Wow the stories are really emerging here. It is very interesting to read about other people working like I do to survive. YES YES I too am contemplating everything in my life. Where I have been, where I am going, how do I get there, what do I want to do with my life.....................everything. I agree, I too, am in the throws of a crisis. I too am not needing "toys" or other things, I want peace in my home, I want to work less and "breath.". I want to take more vacations ( I have had 2 in ten years). College costs are very high. We were spending around 20,000 per quarter for the 4 in college but I had to wipe out my entire retirement to help and now there is nothing left to do it :rotfl: and I thought it would be enough money.:chair:
My kids all work and have worked part time during school and full time in the summer to help and their money helps but they all have loans on top of that. I had hoped to save them having loans like I did but that won't happen either.
I drive a 99 car/praying it lasts and we don' t go out except once or twice per month........
Seems crazy to me.
