Working for a living…

So this past month Katie and I have decided that we are going to help supplement our income by starting a few side businesses. Why you ask? well because we need money of course. The simple fact is that living in the San Francisco Bay Area is really expensive. Rent here is 2 to 3 times the national average for smaller spots no less. We do alright and have not debt, but we are not really saving any money. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t really like having a bunch of extra stuff or feel like being greedy and wanting every new toy on the market. I would however like to be able to save some money for a rainy day. Not to mention having a car with enough space for all of us and AC would be nice during these hot summers.

So what are these business ideas we have? I’m so glad you asked and I’m gonna tell you right now. Katie has decided to start teaching Baby signing time classes. Her store website can be found here. So if you would like to buy the Baby Signing Time stuff, use this link and we get some cool credit or something. Also she will be offering the classes so if you are interested in signing up for one you can contact her through the website. I on the other hand will continue to do what I have always done and that is help people with computers and technology. This time I will charge people for it. (Friends still get discounts) You can find my website with more info at The basic idea is if you need help with any kind of tech, then I can help.

So that is the updates on the “Hey, we need more money” front. I am still working full time for Ricoh doing the EventJot thing. Katie has gone back to NASA one day a week. Thanks to the grandparents for helping watch both kids one day a week. I know the older of the two is starting to become a handful. They don’t call them the terrible two’s for nothing.
