It's unusual to celebrate extending the life of a loan on a financial blog (and, adding one percentage point of interest), but bear with me a bit. Reducing the monthly payment by $1,000/month frees up our cash flow for a house payment in California, while still (hopefully) allowing us to keep our vacation home. Both are goals, so I'm happy we took the plunge.
The refi itself was relatively pain free (we used a broker we've gone through before) & he was very organized & efficient. But, there's just a bunch of paper work & details & phone calls. Given my travel & life schedule, it wasn't exactly a fun way to spend time, but it's now over. *sigh of relief*
In other fun news, I was in Monterey for a work event over the past few days, and saw one of the most breathtaking sunsets of my life.
The boys are with my parents this week, so I'm squeezing in as much work, fitness & adult time (M & I have a date tonight!) & then will pick up the boys to spend time on the Oregon coast. Looking very forward to some vacation time.
Any memorable sunsets for the rest of you? If so, when & where!
