An exciting update

June 15th, 2018 at 04:22 pm

Dear husband was able to secure another job and although he is making less it will, however, help him secure a 25 year pension with health benefits. We are so grateful and blessed.

On another note, We finally made the decision to buy a house in sunny Florida. Although, we will not be moving there permanently just yet, it will be a winter getaway and we will spend all long weekends and part of the summer there. For me, this financial move is an investment in my mental health and well-being as many of you know, I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. It is something we've been planning for years and we are finally financially prepared for this expense. We are putting 20% and our other investment properties will pay fully for this home. We will be left with an extremely healthy emergency fund. It is a new construction and I traveled a couple of times to Florida in March to select the model and all other features. We chose a specific community because my brother lives four houses down from our building site and the community has all the amenities we are looking for. I am paying my nephew to mow the lawn (very small yard) and air out the house from time to time. I am excited that our diligence and sacrifice is allowing us to do this.

I have four more days left of work and I'll be off until early September. I am looking forward to some Me time. Have a great weekend!
