2013 Recap

Kinda hard to believe it’s been over a year since my last update.  2013 was a good year.  Sold my first and second fix and flip.  Both were profitable, but the first was not worth the time, stress, and work involved.  The rentals are all going well.  We rented the house we were living at in Atchison and moved to Marysville, because Laura got a job in the area.  The second half of 2013 was pretty lazy for me.  I played a lot of games and haven’t really been working a lot.

Lately, I’ve set just two goals, to read a minimum of 30 minutes daily, and to exercise.  I am using a goal tracker app that is basically like the “Seinfeld calendar” method and it works surprisingly well.  I will add more goals soon.  We have been working on the blue “shed house” and still have a lot of work to do.  I will more than likely end up making money on it, but it will also be one that was way too time-consuming and stressful.  In the future I plan on being much more selective in the houses I choose.  I am interested in a small mobile home park in Manhattan, KS that may or may not even be available still.  I just have a lot on my plate with this current house and then the cat house which also has a lot of work.

I turn 30 this year.  I plan on making it a big year and have several trips planned already to Florida, California, Arizona, and an Alaskan cruise.  I am also considering EDC and burning man so it may be a very big travel year.  Gotta hit 30 with a bang.  I hope to update this more often than yearly…lol

Here’s to 2014.  May it be the best year yet!
