  9. Home Environment
    I need simple plans with lots of flexibility. I don't like long lists to check off. The long list stalls me out before I start and I hate things not checked off. I like things to be my idea. I do them because I want to not because someone or something tells me it is time. Example today the...

    We haven't had our annual Christmas Dinner with our neighbor yet. We'll be having it on the 30th, shortly after I get off work. I know for sure that I want to make a prime rib. What else? What goes with it? How would you cook it?

    Something has been bouncing around in my head for awhile, and I need to share it with you all. For one, because just like every financial decision I make, I need to run it by FV first. And for two, I'm hoping that sharing this simple idea will either encourage others to join me or at least give...

    My DH is starting his first semester of college next month. He is resigning from his full time job and will be picking up part time work as he is able.
