Hard to believe it is October already. Wow, I’ve been back just over four months. I love this time of year. The smell, the colors, the change in the way the sun shines. Small changes in nature that when you stop to recognize remind you that it is really cool to be alive. Yes, cool indeed…
It is looking like I will finally be employed once again. My four-month break has been nice and I can tell you that when it comes time to retire I will have no problem with it. I have mixed feelings on going back to work. I enjoy being off and having my time to do what I want; it’s really nice. On the other hand I’m drawing down on my savings and that is not good. So I’m excited to begin adding to my savings once again.
I’m also looking at real estate once again. When I mentioned this before here many of you thought it would be a bad idea while overseas, an objection that was certainly valid. Now that I’m back I’m thinking of purchasing a duplex or fourplex. This would allow me to reduce my living expenses by living in one side and start a side income by renting the other. The ones I’m looking at would be cash deals and are in need of rehab. It would certainly require me to learn a new set of skill, but a challenge I’m up for. If it goes through I will be sure to include the project in this blog from start to finish and even include some pictures for your viewing enjoyment. 😉
October has the potential to be a really exciting months. I’m looking forward to it!
