  1. Quick update to anyone who reads this ... I've decided to just post bi-weekly on Fridays after payday instead of weekly, since we'll see more movement in our account on those days. For this past Friday though, no snow was thrown, we are quite a bit below our buffer and will most likely be in the same situation next week as well after payday, but will update then to let everyone know how we're doing. I've not been able to make as much as we're dealing with some family issues right now.

  3. I keep track of yearly totals in all of those accounts. It's encouraging to see growth year after year. Even in a down year where things stay pretty flat, usually the next few years do more than make up for it and that mortgage will be gone in no time. Great work!

  5. We all have times like that when we have to push "pause" on some of our gazelle goals, but the most important thing is not to get discouraged and to keep looking ahead to the "far horizon" where things will be better.
