Bracing for Winter

So, with cold temperatures on the way in the next day or so, I am getting ready for winter. 

This means I am not only finding my cold weather gear and putting them in the Ready 5 Position, but I am also going through my winter routines.

I am doing the little things that I have to do in order to function in full-blown Winter Mode, just to remind myself of what I have to do BEFORE I actually have to do them.

A dry run or two is a good thing for a few reasons. For one it gets me mentally prepared for the frozen tundra that will be my life for the next few months.

For another, it will help me work out the kinks and force me to find this little thingy or that little whatsit. 

Again, the last thing you want to be doing is looking for a key piece of your cold weather gear when it is actually cold. (That really sucks, I this know from experience).

I have seen this all before and while I could afford to rent a room somewhere to avoid all this, I will not, for one very good reason . . .

I have frozen my tuchus off to pay the banks off and earn my freedom, and I’m worth freezing my tuchus off for one winter at least to give myself a head start on building my finances.

After all, my next goal is to fully fund my Mid-Term Account up to contain two years worth of living expenses. 

At which time it will be nicknamed the “I’m not F*cked Fund.” 

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
