Waiting for the next milestone!

July 16th, 2013 at 08:01 pm

I feel like I am watching a pot, waiting for it to boil. My 401k has beenthisclose for a few months hovering just under 100K. Today, $98500. CMON!!!

I want to celebrate the benchmark already! When it happens we will celebrate with cyber cake and champagne!

But alas...I am waiting...waiting...eagerly waiting.

My new title and raise have taken effect...or is it affect...I never know.

Anyways, its official and I am so proud to have achieved a position I never thought Id achieve. I am now a VP. Smile

We removed the old carpet from the country house and oh my goodness, the odor went with the carpet. THANK GOODNESS. With each small change I am more optimistic about the house.

R has been home for a week. We have had some really tough conversations...REALLY TOUGH. For now, we will work on making it work.

The goal of being debt free except for the mortgage is on track for the end of the year. If nothing else, this year has been a successful one for debt repayment.

Once debt is paid..the goal will become retirement saving and house payoff.

All else is good.

    ConGratUlations on attaining status of VP. I'm confident the raise will push forward your goal of paying off debt. It also opens a larger 401 contribution window. Personally, I want the stock market to continue moving up slowly, firmly, not that up swing and drop down like a roller coaster which builds up fear world wide - The old saying is...when America catches a cold, the rest of us get pneumonia.
