Well I made it back home safe and sound last Saturday around noon. I got a much later start on the drive back and didn't get on the road until about 1030 PM New Mexico time. Considering I was hoping for about 2-4 PM that was a big difference. I was able to knock out about half the drive though before it just got too hard to keep driving. It probably wouldn't have been as bad if there was a bit more to keep me awake, but there isn't a whole lot in southeastern New Mexico and west Texas.
Once I got home I was able to take a short 30 minute nap and then it was time to get ready for the barbeque that my wife was having. It was great to get a chance to be with some friends and just enjoying life on a nice sunny day.
On Tuesday my wife and I headed down to Galveston to go spend some time at the beach as well as with some of my family that had rented a beach house down there. It's a shame that we didn't get to spend more time down there but it was still great to go. Other than the sunburn of course. This is another one of those things that just reinforces my desire to reach financial independence as soon as possible.
Thanks again to everyone that mentioned Passive-Income-Pursuit this past week. I appreciate it so much.
