Sunday Roundup: Workaholics Anonymous

I’ve had a rough couple of weeks at work.  Starting on July 5th, I worked 10 days in a row and put in 97 hours to finish a major project.   I’m not an hourly employee.   I totally got screwed out of my paid holiday with that schedule.   The worst part?  When I told my boss I needed the 11th day off because the major project was done and I was feeling burnt out, he tried to talk me out of it.

Carnivals I’ve Rocked

Family Bed: How to Make It Stop one the Best of Money Carnival.   Crystal rocks, and I’m totally jealous that she transitioned to a self-employed pro-blogger this weekend.

Make Extra Money Part 1: Introduction was included in the Carnival of Wealth.  I’m really happy with this series and I can’t wait to finish it and hear about how everyone is using it to make money for themselves.

Annual Fees: Scam or Service? was included in the Carnival of Financial Planning.

Getting Back on Track was included in the Carnival of Personal Finance.

Thank you! If I missed anyone, please let me know.

    1. Wow! What’s up with the slave driving? Can you find another job? What industry are you in.

      I’d be planting the seed now to escape!

      • I’m a software engineer.

        About once a year, we get a potentially huge deal that needs a custom demo for a lot of proof-of-concept features. When that happens, I live there for a few weeks.

        If it was constant, I would have left long ago. 2-4 weeks per year spent objectively justifying my salary 10 times over isn’t that bad of a bet. 🙂

    2. Thanks for the mention! Your submission to Best of Money made me laugh, which earned it the first spot. 🙂 Keep your sense of humor forever!!!

      As for the jealousy for my awesome full time bloggerness, I’ll take it! 😉

    3. Oooh, sorry about the 10 hr days, I know those can be hard. Hope you are having a great weekend though!

    4. I am in software too, can feel this situation, I was in office for whole day Friday and Saturday only took break for food, as I had a major project release. Now Sunday Is a waste for my wife as I completed three posts for next three days, shes complaining a lot lately. 🙁

    5. Any of that time at home, at least?
