of costs and will definitely help contribute to the household bottom line.

The stock market tumble today is nerve wracking. I still feel things are going to get worse. Hey it's probably a good day to call Scottrade and convert my SEP-IRA to a Roth!

    I'm glad your money worries have stopped, well except for the stock market.

    I'm happy for you that your stress is going down. I guess that changing things up can be a good thing, if done correctly! Of course there is always something to fret over - unfortunately the stock market is quite good for that.

    The stress of work leads a lot of people to poor health, and the Occupational Med docs see this all the time. The good news is that if you have the insurance of a new, and less-stressful work environment, then it gives you a healthier lifestyle in general.
