During The Move, and during the packing before it and unpacking after it, we generated practically NO income in our home business. This is because the bulk of our income comes from doing consulting (paid for by the hour), and not much comes from online sales of our development tools.
Adding insult to the injury of6 weeks of missing income was that the move cost most cash out of pocket than we had thought it would. So, we're back to the frugal side of life. Or at least we're trying to live that part of life. Life has not been cooperating, tho, with car repairs, odd utility bills (first electric bill took our breath away, then we realized it was 'estimated' and did not reflect our actual electric use), etc.
Yule/Hanukkah/Christmas was extremely lean.
Even the Chubby Hubby is reducing driving.
We are giving up one of the two cars (the one that needs the most repairs) and keeping the one that only works in dry weather. We HOPE to get it fixed soon, but the weather has not cooperated - it needs a rainy weekday for a mechanic to find the problem, but it only seems to rain on weekends!
It'll all work out, but I really HAD hoped we were going to have a bit more breathing room. Maybe that's down the road a bit.
Ah, well. We plan, the Gods laugh.
