Taken out to Lunch!

February 10th, 2017 at 05:14 pm

I had a meeting yesterday with another architect. I'd referred her for a project, and she took me out to lunch, which was unexpected and really nice!

I am still going to PT once a week, and I have to say it's helping! Most days I don't even feel my back at all. Which is the way it should be! Actually, reminds me I've been sitting here for over an hour. I need to go do 5 min. of stretching.

I'm back. I'm not just doing cobra stretches anymore, but also some stability exercises.

Other things going on:
- I am still helping the 6th grade with their treehouse project. I bought the wood posts myself, but I'll be reimbursed. Need to place the rest of the order early next week. I have another parent who will help me cut everything.

- I am still waiting for my airbag to be replaced. Ugh.

- Outdoor soccer practice started this week. Basketball is continuing. So it's a lot of sports right now!

- F finished her application for 7th grade and submitted it in early January. She just took the math placement test. We should hear in mid-March if she got in or not. Pretty sure she'll get in, though.

- Mortgage is at $14827. But we have a big tax bill coming up. Otherwise I would attack it relentlessly! So....I guess no tax refund to use to pay down mortgage.

- Got a check today for one of the subdivisions I work with. I like to end the week with a check!

    Good going on sticking to the plan and beating down the mortgage. Have you and DH decided how to reallocate that sum when you are mortgage free? It wasn't something I thought about, I sent myself messages like...when I'm mortgage free, I'll yadda yadda... DH was never interested in where the money goes so I never asked. We the money really did need to be allocated, I was dumping it into short term CDs in, rudderless and indecisive.

    I'm pretty sure you've a plan...

    I do have a plan, Snafu, but it's not a great plan. You provided an important reminder to think more about it... Some of the money will go to private school, and some will fill in our Roths. What is left over... it is supposed to do several different things. Some into emergency fund, some into various funds for things we need that we've delayed (sofa? ours is literally 60 years old and either needs to be refurbished or we need new). And additional savings for retirement.
