Johnny just arrived home from yet another business trip, which is partially why I mentioned Monday that I wanted to stay busy… it helps the time speed by while he’s away. Thanks for the great comments on Wednesday’s post about buying a rental before we buy our own place. You’ve given us a lot to think about, and it’s something we’re very cautiously exploring. We’ve been official Utah residents for over a year now, and I think we’re getting the itch to just do something since this is usually around the time we pack up and move somewhere new. It’s hard when you’re not sure what the future holds and you’re not really working toward anything specific — aside from working hard at a full-time job (Johnny) and keeping your toddler alive (me), which are both pretty all-consuming in and of themselves.
Right now, I’d describe us as coasting financially. Is that a bad thing? I’m not sure. Neither of us likes coasting in any sense — unless it’s referring to watching an entire season of our favorite TV show. So we’ll keep you posted on whether we make any big financial changes or decisions in the near future.
Since it’s Friday and since the weekend is a mere few hours away, I thought I’d forego the nitty-gritty financial talk today and instead share a few pictures of Sally. This girl has found her calling in life and it is chalk art. I use that term very loosely. But she could spend the whole day drawing with it on the ground, on her shirt, and occasionally sticking out her tongue for a little taste. The photo at the top? Utter joy. Have a great weekend, friends.
