September 2021 review

My wife and I made the decision to invest in a sleep number bed and I struggled with the idea of including that in my assets column of my net worth statement but it is a long term item that cost 3k so its not like I blew it on short term indulgences. I was fortunate that I had 2 months of per diem stacked up this month which is why in such a down month in the markets, I gained worth. I bought deeper into my investments and used the opportunity to transfer my mining spoils while Ravencoin was damn near in its lowest price. Not like it’ll save much on taxes on $10 earned. But it’s a strategy I hope to work on. I also got an $8,000 raise at the beginning of the month which is a 19% raise. I’m going to wait for the end of the year to renegotiate. I was hoping for a 25% raise but we have no clue if our industry will shut down again. I’m asking for more later because the whole company got raises across the board and when I asked it was because I’ve taken on more responsibilities than the other people making similar pay. So I didn’t get a raise equal to the amount of work load I do, which I have thoroughly quantified in many sheets in my work spreadsheet.

After being almost useless with my left hand after me accident, I stopped working out by doctors orders. Well the doc said not to use my hand and I heard it as “you don’t need to work out”. Now I have a lot of catch up to do. My goal is to lose a pound a week til the end of the year. I’m half meal planning (hard to meal plan on the road) and using co-workers to help keep me accountable in catering.
