-Mini Lofty Savings Goal Part II is 30% funded.

-Our quarterly property taxes are due on Monday to the tune of $1800 Frown.

- Headed to FL on Wednesday; real estate market seems to be a seller's market as it is here in New Jersey. I am going to check things out but in a perfect world, we would like to pay for a house using cash. It seems like we are short of that $60K. Let see what happens; the purpose of this trip is to feel the market and we are not buying anything yet. In the event that a move is not possible; here is the plan...

This month, we are running a bare bones budget (mortgage, property taxes, HO insurance and household bills). We want to see if I can leave my job and live on much less than my current salary. I really need out as it is taking a toll on my health. I am prepared to do what it takes to feel better about where I spend eight hours of my day.
Let's see what happens.

My Seasonal Affective Disorder has been better this year so far. I just had a few days when it was very difficult to function. I am eagerly awaiting for Spring to come. Looking forward to the Florida sunshine.

    While I don't question your desire to moe to Florida, I mention both New Mexico and Texas have more days of sunshine and lower figures for skin cancer. What criteria creates your ideal location as a retiree? Do you enjoy reading all those articles that tout the top ten cities for retirees by the various studies.

    Good idea on bare bones to see if you can leave your job. Hope it works out for you. We tried doing that before I retired to see if we would have problems living on our pensions and we could do it. Hope things work out for you.
