I’ll be honest after getting to FIRE myself I’ve backed away from reading most blogs on the topic.  My interest has shifted from ‘getting to FIRE’ to ‘living in FIRE’ which changes what I read.  But the other day I decided to skim some blogs and Reddit forums on getting there again and I fully … Continue reading The Long Road to FIRE → ...

Most people have a bit of a routine.  We do things in a certain way and often at a certain time.  The routine can vary but generally over the long term can be stable for months or years depending on your life.  And the majority of people like having a routine and are upset when … Continue reading Adjusting Your Time → ...

Welcome to my net worth posts where I try to prove to myself and you that I wasn’t crazy for leaving work in the fall of 2017 to start my early retirement.   A few important notes:  we are mortgage free and our goal is have our income/investment gains exceed our spending by 102% on … Continue reading April 2019 – Net Worth → ...

Well dear Canadians, please tell me you have finished your income tax submission and submitted them (and if you owe paid up)? If not just a reminder that they are due tomorrow on April 30, 2019.

Well yesterday was my first shift at the new library job and wow I was impressed. It started off nicely with a staff meeting so I could ‘meet‘ most of my co-workers all at once rather than introducing myself to everyone for the next month.  The odd thing is this is my local branch so … Continue reading The Library Gig – First Impressions → ...

Well depending on the actions of the Internet Retirement Police, I may have to hand in my early retiree membership card because I just got a job yesterday. *Gasp*   And according to some people you can’t be retired if you have a job which to me always sounded so silly as I could care … Continue reading I Got a Job, So Am I Still Retired? → ...

There is an old saying “Man Plans, God Laughs” which seems particularly true for me this week.  I had plans to do certain things and the entire week seemed to blow up with other things instead.  Not all the other things were bad, like my 185 piece Bone Kickstarter order of minis arriving about three … Continue reading What’s the Point of a Plan? → ...

Early retirement for someone under 50 can be a bit of tricky thing because you have to decide how the answer the question: what do you do for a living (or one of variations of that question)? Because the question comes up in all sorts of casual meetings with people and can cause some issues … Continue reading No Longer Hiding My Retirement → ...

Well that was unexpected.  I opened my mail yesterday to see a rather thick envelop from my pension plan so I opened it and read the letter and stopped walking for a second.  Then I read it again and realized I was getting a second chance to change a mistake that occurred when I left … Continue reading A Second Chance → ...
