Reaching My Goals One Day At A Time

Another busy week has begun. I spent all morning fixing a mistake that I made last Friday. I realized it at 10pm on Friday thus causing me to fret about it all weekend. I ended up leaving a message for customer service to cancel the order at 6am this morning just in case. I don't get to work until 8am so I didn't want my mistake to go any farther through the system. I believe I caught it in time so all that fretting was for nothing.

Towards the end of the day, when things slowed down, I sneaked a peek at my retirement spreadsheet. I have one plan that involves selling everything including my RV and truck. I could have my mortgage paid off in one year but I would be broke and without transportation. Another plan has me selling half of my stuff and would take 2 years. I decided to combine the two plans, sell my RV but not my truck and I came up with 1 year and 4 months. Oooh, dare I hope it could be done so soon? Could I live in the grungy mobile home? The RV is nice but repairs are sooo expensive and it is losing value every year. If I moved in to the mobile home, which has lost all of its value anyway, I could save money to build a permanent structure like my little cabin. I don't have to decide yet. I just need to meet each monthly goal for the next 16 months and then my options are wide open.

I love your blog. I want to do the same thing as you, but I don't think I can give up as much as you. I am older than you, but think you are way ahead of where I was at your age. Good going!

Thanks for the encouragement! It is nice to know someone is amused by my adventures besides me.
