Congratulations! Off the top of my head it sounds like deep six figures. Wow! Good for you!
--- The deepest and most resilient rabbit hole of FIRE plus a lot more!
Indeed! I think all along I have wanted to work a little longer, this is just making it easier. As soon as I don't enjoy it anymore, I can just be done!

Ha! Thanks, it's just a large patch of weeds at the moment given we are selling the place and will likely be grassed over eventually.

She took her first unassisted steps last week and now this week she's able to go about 4 or 5 feet once in a while, but usually less than that, but it's pretty drunken stepped. She usually starts walking and then dives into our arms. She is so determined to stand/walk it's incredible how fast she is improving.
Yea we are in a great place in life currently. 2019 has been a very stressful, transformative year for the both of us, probably the most ever, with all that entailed bmonkey's birth, moving and job switching. We've also just been decompressing from the first half of the year.
It's not a food shelf program, no, but I suppose indirectly it does, since the leftovers of the leftovers go to food shelf folks. But there is always a lot of extra. If we go toward the end of the distribution they are practically throwing food at you. Thus the 18 pints of ice cream this month....
