Got a full cash offer on the 3rd showing this morning up to $10k over asking. By 1400 tomorrow I'll know exactly what it's going for.

And one of my board games came in from Kickstarter today plus I tried this new pizza place and I had the day off work.

So yea. Today was a good day.

Happy birthday to me.

That’s awesome.

And so is that.

Just threw out three garbage bags full of all kinds of random crap and it was amazingly liberating.

This is where half of us go to a quiet place and sob.
Nooooo shit! I made the mistake of looking at taxes. I legit got nauseous. I'm going to doxx Rass and post his house next.
Those taxes... Before we built the house the 1/2 acre empty lot was $1K.

If my math is correct, the 1/2 acre lot my house sits on is taxed at over $7k. I don't know if you can take a percentage of land valuation towards total valuation and divide out. I need to move out NJ.

The kids school is the deciding factor for us. I could easily see the wife and I doing a house somewhere warmer in the winter and up north in the summer. Cost would be the same if we downsized and were smart about where we lived. It looks like I'll be remote permanently and the wife has had head hunters from Univ of Miami and Ariz State calling in the past year. So it's not much of a stretch.

...and the southwest.

It was cool growing up on the east coast, but I knew immediately I was never going back there full time once I joined the military. I'd never be able to save anything.

Its definitely a curse. I really like where we live now but its only because its central to where our parents and families are. If mine had moved to Florida or somewhere "away" from me, I'd have no issue re-settling somewhere off the east coast, atleast as a trial.

I think that's almost enough to cover both houses for me. (Though Utah apparently has a higher income tax than most other states.)
