Well, we all got Covid in July. We are all vaccinated and one booster. For me the fatigue and nasal congestion was the worst and it took me exactly 10 days to test negative. Covid is not fun even on its milder side. Frown

On a financial update, it looks like it will end with a little over $200 surplus. We met our savings goals and I was put $100 ($5K to go to fully fund) towards my Roth IRA. Summer are very lean for us because I do not work during the summer months. 

We have made the decision to start paying off our investment property starting August. The goal is to have it paid off in seven years at which time I can also start taking my state pension. Paying it off is an investment on our future income.  We have a healthy emergency fund.

    Sorry to hear you all got Covid, that’s no good! Great idea to start paying off your investment property.

    Glad you're feeling better after getting covid. Wondering if your symptoms would have been any milder if you'd gotten the 2nd booster. A friend of mine had scheduled a colonscopy and the (now) routine covid test she had to take 2 days prior to the procedure tested positive, even though she had no symptoms and had all her vaccinations/boosters.

    I'm sorry to hear you were sick, I hope you are all feeling better! My sister and her husband both had Covid recently and their symptoms sound almost identical to yours. They were both vaccinated with one booster. Smart to pay off your investment property. It is good to hear from you.

    Very sorry to hear you all have Covid. My allergist said it isn't a matter of if, but when for everyone. I hope you get to feeling better.

    Good plan on paying down the investment property so you can retire and have it paid for.
