End of the Year Musings

December 27th, 2016 at 02:39 pm

Christmas was great. Spent time with family, and I got practical gifts such as a nail gun and a vacuum I don't think anyone has every been as excited as me to receive a vacuum. I was nearly dancing with glee as I sucked every piece of furniture and every nook and cranny.

Unfortunately I was not able to complete my goals for 2016. But I am confident that I will have the money for the Roth by the April deadline.

I should have my credit cards from Christmas paid in full by next week. And I can't foresee any other expenses popping up. So that's good news!

I am unsure what goals I should set for 2017. Everything is so much up in the air. I am turning the loan application in for our home addition this afternoon, and then there is no going back. Every extra dollar will spent cash flowing remodel expenses in 2017.

We spent our weekend doing some much needed odd jobs on our house to get ready for the upcoming appraisal. This weekend husband will have 3 1/2 days off again, so hopefully we will get everything finished. It's nice seeing our projects come to a close... just in time to start more projects.

    Glad to learn your Christmas was great! I chuckled over your enthusiasm for the vacuum. Sometimes the practical gift is the most appreciated one. Hope you finish your weekend projects.

    Don't be too hard on yourself for not completing your goals, you still did great things.
