California Dreaming – Two Weeks Already (May 10, 2019)

Well, it’s been exactly two weeks since I’ve been back in California now… And as I have alluded to in previous posts, it’s just been an altogether difficult time for my family and me at the moment…

Life happens, and you just gotta deal with it…

It’s not easy at all, but I’m doing the very best that I can to hang in there… and to be there for my family, now, when they need me the most.

Gonna be on a vegetarian diet for awhile longer, as well…

Can’t complain, I really miss Cali food!

Like some delicious vegetarian Bún bò Hu?


Again, just trying to spend more time with loved ones and those most important to me right now… which is what early FI is all about, ultimately, anyway…

Granny had this HUGE addiction/infatuation for coffee, spanning, oh I dunno, over 90 years?!?

She would have loved this…

Cheers to gmom, who was ALWAYS the rock and foundation of my family, since as far back as I can remember…

Gotta say, I’m most proud and touched by the actions displayed by my brother and cousins during this most difficult time…

They are doing everything they can do to honor and respect gmom’s memory, and are no doubt providing me a lot of inspiration, moving forward.

There’s still a lot to do.


A lot to accomplish.

A lot to learn.

A lot to dream.


Life is good…


For myself, I too gotta figure out a way to make the person I loved most in this world exceptionally proud…


Fight On!
