Today was Copper’s day off, and what a full day it has been!
We are in full retirement planning mode here. After more than thirty years in law enforcement, my husband has decided to retire in March. Our budget will be getting a bit of an overhaul and we have a lot of paperwork to gather and file. The next six months will be busy, but we are more than ready for him to retire. I ate lunch at my desk today, reviewing what we’ve already done and planning our next step.
Our budget overhaul involves more than just planning for retirement, though. We added a newly licensed driver to our policy today. Eighteen year old boys are not cheap. They eat a ton of food, and their auto insurance rates are ridiculously high, but they’re also a huge blessing. Gosh, I love this kid! He’s worth every penny!
Dani made two batches of homemade ice cream today. Our favorite recipe for homemade chocolate ice cream is Schoolhouse Chocolate Ice Cream. For the Moose Tracks Ice Cream, Dani used this vanilla ice cream base and added a homemade chocolate syrup swirl and chopped miniature peanut butter cup candies.
Pending retirement, teen drivers and ice cream. What a great day!
