Yes, I am alive and well and very very very busy. That is part of the reason why I lost my mojo to write.
I have been to Las Vegas for a week early May on business. I had a couple of days of for myself. I was able to shop for summer work clothes and I am happy about that.
Life is extremely busy and there is not much to tell other than that.
My spending has been a bit out of control lately so I have started to watch it intensely.
My boss is trying to sell the company. He is telling me I will keep my job since he will not be completely gone. Also also he is going to be relocating to the US for good by the end of the year so that is why whoever buys it will need me to run the business. He is going to try to be still in the picture from afar. I am thinking he may be too optimistic about this so, I better tighten my belt and save as much as I can.
Even if he doesn't sell, he will still relocate to the US leaving me in charge. God knows what is awaiting me in the long run.
So, I sat down and crunched some numbers. I need to work until June 2018 at my current salary level to be able to retire fully. By then, I will have enough savings to lead a comfortable yet modest life.
If I manage to work until the end of 2019, That will be much better.
The best scenario is to retire in 2023 when I am 56. That will be truly worry free unless something really drastic happens.
As you may know I am already retired and this is my second career but with my current retirement income, plus rental income it is a tight ship.
We will see what future brings...
