The Power of Sleep!

April 7th, 2017 at 02:42 pm

I've had way too many late nights this week editing a dissertation for a local nursing student. English is her second language, and her grammar and phrasing needed a lot of work. But it was an interesting project, and despite my issues getting her tables to merge into the original copy at 1am this morning, we're finished! She had the original tables, so all is well. I took the dog to have her stitches removed this morning, deposited some rebate checks, came home, and took a nap. Two hours later I felt like a human again and started cleaning the kitchen, catching up on laundry, and grading quizzes. Inspired (as always) by CCF's idea of a new savings goal, I'd like to try to save a big chunk alongside our regular retirement savings before DD heads to college and we consider moving to the UK. Ideally, I'd like to shoot for $100,000, but I'm not sure how realistic that is. The more reasonable figure is $50,000 but I'm going to aim big. Maybe I'm loopy on sunshine. So far it's been a NSD as the stitches removal was free.

    I'm thinking our goal is huge too! However, I know a lot can change over time, and if we don't shoot for something we will miss for sure. Doing this during the college years is going to be challenging, but I'm up for trying!

    Let's give it a try then, CCF. I'm hoping all my adjunct teaching checks can go there as well as any other freelance and other budget items we can scrounge.

    I think it sounds like a good idea. I am surprised how often the big goals have been achieved, for us. Something about just making a goal is very powerful. Moves it from the realm of "impossible" to "possible", I guess.

    You can always aim big and then decide later if it was too lofty.
