I don't know about you, but to me, despite all the hassles I've had, this year has flown by faster than any previously.
I am fortunate in that I have only till December 19th to work and then I'm off until January 5th. It's the first time in many years that I've been able to take two full successive weeks off for vacation.
This year I finally made the decision to work 2 more years unless my company decides it will be moving closer to the city which is a 50/50 possibility right now. I do have my Plan B ready to put into place if need be, but the closer to the 2 full years of working that I can get will most definitely be better for me as I won't have to dip into my retirement account as fully as I would if I have to leave before age 70.
We, my mother and I, aren't planning anything really big for Christmas . . . it is only the 2 of us, but I did put up a tree and lights around the bookshelves in her apartment for us to enjoy this season. She's 94 and I don't know how much longer I will have her around so I want to do everything I can to make sure she has a pleasant holiday.
There are so many things I want to start doing next year and trying to put together some things in an attempt to create some passive income. I will have to contact my web host as I have been unable to publish to my website since they took off the FP extensions. I will try to make arrangements week of Jan 29 to do that.
Well to all of you I wish you the best holiday season ever. Have fun!
