Best of luck in the New Year
Thanks. Honestly, wondering where the next mortgage payment was coming from was a worry before as well. That's because the guy I was working with wasn't very proactive about finding work. He waited for it to fall in his lap. There were many times this past year when I found myself not working at the last minute. He also didn't like to work full days. We averaged five to six hours of work a day at most this year. This past week I've been averaging nine hours a day on a new job for a couple remodeling their home. They are very happy with the work I've been doing. I'm supposed to finish up another job over the weekend- one that I had done with my boss, but the home owners called and said they wanted me to come finish it alone. I like staying busy like this. You never know when those rainy days will come.
