1000 Days to Financial Freedom

coins-1157903_1920

Today it is 1000 days until my husband’s 45th birthday.

It’s a good time to get serious about a few goals and dreams that we have.

I’ve been tracking our daily finances for years, and recently I did some more extensive tracking.

Because I needed to figure out why it always feels like there’s never enough.

I concluded that some of it is the culture we live in, some of it is misunderstanding on our part, and some of it is misplaced priorities.

I can’t do much about the culture, except choose whether or not I want to follow what it dictates.

I can do alot about the misunderstanding – I love to do the research and learn new things. Especially things that will be beneficial to those I love the most in this world.

And together with Josh, we can put the priorities in place according to what is truly important to us.

I’m giving us 1000 days to learn, grow, rearrange, renew, work hard, and play hard (for as close to free as we can get it:) ).

Why 1000 days?

Simply because I work better with deadlines, and 1000 days is enough time to figure things out, and 50 seemed a bit too long to be on this road.

45 is good. I’ll be 45 by then too. I’m 4 months older than my Joshua:).

We will have been together for about 20 years (if you count our dating months). And we’ll have another 20 years until official “retirement” age. Smack-dab in the middle of our working lives together. Seems a good time to regroup.

Why Financial Freedom?

Financial freedom means we have choices.

We can choose to take a full-time salary, part-time salary, or side hustles for 20 years – until we’re 65.

We can choose to take time to travel or volunteer or spend time with family.

 

What are our goals?

$2000 paid off for recent car repairs, newer laptop for me, and some writing expenses.

$15,000 paid off for recent home repairs/renovations on 3 houses – our house plus our two rental properties.

About $10,000 saved up in a TFSA account.

About $65,000 put aside in RRSPs.

Rental properties are self-sustaining.

Part-time work or side hustle income = enough to cover ongoing expenses.

NOTES:

*We’ve been putting aside RESPs for the boys (along with other members of our family) since they were babies, so they should be OK for post-secondary education, but we’ll help if needed.

*We’ll need another car at some point soon – I haven’t figured that in the plan yet:)

 

What now?

Once in a while, I’ll fill you in on the numbers a little more as time goes on – maybe even a chart to track it all:)

Occasionally I’ll write about how we accomplish our goals over the next 1000 days.

Accountability is always good, so thank you for reading!

 

I wonder what the next 1000 days will bring…

What a Broken Picture Frame Taught Me About Family Life

DSCI0497

There’s a series of collage pictures that hang in the carpeted staircase leading up to the second floor of our house.

Each frame holds pictures for one year of our family’s life.

About 6 hang of them hang in our home so far.

For a while there were only 5 – one of the frames had gotten knocked off the wall and smashed when our oldest son was moving something upstairs.

I wasn’t sure what to do ¬†– replace the frame? That would mean searching for something that would hold the exact amount of photos I had in the frame, and in exactly the same order.

Do I try to make some sort of a new frame that would hold the miraculously-unbroken glass front?

Do I find a completely different collage frame that might prevent me from including the already-carefully-chosen pictures from that year of our lives?

Nope. Nope. Nope.

None of those options worked for me.

Then it hit me…

This is life.

Especially family life.

And especially with two wonderfully rambunctious and full of life young men in my home.

Things will get broken – it’s a wonder more hasn’t been broken through the years.

These young men of mine have actually done quite well in containing their rambunctious-ness and vitality to certain areas of the house or the outdoors.

Do I want a perfect, pristine home?

Nope.

Just tidy once in a while.

And well-organized and free of a lot of clutter.

But mostly that’s my job to keep it that way.

Their job is to simply live here, truly live here, in the moments, whatever they bring.

To laugh, love, learn, grow, respect, relax, and LIVE.

So I hung the collage back on its spot on the staircase wall – with sticky tack on the back.

The matting was still fine.

It was still good.

It’s all good.

If I choose to see it that way.

Final Lunchbox LOL Launch Post – A Recap & A Complete Package :)

Complete Lunchbox LOL Series

PLEASE NOTE: I will NOT be at the All Nations Church lobby tonight from 5:00pm – 7:00pm.

I had to go ahead and change those plans, plus a summer cold has me feeling a little under the weatherūüė¶

I might take in a movie at the new all-recliner cinema downtown with my son and find a way to escape the heat! Whew!

If you were planning on picking up a book at the church, just contact me and I’ll let you know how you can get your hands on the books.

We’ve shared some laughter together today, haven’t we? Did you share the laughter with folks around you too?

We’ve enjoyed some Jokes, Silly Questions, Word Plays, Calculator Word Games, Fun Facts & Trivia, Riddles, and Holiday Jokes!

Speaking of holidays, pretend I’m whispering this next part…

The summer holidays will have to come to an end for the kids in the coming weeks. It always helped me to know I had a plan for connecting with them and sharing a few laughs or some fun in the lunchbox through the school year.   

OK – no more whispering:)

9am on Lunchbox LOL Launch Day – Silly Questions?

Silly Questions Cover

It’s 9am – and I think we’re due for some Silly Questions? samples…

Did you manage to read my earlier post that gives all the details of this Lunchbox LOL book series launch?

There’s info about purchasing books in paperback or digital download – through direct¬†Paypal,¬†Etsy,¬†eBay, or¬†Amazon¬†– so many options!

YOU CAN ALSO drop by the lobby of All Nations Church @414 St. Raphael St from 5:00pm – 7:00pm tonight and pick up a book in person! I would LOVE to see you there!

For now… How about enjoying one or two of these Silly Questions yourself or share them with the folks around you. Love and laughter are best when passed along, don’t you think?:)

Have you ever seen a horse… fly?

 

Why do bees have sticky hair?
