Here is my sad confession:

- The stock market tanked horribly and destroyed our assets (not as bad as could have been but did)
- We paid off most of all our debts completely
- I have a much better job than before

Suddenly, there is less pressure financially, and investing in a future which may or may not have invested monies seems less certain. Thus, we have begun living a bit more freely (like going on a vacation to the mountains that cost $500 or so)
