2 1/2 years sounds awful at the moment so I am trying not to think about it. Some of these are more fun than others like dental is not fun but travel is fun. The building is not really a 'need' but it is a big 'want' so if I can hang on to my job for long enough then I can have my building. If not then I have to be happy with my old mobile home and should probably spend more than $4,000 on fixing it up.
I put RV fix up for $2k because there are a lot of things that need to be fixed but after that I can sell it and I am hoping I get $5k for it which would definitely help my project funds.
The other big unknown is whether my house will be rented continually or will sit vacant again. The current tenants signed a 1 year lease but after that, who knows. I can't really quit my job and live off the rental income quite yet.
While I am continuing to work and save for these things I am hoping to be able to use the extra 5 days vacation time next year to make some nice 3 day weekends at least once a month. This year, I only have 5 days left until December but maybe I could use some half days. That way I can leave at noon, go buy supplies for whatever project I am working on and get a head start on the weekend. That makes me feel better. I mean, money is nice and all but if I don't have time to enjoy myself, I am still gong to be miserable.
