A clearinghouse for my thoughts & ideas related to money matters & family finance.
Hi! I'm a certified nerd, specializing in space, finance, science, and anything else that strikes my fancy. I'm 32 y/o, DW is 33 y/o, married 5 years with 2 little boys (2 & 4 y/o). I was born/raised in Guam, DW grew up in Utah, and we currently live in Alaska...but as a military aviator, we move around alot. For fun I run, read, bike, SCUBA dive, snowboard, and travel whenever we have the opportunity. To understand the way I think, I'm a stereotypical INTJ personality type... Which generally means that I analyze & assess the world through a logical lens, and mostly keep to myself. Frankly, I can be frustratingly impersonal.
MY FAMILY FINANCES
- Military pay/allowances: ~$12k/mo
- DW's medical retirement pay: $1,600/mo
- Rental net income: $1,400/mo
