I have known for a fact that earning online is something that isn't permanent, and I always tell that to myself. This weekend while at the mall with my kids, I bought my laptop with me to show my mom in law the playground where we take our kids at. Unfortunately, the email that I first read was the one where an assignment of mine which paid $10/hr had ended suddenly, without warning. Ugh.
I'd like to think that in a way, this is a reality check for me that I shouldn't be too complacent about how much I earn and I should strive to have every amount I can save be put in the bank. However, I can't help but feel sad about the bad timing this news came about - with my eldest kid's 7th birthday a few weeks away plus Christmas just around the corner. Oh well, this is freelancing. :)
