  • More thinking on "post career" plans

That's it for me! What are you hoping to accomplish this month?


  1. I need to figure out the side hustle thing. I just don't feel some cash back hustles work me, but earning enough to cover holidays over the course of the year would be a great fiscal goal since we're moving to one income.

    1. It's fun to set a target & see it grow over time. I like the idea of a holiday goal - then you can spend your budget & not worry about it, and it's motivating while you earn it.

  2. Great goals! What do I wish to accomplish? Work wise, get through this murder trial in middle of month. Family wise, fly (I loathe flying but will do it for family or work only) to see daughter’s family. Also celebrate with my three sons sometime during the month here. Exercise wise, continue walking an hour a day four days a week. Financially, I have made huge expenditures but with the exception of one, they were planned. Want to get back on track for savings.

    1. Your trial sounds so challenging. Sending good thoughts that you get through it quickly. Enjoy your time with the family!!! And, love your exercise goal.

  3. From Precious: Oh my, is Nick that old already that he can drive? Where have the years gone? I love your goals. I am confused though. Did you leave your job?

    1. Oh yes! Sam has his license, and Nick has his permit.

      I've given notice at work (I have a long notice period), but haven't quit yet. Likely March or April. There are different comp payouts, depending on when I leave.

  4. I wish you the best of luck in your next endeavors when you do leave.
