Since then we moved our launch date from August to June (in case you thought I'm even worse at math than I am), and Bill's retirement date from June 1 to April 1. We played with earlier dates, but family and finances dictate our reality so I think those are final.
A year has passed and, of course, in hindsight it flew by. Christmas seems mere weeks ago. It has been 12 months since we had our marriage celebration. Bill's new knees are six months old. The 40th Reunion is behind us. In just a couple weeks Richie will be a Senior.
Are we where we hoped to be after a year? Yes and no.
|More yes than no|
I'm happy with our progress.
Financial challenges happen no matter what your lifestyle. The lessons we learn over the next twelve months that get us to our final goal will be valuable ones to take with us.
The fitness goals are easier. Just get off our asses. Something else valuable to take along!
As this anniversary-of-sorts comes round next year we will only have weeks left. Now THAT really won't be that long.......
|We will be so close!|
