General update

July 3rd, 2019 at 05:30 pm

It's been almost a month since my last post so I thought I'd update.

We got back from a week in Dallas the other night. First time in Texas for my wife and I. Our daughter had been there once before for a youth group convention in high school. We had a great time and did some fun and interesting things like visiting the 6th Floor Museum from which Oswald shot JFK, the Dallas World Aquarium, the Reunion Tower observation deck, the National Video Game Museum, and more.

Next up is our Disney World trip in less than 5 weeks.

Need to get my wife's van in for routine service. There was also a recall for the airbag. I have to get that done soon as that's the car we drive to Florida.

I had originally thought we'd pay off our mortgage with the August payment but the past couple of months were particularly expensive due mostly to travel-related expenses so I didn't pay as much extra as I had thought I would. I'm pretty sure now we can make the final payment in September. That will drop our monthly expenses by about $700 going forward which will be very nice. It will mostly go to pad the retirement savings but I'm sure we'll spend some too.

Nothing else major going on that I can think of at the moment.

    I'm glad you had a good time and woo-hoo on having the mortgage payoff in sight! Six more years and six months expected here (if I am successful in cutting 10 years off my 30-year mortgage--so far on track).
