Sorry to hear about the temporary setback. Just keep doing what you can, I'm sure you're not giving up on the idea, just not as sure about when you can make it happen.

There is not a lot left to cut to Live further below my means. Yes, I could cut out the boys piano class, but I don't want to.

There's a 'Live' in LBYM. You have to strike some kind of balance, and not just barely exist to advance the FIRE date. But you already know that.

Hope your next "Book 'em" event is a success.

There's a lot to be said for turning down 5% if it means you're happier doing what you're doing. Especially if it's something that you're likely to be doing for a while longer.


Don't give up posting occasionally.

Regards
