Stuck in a Rut

I haven’t posted an update on this blog for quite some time now. In fact, over the last month, I’ve basically shunned technology/internet/computers altogether.

Things are ok. As I alluded to in an earlier post this year, I expected 2013 to be a difficult year. I guess I was just a bit more burned out than I had realized. I started feeling a bit unwell in late February — I think the combined stress of the job and trying to close the rental property were starting to overwhelm me. So, I took some time off. From work, from blogging, from everything. No, I don’t think it’s anything serious, but this last episode is a good reminder on how important it is for us to take care of our health!

I’m doing my best to get better now, and I hope to continue blogging. I really do miss following all the other early FI seekers out there… I look forward to catching up with everyone and their progress. I’m sure I’ll be amazed with all the excellent progress you all are making! 😉

With that said, I’m still on the journey to early financial independence. Yes, I’m just as frugal (or more so) than ever before. I have definitely not lost the passion to retire early. In my “off-time”, I’ve even managed to come up with a new gameplan to help me reach the end game sooner. I look forward to sharing the new details soon!

Good to hear that you are feeling well. I’d noticed a drop off in posts. I figured you were just taking some time out for yourself which there is absolutely nothing wrong with. Sounds like you’ve had a full plate for a while now.

Health is much more important than blog updates and overextending yourself! Looking forward to seeing what you have up your sleeve to get to financial independence sooner!

Glad to hear from! I was worried a little bit there. Taking some personal time is necessary every now and then. I just took leave and came back feeling 100X better! Anyways I’ll stay tuned to see how the real estate pans out and watch you rebuild your portfolio.

Welcome back man. You bet you haven’t posted for a while. I thought you already got rich and now swimming in Bahamas and no more care about your fellow bloggers.

I am excited to see how your new property #2 is doing. When available post some pictures, you know, how many beds, baths, kitchens, family rooms, media rooms, hearth rooms, libraries, great rooms, game rooms, hallways, wine rooms, elevators, and powder rooms with a fire place in it your property has!!! I want to envy you something.

Hey, I know the feeling. It is tax season for me and cannot bring myself to write anything at my blog. I come home exhausted every night so after April 15 I will jump back in. Good luck to you!

Glad to hear the all the business with closing your property has boiled over. It can be a pretty stressful time trying to close a new place!. Looking forward to the updates on how it goes.
