It’s Been a While…

If you follow Crystal Clear Thoughts, you probably have been keeping up with me at Budgeting in the Fun Stuff.  If not, here’s a quick summary of life now.  :-)

  • I went self-employed in July 2011.
  • Hubby joined me in January 2012.
  • We had our dream house built and moved in October 2012.
  • We paid off our first house in full in early 2013.
  • Both of our puppies died in early 2014 (Miss Doxie was suffering from dementia at age 15 1/2 and Mr. Pug had a lung torsion at age 11).
  • I started a professional pet sitting business in February 2014 and make about $1500 a month on average with it now.
  • We supplement our unstable online income with our rental home, renting out 2 bedrooms in our own home (5 bedroom house), pet sitting, and sports’ officiating (hubby’s side hustle).
  • We enjoy self-employment and will continue it as long as possible.
  • In our social life, we take about 3 vacations a year, have a close group of friends that we hang out with weekly, our families are doing well although we did lose 2 grandmas in the last 5 years, and my first baby nephew was born in March 2015!

Life is good right now.  I am healing from back problems and able to walk and sit again.  Hubby is officiating sports as much as possible and helping me with pet sitting.

How are you?
