Chitown is Moving & Moving Forward....

Hi Everyone!

I am alive and very well. These last two months have been super busy. Over the past two months, I've traveled for work, family and pleasure to Toronto, Detroit, Wisconsin, Dominican Republic, Indy and back to Toronto. Not to mention, I interviewed and accepted an offer for a new position with the Bank. It's been a whirlwind. 

I started my new job on Tuesday and it's been a busy first three days. I'm exhausted! It's compounded by the fact that my evening flight from Toronto to Chicago was cancelled Monday night so my friend and I (who was traveling back to NJ) had to rent a car and drive back to Chicago so I could be home for my first day of work. It took 8 hours with my lead foot and we made it back by 4am. I got her settled in the guest room and got about an hour of sleep before getting up for work. Crazy! 

I have some really good news....I signed the lease with the new tenants last night! Security deposit in hand, Chitown is moving out the condo! Hard to believe. I have my folks and friends coming to help me pack and move. I will need to hire movers for the heavy lifting. It's all coming together though. I made probably the best financial decision of my adulthood when I decided to lease my condo. I have a plan. I just need to keep laser focus to execute the plan. More to come. 

Hope you guys are doing well!

Good to see you blogging on a consistent basis! I think looking back, renting your condo will be a watershed moment - where your finances started to shift in a major way. Best of luck with everything.
