Another Day

July 30th, 2015 at 05:01 am

Well, it seems to be a pretty, low-humid day, so I'll be taking a walk. Soon, before the temperature rises. Yesterday I did not walk. It was just way too hot and sticky. This morning, the air is off and the windows are open. We'll see how long that lasts.

While filling out my papers yesterday, I realized that the questionnaire seemed to be a document for my boss to fill out -- lots of questions I can't answer. I emailed her and I'm waiting for her reply.

I went to the library yesterday (by car) and checked out three new DVD's: About Time, Enough Said, and Broken English. I tried to put in a hold for the next season of Outlander, but it is too early to do it -- it hasn't been published yet.

I'm taking the last chicken breast out of the freezer today. I'm looking forward to grocery shopping. It won't be a big stock-up though. It will be a ten-item shop. I have plenty of food on hand, just need the right items to make it all work!

    CB would you be able to share your income/budget/variable fund. I know I am interested. I do not know if you live off of social security or pension or your savings but interested in learning how you make retirement work so I can learn. Smile

    I promise I will post about this when I have the hard numbers. Right now, I am not yet on Social Security, and I don't know exactly what my early retirement stipend will be. So right now, I am living on savings, but that will change next month. Basically, I have estimated that I will have $840 to spend on variables, which includes food, clothing, gas, gifts, travel, vet, furnishings, etc. My fixed expenses are $883 and they include assessment fees,

    Sorry, I tried editing the previous, but it didn't work. Fixed expenses include assessment fees, taxes, insurance, utilities. Mortgage will come from former E-fund which is held at same credit union where mortgage is held. Part-time work will allow me to add to this fund regularly.

    I too am interested in how you assessed your financial readiness to retire. I've semi retired, not seeking new contracts, merely completing commitments and responding to questions from previous colleagues. I hardly spend except groceries and July only one gas fill. Debating releasing this second car. It's old, cheap to run, fun to drive, 101,000 mi and only seems to need maintenance based on manual.

    Is 'assessment' condo fee or municipal tax, or ?

  5. CB in the City Says:

    Assessment is condo fee.

  6. Kiki Says:

    Will you be trying to live of social security and pension while saving the income from the contracting job for the foreseeable future?

  7. CB in the City Says:

    Yes, I will live on SS and pension and will divide the extra earnings between mortgage and savings.
