My friend that built a locost a few years ago said to get my car done now because as the kids get older it's harder because they do extracurricular stuff that takes time and schlepping them around and stuff.

What's that? Since I haven't adopted the idea of social media, mine has been practically non-existent.

Having a social life without social media can be done, it means you have to go out and talk to people

I will hopefully be retiring in about 7 years if things go well. That's puts me at 58 1/2. I will still work part time, just not full time.

I was lucky enough to pay off our home at about age 45.

I do not take it for granted I got lucky with parents that bought the house I'm in now and I'm renting to own from them. Should be payed off when I'm around 48 or so. I hope I can get myself in a position to do similar for my children

Houses in your area, they're practically giving away for free

If you have $500,000, I can get a (sub-par) house here. You donating to that cause?

I did move to a slightly cheaper area, however I can't move too far due to the job. Haven't found anything that gives me the benefits and flexibility that I have now.

In my area of Indiana $500,000 would get you a 5000sq foot house with a in ground pool (ice hockey rink for you) and a 4 bay garage.

Once I get my Security+ and ITIL 4 this year, I'll definitely be looking further out.

500 grand is a badass house almost anywhere in the US outside of some super wealthy areas.
