So I messed up in a good way. I incorrectly calculated my earnings while I'm on maternity leave. My comp plan is fairly complex. I have a base and/or commission. I had assumed that I would only get my commissions that were over and above what my regular pay would be. I was wrong. I get all of my commissions plus short term disability pay. My paycheck today was $1500 more than I had expected. I transferred $1200 into our savings.
The other $300 is going to pay for a new windshield for my car. I went to get it repaired yesterday and just as I turned my car off at the glass repair shop, the rock chip turned into a crack. Sigh...
I called and talked to the daycare director today. For January, daycare for both kids is $750 as I'm going back to work on the 13th. I had calculated $850 for this month. It will be $1025 regularly which is more than our mortgage payment. They are so worth it.
Happy New Year to all my blogging friends! I hope 2014 brings you much happiness!
