Quick update as my FIRE date is approaching...

We have successfully signed leases on both the front and back units of our home. Cash flow after all expenses should be around $500/month, that puts us essentially debt free with still having half the house (3bed/2 bath) to ourselves and some extra cash. A bit of an adjustment having tenants, but well worth the freedom in a few weeks more time.

Turning in my 2 weeks notice after this Labor Day weekend.

My side business has seasonally picked up to $800/month.

Overall everything is looking quite solid to enter into the unknown world of financial independence at the age of 41. Curious how long I'll last before I am ready for another 9-5 day job.

Heading off to Europe with the family next month for at least 12 months.
