3 and a half year update

November 13th, 2014 at 10:47 am

Wow, I just noticed on the forums that my last blog post was 3 and a half years ago. A lot has changed in that time.

I was bragging about my first student loan payment in my last post, well in December 2012, as a 30th birthday present to myself, we paid off my student loans.

We moved from Pcola to Hawaii.

We sold our Pcola house and have continued to rent out our Jax house. We were able to (finally) refinance it, but they discovered we now need flood insurance so it didn't result in much of a monthly cost lowering so we still lose about $30 per month + any repairs.

We got and paid off a BMW. We sold my car and bought another one with cash after the move.

I changed jobs once, have been unemployed for about 8 months, and am about to start another job. DH changed his jobs once too (the reason for the move).

We continue to max out our Roth IRA and 401k.

We started contibuting to a taxable retirement account and are regularly contributing to it.

    Wow! Lots of big changes. Are you enjoying the Hawaiian vibe? We see the threat of lava movement on the big island, I hope you're all safe. Mother nature can be so scary. Looking forward to cheering your successes.
