Calculating the Future

I've been a bit lax about posting to my blog lately. I blame my job (since I'm not taking my vacation until October, I wind up covering for a lot of summer vacationers) and my family. At least in theory, my 33-year-old daughter and her family are due to be out of my house by the end of the month--I can't wait!

I plan to post more often in the future, but in the meantime, here's an interesting, if depressing, look at some popular retirement calculators by Andrea Coombs at the Wall Street Journal.

So far, I haven't entered my current numbers into the calculators--too scared by this economy, I guess.

Your daughter and her family are still with you?? Oh I know you love her, but this must be tough and budget busting. I hope they are contributing to your food budget at least, how is your youngest taking this?

Hang in there.

It will be three months on the 25th! Too dang long! I want my house back. Heck, I want my life back!

They do get foodstamps and more or less feed their own family--but I can't have any food in the house of my own or it goes!
