We are a little less than 7% away from meeting our Lofty Savings Goal. I'm hoping to be done with it by February of 2018 or sooner. I keep a visual aide to help me keep motivated and excited about meeting goals. I can't wait to color fill the 100% line on my savings thermometer. Smile

We closed on the investment property today and we went out for lunch to celebrate. Just a meal at our favorite pizza place. We are simple people. I am already preparing for Thanksgiving and I have the ham in the freezer as I write. We are going to our son's house for Thanksgiving and Christmas at home.

I received a picture of my sister's grandchildren today and I can't believe how big they are. I could not help to think about my dear sister and how much she adore her kiddos. I'll be sending them Christmas gifts on her behalf "from heaven". It's hard to understand why our love ones depart from us suddenly, but I trust that God's timing is perfect.

The Mortgage Principal Reduction Extravaganza begins next month. We may use a portion of our savings down the line to reduce the principal even more, but not yet. I don't like feeling cash poor. My mom is still with us and going home for her is not an option since the island is making little progress as they recover from the aftermath of Maria. She is not very happy about the cold weather but I told her she has to rough it out until I feel she can go back. If there is progress in the months ahead, I will take her for a visit in March. But it all depends.

Well, this is it for today. I hope you all have a great weekend.

    Congratulations on the new home and reaching your savings goals.
    I pray that things get better in PR, just heard briefly today that there was money paid to a company that screwed thongs up when it came to the electricity

    I am going to ride your coattails and participate in the Mortgage Principal Reduction Extravaganza. I think I am going to apply all of my loose change deposits along my regularly scheduled principal payments towards it. Thanks for the inspiration!
