    Well I had some great news. The DH company increased the buyout offer.They want 75 people to retire and only have around 20. He signed the papers yesterday.I am hoping they even increase it more, as they are still short a lot of people. My DH is going to cover my sons college fees for the coming year. That means I can finish the fix up for the last 2 rentals and concentrate on debt pay down.I am also listing around 6 properties. If any of them sell. I will also use that to pay down debt. I am going ...

  2. early retirement for the DH

    by , 05-26-2010 at 01:26 AM
    Well, It is finally about time. The DH received an offer for early retirement. We have an appointment with a counselor to evaluate the offer. I am pretty sure he will take it so he may be retiring on July 15th. I am really excited for him. It also helps that he will get a bit of pay to leave. I just wish I could retire. I am listing a 5 acre property for 248K. If it sells I could probably quit. I also am looking at leasing to a solar company. My friend did not want to tie up the 40 acres I am purchasing ...

    I started doing facebook to keep in touch of family for my 20 wishes challenge. I ended up playing Mafia Wars with one of my cousins( a lot of fun) and Farmville. Not a good thing for getting things done- but a great stress reliever from the job. Which has been extremely stressful and I have been putting a lot of extra hours(no extra pay as I am salaried. Another week or two of extra hours and I should have things caught up. I will probably go in early to work on payroll. Right now I am up doing ...

    Well I can't believe it has been a month since I updated the blog. I have had Murphy working over time. I was sick with some stomach bug/cold kind of issue. I have gotten more organized. But am still working on the paperwork. The youngest DD turned 18 and decided against moving to TX as we can not get a car at this time. She got her permit and will take her license in 2 weeks or less. She could not get classes due to the budget cuts. So I asked her to go to try out for the soccer team at the Community ...
