Just thought I'd give a quick (good) update about my work situation. After doing 3 trial writing projects with a US-based freelance client, they asked if I want to work about 20 hours a week. So, I started doing that earlier this month, getting paid in US$, of course. Since salaries in this country are relatively low and the dollar is strong against the peso, even with 20 hours, the money is a lot better than I was making at that much more stressful full-time job.

Now they asked if I want more work because they are happy with my performance. I agreed to about 30 hours. I don't really think I want to work more than that. There are a few other smaller freelance things that look like they will be coming down the pipe. Plus, if I am making a lot more money than I was before with 30 hours, I don't see the need to work 40. It i nice to have some free time to get other things done.

I tucked away a chunk of my severance payment into a fund I have been accumulating to take a fun trip for my 50th birthday. We're thinking Portugal.
