A few years ago I came across the book Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs.
(That is an affiliate link there but you can probably find this book at your local library!)
I loved the book and I was amazed by how much meaning can be conveyed with just six words. I wrote my own memoir, and it reads…drum roll please…
Often got what she wished for.
That pretty much sums up my life. I might have it inscribed on my tombstone. Remember what they say:
be careful what you wish for.
Fellow blogger Eli at Coach Daddy runs a regular six word series, and he invites other bloggers to play along. In October, I was invited to share how I would spend hermit day in 6 words. I think Hermit day was custom-made for me and I was so proud of my contribution. There were lots of clever entries and I would encourage you to visit and add your own.
October was a great month!
I could hardly hear the crickets around here.
Last month I published a post about how financial independence (or the concept of it has anyway) ruined my life. It has!
I strongly believe that personal finance is 10% about the money and 90% mental. Readers here, at Messy Money, have front row seats to my mental
breakdown FI journey.
The day before Halloween I thought this blog was being attacked by crazy cyber bots. I was worried I was experiencing some type of denial of service attack (whatever that means) but the truth was my story, I was ripped of by a Nun made it on Rock star Finance. That was a super-dee-duper day!
So what’s coming up on Messy Money?
I am hosting the Yakezie carnival this weekend. I hoping to create a Choose Your Own Personal Finance Adventure story with the submissions. Please come by and see how it turns out.
Retirement story part 3 – Post retirement housing. My parents retired and bought two houses, one on each side of the Atlantic. Their retirement is interesting and I am both inspired and jealous.
Also…..Will our net worth go up? Will we plug the gaping holes in our budget? Will I hire a proofreader for this blog?….
Please stay tuned.
P.S. My husband is reading the latest issue of some snowmobile magazine and is getting excited about these new remote-controlled heated insoles for his boots. Oh dear.
