Today we are heading to Encinal Yacht Club for our last visit. It costs us about $2,000 a year in dues. We've been thinking about resigning for about two years. Today is the day. To get there you're driving in bay area traffic and it's stressful. We don't like to drive at night anymore so we just aren't going enough to justify this expense.
The next thing that we are giving up is our private island. It has turned into work and nothing more. We need to simplify our lives and this is a needed step. With Encinal and the island gone it takes a lot of weight off our shoulders. No expectations. We so need to make things more manageable. This is a great start.
What will we have left? Delta Marina Yacht Club and IOBG. The only work I have to do is with IOBG and that's not a big deal. I'll be done with going through the chairs in about 2.5 years and then I won't have yacht club work at all. Hubby and I are waiting for that day.
In a couple of months our boat will be paid for. We'll have paid it off in a third of the time than the loan called for and we're pretty excited about that. That will leave us one bill...our mortgage and it's not all that much. It's a good feeling to be rapidly heading toward debt free. Hubby and I are on the same page where finances are concerned. That makes life far easier. We have both been married before to people that would spend what wasn't there. Doesn't work at all. For some folks there's just never enough money.
Have a fabulous weekend. What are you up to this weekend?
