Mini Wrap Up

Even though we are still the month to go before the new year, I am already thinking about it. You see, I gage the end of the "year" relative to my last working day which is 1 1/2 weeks from now. And we fly out west the next day. So, I've been wrapping up my 2010 spreadsheet and going through what happened financially this year.

Each year I end it by declaring to D that we will not have any huge capital expenses next year and each year there is something. So this year as I am a creature of habit, I shall declare the same thing and hope for the best.

No I don't regret buying my laptop and the pipes at the cottage needed help and part of being a condo owner is that you may be called upon to pay extra levies for capital projects. Of course the biggies were D and I both needing to change our jobs. 2010 has shaped itself into one upheaval kind of year.

On the other hand, I made it to Europe 4 times in 2010, saw some absolutely fantastic places and I'm hoping the momentum of it all will carry me into 2011 to further new adventures as I slowly plug along the mortgage payment road. There has to be something to balance out the boring.

    "My Quest for financial freedom alongside living a consciously cool life".

    Copied and pasted from your blog page. New jobs, 4 trips and paying down debt... sounds you're living it. Good for you and D.

    BTW... thanks for the update on your trips; now the hard make a decision.

    Also...skyped with our son the other night who is living/working in Whistler. He's been snowboarding for a couple of weeks now. Have fun in the snow.

  2. Hi I'd rather be sailing;

    Thank you for the reminder! I do find myself forgetting at times that we are doing a decent job living.

    Hope you will share what your travel decision is when you decide.
