I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I was a little off on my time line. Turns out – middle of May is when the slow down starts for the self-employed one. That means, in May, we still have large invoices going out, and healthy checks coming in.
The slowdown in income comes about a month or so after the slowdown in work. We’ve been little worker ants storing up for the slow months, so we aren’t worried about that for our typical monthly budget. Really this just affected when and how much extra we can pay on debt.
I won’t have the final numbers until the end of the month, but it will be better than expected. Mt. Doom is not quite looming over us yet. Apparently, that will start next month.
