If things keep going this way
A typical day riding my bike. The only time it rained so far today (more rain coming soon) was about two minutes into my ride and until about 10 minutes after I was done. The one good and bad thing about exercising outside is.... the outside. From long experience of having screwed it up I was dressed appropriately and was comfortable. I don't mind the rain if I'm warm enough and will never forget the 20 miles in rainy 40 degree weather when I lost all feeling in my feet. So this was better and pretty funny. Care taken at intersections with cars around. They suck in the rain. I do better even with my skinny tires.
It was a good ride. Which led to a great nap.
And my monthly financial report was in the green. I had my typical P/L decay with a negative $279 cash flow for the month but the stock market pulled me through and our net worth was up about $3000. We still need to cut spending. I stopped HomeChef for now but did order a $40 Dinnerly package (3 meals for 2 people).
Our discretionary spending was up with a big shoe purchase for Dana. But that was two pair of walking shoes and well worth the money. The other big purchase was Costco but I did not break out what it was for (food vs pet, etc). I think it was mostly food. We also had the second half of our window replacement service.
All in all I'm pleased. We are on a downward financial spiral in the big picture but it is sustainable for the time being. If we have to we can start drawing Dana's Social Security in a couple of years.
But for the moment we're OK and solvent and even made a few bucks. Which means I don't have to generate income at this point.
So if things keep going this way..... it will be good. Weird thought.
