Last Day of Vacation

So today is it. The last day of my vacation and the last day that I am among the ranks of the unemployed (hopefully for good). I am putting finishing touches on my vacation, am going to try to get some fishing in later today when the sun goes down a little and get some me time. The last time I had me time was in Las Vegas.

This week is also tough because we are still waiting for our last residency loan check to come in but expenses do not wait for that. The cash reserves are starting to really scratch the bottom of the barrel and I may have to suck it up and take a few late fees just to wait. But at least in 2 weeks I get paid and then a steady stream of income will come our way.

The wife and I were talking yesterday about all of the great FREE things that are going around that, if we can, we should take advantage of. For example, free concerts sponsored by the recreation department, going to parks with a picnic, etc. This is certainly the lowest point in our financial life. It is ironic that I am going to be 37 years old and I still cannot hold my head above water financially. It will be great that I can start feeling that my family can hold its own. Yet, I know in my mind that this will be the case once I am done with training either in 3 or 6 years if I get into my fellowship (which I intend to).

So many things that we would like to do. And yet we still have to wait. But if we waiting this long, what is another few years right? We are young and fairly healthy.

OK. till next time.
