A Boring Long Weekend, For Savings

I will be spending the long weekend in my Eastern Home, and not in the mountains. This will be a pattern for some time to come; there is a reason for this. 

I will be getting the repairs done to Wanda later this month, or rather, most of them. 

The last bit I will have to look into doing some other way, the subcontractor is unable to do the repairs in a timely manner. 

All this while, all this year, I have been putting what I can into savings, and in so doing, building for my future. 

Sure, my savings took a bite due to me paying off the few niceties that I bought myself. Yet I am back on track to building those savings. 

Those savings will take a hit when I pay for these repairs, but not as much of one as I had anticipated. As well, they will not clean out my savings.

I am still focussed on building up my Mid-Term Account to the point that it will contain enough cash for me to live for two years. 

After that I will built up my Long-Term Account to the point that I can start to shop for land (after I put my target dollar amount in there).

I will do this, all while paying my current expenses and staying debt free.

The point is that I have plans and I need, for my own sanity and peace of mind, to build up those savings as soon as I can. 

My real sense of urgency is around fully funding that Mid-Term Account. With that, I can at least relax a bit, knowing that I have a bit of a cushion to land on.

I also, and mainly, just want to get my savings back on target and blowing a few hundred bucks to go to the mountains, when my favourite spot is not available is not worth it.

So, I will stay here, and save as much cash as I can, for my future, and my peace of mind.

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