Blogging or resting

 

Dear FI seeker,

You may wonder why, our blog remains empty for weeks? The main and only reason is that I am so exhausted after 11-12 hours of work + having 1h30 min of commuting every day that my brain just need some rest, a good dinner with my lovely wife, some reading and sleep, which unfortunately these days is not always coming quickly, therefore when the alarm clock ring at 5 AM, I am like a zombie. But I am lucky, a shower a coffee and then I am like new.

As you remember, I change work in October 2015 (Job, functional move and salary increase), with more responsibilities, a team, a good project on hand and salary + bonus increase.  But due to a strategic decision from our Senior Management Team taken 18 months ago and a massive project deadline for the end of this year, we are sinking in hours of works, to identify gaps, issues and trying to solve as soon as possible.

On top, one of the project manager that is working in the same team, had a burnout, guess what, we had to relocate our resources, to ensure that his work would be done.

So, after almost on year, minus 20 days, I am very often thinking if that move was the right one for me.

Ok now from the positive side, nothing special for our apartment, I received the offer from the electrician, which we already review during a meeting. Now waiting the revised offer, hoping that would the last one. So we should be close to 6500 CHF of added-value, but if you remember my negotiation with the Architect (Discount on our future apartment), where I have been able to negotiate 15’000 CHF of reduction, we are fine, even if I had the 6000 CHF of the bathroom added-value we have a total of around 125000 CHF. So the 2500 CHF will allow buying the washing machine quite easily.

Dear friend, I wish you an excellent weekend, hopefully for you has beautiful that in Switzerland.

Cheers, RA50

  1. RA50,
    long time no read 😉
    Your work load sounds not really very healthy. Ironic that a project manager dropped due to burnout and the team gets his work on top. How is the mood in your team?
    I remember when you had announced your job change, I thought wow – that’s what I call a wage! But seeing your crazy working hours it’s well justified (without even considering your expertise).

    Hope you’ll take care of yourself and relax when there is time. Your surrounding has so much to offer! Last year we’re hiking on top of the Grand Chavalard, I’ll never forget the view.

    Cheers

    • Hi DR
      Correct it’s not healthy at all and I am trying to control it better for the last 2-3 weeks.
      Yeah Switzerland has some great spot to hike and the good point almost everything is close by.
      Take care and best regards
