    Vacation Plans

    We went to Disneyland on our first debt free vacation. Kiddos were 3 and 5 and I remember it like it was yesterday! Congratulations!

    Living...

    Wow! I can't wait to join you!
  5. Your net worth is going to start to skyrocket!
  6. That's a good chunk of change! We use the interest from the money market to pay bills randomly or HOA at the end of year.
  7. Welcome to LLNOE!

  8. I just wanted to tell you how instrumental you have been in my spouse and I reaching our financial goals.  I truly hope you are able to make a full recovery and able to continue influencing others going forward.

    Life After Divorce

    Wow honey just so much going on. I agree with Vanguard recommendation or Fidelity if you can use their lowest cost index funds. You have until mid April to get those funded for 2017. Don't let that timeline slip by. I'm glad to see you didn't slip back into BS2. Time for some progress!!!
  10. I'm so glad I checked the blogs. Who would've thought? That's just so awesome.
  11. To help pick the funds and understand retirement a little better read Bogleheads Guide to Investing. Most people are intelligent enough to do this in their own without paying a fee to an ELP. Vanguard and Fidelity both gave low cost index funds that with for most people. Feel free to pm me with questions! You and your spouse crack me up! :-)
  12. We just had baby girl this morning while the site was down. I call that getting things done!!!

    Divorce & Downsize

    Tiny houses are definitely becoming very popular. Sounds like with your equity you might be able to get one of those after a time. I doubt that market will go dowh in the next six months. Use that time to prioritize what you want to keep, purge, store if desired. We watch those shows all the time. I'm glad things are going amicably but it does concern me that you guys still share a banking account.
  14. I'm just so proud of you guys. My dad is in the same place he was. I hope to never walk this path knowing what I know. Both maternal grandmother and my father have type II. Hoping my will is strong enough. I already know what I need to know. Thanks for sharing your entire story. I still say you need to write a book. I'd read anything and everything you write. :-)
  15. Good to see you Gelly. He can just sign up for a roth ira online with vanguard or fidelity. Probably cheaper than whoever you set up an appointment with. Then setup Ayn automatic bank account withdrawal to hit once a month or twice a month to coincide with his paychecks.
