Welcome to our February net worth update. We had another productive month. We took on a DIY product to paint our living room. It has been several years since it has been updated. We went from a dark chocolate color to a light green. We painted the fireplace, including cover and mantel. It looks like we live in a totally new house. We also purchased a new couch with money we received from Christmas. The old couch was ten plus years old and had lost its spring.
After Living Room
We still have one college decision down and one to go. My son was disappointed to learn he was not accepted too one of the schools he considered his top choice. The school has a great computer science program, but very competitive to get into. It has a 40% acceptance rate. My wife and I agreed it was probably a good lesson for him to experience now, but has set us on a bit of scramble mode. He has some solid secondary choices, but a few that are all equal, so we need to dig in and make the best overall decision. More to come.
Local scholarships are due today. Both my son and daughter are applying to at least a dozen each. I’m sure I sound like a broken record reminding them that any amount of free money is good money. Fingers crossed for positive results. We won’t hear back until June.
