Past and Future

This week I attended a two-day retirement (ha!) and financial planning seminar, and all I have to say is: “Can I have a do-over??”

The amount of information imparted was like having buckets of water dumped on me. I’ve spent the weekend making to-do lists and reminders. I need to sign up for a Medical Flexible Savings Account, and, when Open Season comes around, sign up for a dental and vision plan. I need to check my fund allocation on my TSP (the govt’s equivalent of a 401(K)), and I need to get some debt paid down. Yikes!

Last Friday was my parents’ 56th wedding anniversary

I’m a honeymoon baby (Sept. 18th to June 24th) and I’m told my maternal grandmother was really nervous that I would arrive too early. Oh, the morals of the mid-50’s!

Scared Silly is finished, too.

  1. Congratulations to your parents!

    Scared Silly looks fantastic! I have it kitted up, but no start. :(

    You'll make it to retirement.

  2. 56 years is awesome! Great job on Scared Silly.

  3. Congratulations to your parents! They were a lovely couple. I had to laugh about the grandmother's worry. Boy, have times changed! Your Scared Silly looks great.
