I’m taking the week off from the blog (Translation: I’m on vacation and too lazy to write posts). Instead, I’ll update you on my life with some some nice pictures.
The girl’s playhouse is almost done!
Next year, I’ll do the zipline and Komodo dragon/piranha pit:
The real house is almost done too!
We have been working on this thing for 39 months and it’s sooooo close now. Full update soon.
For Labor Day weekend, we went to a town called Salida up in the mountains.
Nature never ceases to amaze me. I saw this little dude in the middle of the sidewalk. I was super excited to see Mr. Mantis. He was not so excited to see me though; after this picture he did a defensive maneuver (Mantis Fu) and then retreated to a bush:
Cha Cha Cha Changes!
The last four months of 2016 will bring about welcome and needed changes:
- Our home remodel will be done. This has been a drag on our life for over 3 years and we’re sick of it. We plan to have all work wrapped up in October.
- About $300,000 of my portfolio is about to change. I’m converting my solo-401(k) and some of my rollover IRAs into a self-directed solo-401(k). This is an immense topic, so I’ll save the details for another time.
- I’m going to further reduce my work schedule. This will change our lives more than anything. Two kids + home remodel + two jobs + writing == no time. I’m incredibly fortunate and grateful that the managers at my job let me do this. My weekends will be longer than my workweek, freeing me up considerably. More details soon. My life is a fairy tale.
Finally, I saw the graffito below at the Salida skatepark. Never stop dreaming.
