And it's June. Just like that, half the year almost gone. That means I'll get a year older soon. Dang. I'm going to be 40 in 5 years. 40!
Okay, after a week or so of looking for reasonably priced houses, I think I'm done for now. After doing rough calculations, the cost of owning a house right now with the down payment we've got will result to us paying slightly more than our current rent. Eh, no thanks.
I know that it's just a forecast and things can easily change. We plan on doing simple and cost-efficient summer activities like tent camping, visiting other parts of Oregon, maybe a weekend trip to Seattle, and exploring Portland neighborhoods. Do I feel good about that? If I think about the money saved, yes; but not very much enjoyment outside of that perspective. We've already gone to a fair, so to go to another would be overkill. Maybe I'll just go shopping. Haha! :-D
