Welcome to my mid-year goal check in. There have been several friendly reminders by others who are checking in on their goals either monthly or mid-year, and I thought it about time I did the same.
Given our reason speed bump with overspending, a checkup would be great to help re-evaluate and get us pointed in the right direction for the second half of the year.
In my 2016 goal recap and 2017 look ahead. I spelled out that 2017 was going to be uncharted territory for us. We will have two children heading to college. Obviously where they attend school will play a big role on our 2017 finances. What I underestimated was the emotional side of the end of high school.
All of the end of year and end of high school events for our twins, prom, graduation, etc., were not accounted for in our plans. Without a plan we typically underachieve.
We are hoping to use the mid-year check in to reset a bit and get back on track.
