So the finance fairy has been sprinkling some luster dust around here lately.

 I always thougretire.jpght that we were going to retire at 68…like everyone else and that sounded seriously depressing when you consider that it’s 42 years away. But a little birdy wispered in Micah’s ear that at the pace we were putting money away we can retire much earlier. So last night the Excel wizard worked his magic and did some projections to see when we could “really” retire. And DUDE! If we have one more baby when we are planning to (not that we might not have more), we can retire when she graduates high school. Now that sounds REALLY COOL!

I can totally get on board with the idea of sending the last little bugger off to school, closing down the house for the winter and going on a six month vacation. That sounds like a perfect trasition into our “Golden Years”. And all of my body parts might still be within six inches of their starting points.

    When “SHE” graduates high school. Let me know when to start praying with you for that girl!

    Thanks Janie, Lord knows I need some more estrogen in this house. And I’m sure it will probably take some serious prayer circles to have a girl if you look at Micah’s family.

    our plan for retirement is not like the tide; instead it has to be like the river, always running toward the goal until it is reached. I’m glad you’re on board, let’s stay here=)
