Monthly Successes:

We are nearly 85% paid on the house! We can see the light at the end of the tunnel! We are predicting that we will have the house fully paid for early in 2020. Also in November we ramped up our HSA savings so this will be a new and interesting account for us to contribute to.

Monthly Shortcomings:

Once again, we have not been writing as much. This is something we will try to focus on. November was an expensive spending month. Between tires and a few things for the house we were well above our typical monthly spending. We are confident that this trend will not continue into December and the new year!


We have begun working out more consistently. We are prepping for a backpacking trip in Europe in July! The motivation of the trip is helping to get us into shape!
