    News on the job front. I didnt get the full amount I asked for, but I got with in a dollar per hour, so, not too bad. I really didn't expect to get the full amount.

    On the foreman position, we've agreed for me to be acting foreman for 2-3 months, or until we can either agree on terms, or they can hire someone else. During the 2-3 months, I have to be out here constantly with only every other weekend off. Thats the normal schedule for the position.
    If in fact I become foreman, my base pay would go up about 20k a year, but I'd effectively double my income due to the overtime and working 52 weeks/yr opposed to 26 weeks/yr now.

    As Lost said......

    Decisions, decisions.

    Man, that's a hard one. From my understanding it's a decent pay rise pro rata, a sweet little egg. But you're expected to work a tonne more hours.

    If I was in your position the question I would be asking is will the extra money come in handy and offset/compensate for the change in lifestyle? The good thing is you can try and find out.

    Congrats on the raise!

    As far as the possible "promotion", that's a tough call. It's a lot more time away from family.... Personally if I was earning a comfortable income already I'd definitely be leaning toward turning down the promotion. Unless.... I had a solid "exit" plan in place. As in, work my tail off for 3,4,5 years and plan on getting out at that point with all the extra cash squirrelled away for future plans or invested.

    It wouldn't really take away time from family. Wife would come for 1-2 weeks a month. Kids are grown and out on their own. It would take away the casual lunch, dinner, etc with my mom or the kids, but they could come here too for visits.

    As far as the actual hours per year worked,

    Right now, I average about 90hrs/week for 26 weeks a year so 2300 or so/ year. With the formans job, I expect that to average about 65-70 hrs a week for 52 weeks (not counting vaca or pto) so 3300- 3600hrs/yr. That increase in hours is where the doubling of income comes in.

    And the game plan would definitely to be for no more than 5 years, banking at least 45% of income. I'd probably be able to retire at 60 instead 65.

    There's a new higher gas tax in this new omnibus spending bill, courtesy of our comrades in the Democrat party.

    Daisy goes into the vet tomorrow to get fixed and have the tummy stapling done. It's gonna be sad and hard to try and keep her quiet for a few weeks until she heals up.
