It’s been a while since I wrote a post. As you know, our girl Sasha was not doing well. All I could think off was how the news of Sasha having cancer changes many things. Not only have I been distraught about the news, but I’ve been trying to focus on our next steps, looking back at good memories and planning to creating as many more as we can, knowing our time with our baby is limited, breaks my heart and slows me down. However, I’m doing my best to change this attitude as I know its detrimental, and staying positive through it all is the best possible thing I could do. Sasha has recovered well from the surgery. I will soon share more with you.
This post is about how quickly plans can change. Just a couple of months ago I was thinking I would have a job by now, so I was making plans about some things that we need to take care of. As you may recall from the lists post, we have a lot of things to do. But out of everything on and off that list, there are four things Carlos and I wanted to do as soon as either or both of us found a job.
The four plans were:
- Increase our emergency fund to cover at least 6 months of living expenses.
- Save 10% of every paycheck for retirement, or more if can.
- Tommy’s surgery – our boy will need TPLO surgery on his rear left leg. Hopefully, real soon, we can do this for him.
- Life insurance. Although we would have insurance through a job, we want to buy other policies to ensure our dogs will be taken care of if something were to happen to the both of us.
Though most of our plans are on hold, for the time being, there are a few small home projects we’ll be tackling. I’ll be sure to update you all on these as we get them done.
