Bossy has felt very guilty about not updating her Poverty Party, but the simple truth is, she’s been working long days: painting again for clients.
In the seven months since Bossy first wrote about this expenditure and as a result committed to financial awareness, she has seen her credit card balances drop and her newly established retirement fund draw.
Bossy and her husband accomplished this by finding money, even if that notion is sort of a joke when there’s nothing to find. But watching every penny and being held accountable for everything purchased definitely revealed a few financial problem areas, where problem areas equal wine but hell frozen over if Bossy is going to give that up.
Really, in the end, there is no better way to find money than to earn extra money, and for Bossy that means having to don these and get back out there with the rest of the teamsters.
Bossy is mostly an interior painter, and her current job entails a whole house including some of the cabinetry as pictured above.
Bossy spends a lot of time slithering around the floor and balancing on the third rung, but it’s also an enjoyable way to kill time with her brother. And it sure beats some other jobs Bossy can think of, because painting is really just short for Is it lunch time yet because Bossy could sure use some coffee and a bowl of chili.
