So today my husband & I have officially begun a new adventure. We just had settlement on a rental property we purchased. We are landlords now! I'm still a little shaky. The settlement itself was pretty nerve-wracking and there were quite a few surprises thrown in the mix. But we got through it.
I won't go into too many details today. Like I said, I'm still a bit shaky and I'm not sure I can form coherent sentences. But, I will say that this is all part of our 5 year plan. Plus, owning rental property as an investment is something my husband has wanted to do for the last 10 years (since before we were married). I am not a risk-taker in the least little bit, so this whole process has been way out of my comfort zone. But, we have been researching, planning, saving for quite a while so the timing seemed right.
Next week I hope to give you some more information...how & why we are doing this and also the mental process I've been going through to prepare for this. Until then, could you include us in your prayers - that God would give us wisdom and peace. We'd truly appreciate that.
40 by 40 update:
My quest to lose 40 pounds by my 40th birthday is off track to say the least. I feel like I take a step forward & 2 steps back. I'm not going to include actual weight amounts today because I'm just so embarrassed. Let's just say that I gained back the 1/2 pound I lost plus one. (I think I've mentioned I'm a very emotional eater - and with all these changes going on, emotions have been running high.)
The good news is I can still accomplish my goal if I put my mind to it. My 40th birthday isn't until November. But, I need to get serious! Thankfully, summer and fresh produce are on their way. Summer is usually a good time for me to focus on eating well.
