I may have quit my job today

September 26th, 2021 at 12:13 am

Things at work have been super out of control due to COVID. Patient volumes have been hitting records almost daily and the stress level has been through the roof. We're all exhausted and burned out. And all of this is in the setting of us being short staffed for both providers and techs.

Along with in-person care, we also offer telehealth and that system has gotten even more out of control. The expectations placed upon us to cover that (at the same time we're working in physical locations) wasn't so bad when they first started and only saw a few patients a day, but they're now up to seeing in the 20s or 30s daily without any dedicated staff. Today was really the last straw for me.

I've already sent an email to my lead saying that what happened today was unacceptable and I'm no longer willing to work under those conditions. If they won't move me to a non-telehealth site I will be resigning. I hope it doesn't come to that but at this point, I'm prepared to walk if nothing is going to change.

I'll keep you posted. I may be a full-time ebay seller sooner than anticipated.

Portfolio milestone - $3.2 million

September 4th, 2021 at 02:07 pm

As of close of business yesterday, our portfolio now stands at just over $3,200,000.

I thought we might hit that by the end of the year and here we are at that mark almost 4 months before that. The market performance has been wild. I know it can't continue but it's sure a great ride while it lasts.

I've gotten our AA up to 56% stock as it had gotten really low due to the inheritance. My target is 60-65% stock so we're close. I may just leave things be for now as in another month or so, I'll be getting the money currently locked up in the estate account and will need to deploy that.
