Life has been tumultuous lately. Mrs. 1500 and I thought that we’d raise our girls in our current home. We put a lot of work into it and were happy with it:
Even though I’ve written about moving before, we never thought that we’d go through with it. However, something recently changed which has us considering moving in 2019. The change that made us reconsider isn’t a good one, but I’m excited to see where this next chapter in our life takes us. I’ll explain later.
And hey, I finally got to use the word tumultuous in my writing! Cross that one off the bucket list. I know, that word isn’t super impressive, but you’re not reading Hemingway here either.
Eagles may soar, but weasels don’t get hit by planes.
Anyway, we’re in Florida now where it’s hot and steamy. I dislike hot and steamy, but life is good when you’re near the ocean:
In a couple hours, Mrs. 1500 and I head off to Cuba. I hope our adventures in Havana are better than Go Curry Cracker’s.
I won’t have internet access in Havana (I’m just hoping for toilet paper!), so I’m taking this week off from the blog. In the meantime, enjoy some of my less sucky posts:
Swinger Side Hustle: There is no polite way to say this, so I’ll just come right out and say it: My neighbors’ side hustle is swinger parties.
Enough: Have you found your level of enough yet? I struggle with mine sometimes. When I do, I make myself read my own post. So yeaaaah, I’m kinda strange.
Adventures with the law in Iowa: I was innocently passing through Council Bluffs Iowa when the police hassled me. None of it would have happened if I wasn’t a frugal weirdo.
Don’t be like me: The most important advice I can give you on your journey to financial independence is to enjoy the journey. I didn’t as much as I should have. Looking back, this was a ridiculous way to live. Make every day count, even if you have to spend it with a pointy-haired boss that you despise. Life is too short to live any other way.
See You Soon
My path is now a little uncertain. We moved into our current home almost exactly 5 years ago. Now, here I am writing about moving and it’s surreal. It hasn’t quite sunk in yet.
The uncertainty of life is what makes it fun. While I won’t deny that it’s a bit scary too, having decades of my life all planned out and known sounds boring and terrible. The curveballs that life throws at us and how we deal with them are what defines us.
I’m not sure what’s around the next turn, but I’ll try to enjoy the view always.
