Looks like I'll be headed out to Houston, Texas today to assist with the damage from Hurricane Ike. I've known since last Thursday that I would possibly have to go but I finally got confirmation from my boss today.

What does this mean for me?
  • I'll be working 12 hour days for the next three weeks. This is 21 days straight with no off day!
  • I'll be able to make a little extra money for the extra work.
  • I'll be able to save money since I won't be paying out of my pocket to eat (I'm paid a daily per diem from my company to cover meals).
What does this mean for the blog?
  • Posting will probably be limited. I will try to continue to post at least three times a week but depending on how tired I am when I get back to the hotel, that may not happen.
  • If anyone wants to do a guest post on SingleGuyMoney, now is the time to do it. If you have a money related post and would like me to post it on SingleGuyMoney, feel free to contact me @ singleguymoney at I'll be sure to note that is a guest post and give credit to the author.

    Good luck with your trip. I'm sure it will be hard and exhausting work but it will be much appreciated!

    Welcome to Houston! Some areas are cleaning up nicely and lots of people are still off for now. But next week expect traffic back to full force.

    My work is a bit extra this week due to being closed for a couple days but next week will be back to normal for me. I know some at my office (in the petroleum industry) will be working extra to get caught up with everything that shut down.
