well I bought a new backpack, bought the bagger system for my new mower, I reached some of my new goals. I picked up 4 new accounts for next year, a small step towards towards the 50-60 customers i want. I thought i was really doing well this year but started adding things up and I have about 45k in write offs including gas/diesel pretty sure I grossed about 70-75k so looks like i will need to pay some taxes next year, and I will probably wait until the summer of 2014 to buy a house so I can show more income, to get approved for more of mortgage or maybe save up enough, and not even need to get a mortgage. Realistically There isn't a lot of bigger ticket things I need to buy for my business, I the new trailer would really help, but at 4,000-5000 its not really a big ticket item. I'm thinking a nice truck for next year maybe an 08-10 f450 crew cab dually, fully loaded with navigation, leather, sunroof, heated seats, everything and throw a 9.6 stainless v plow on it and, use the truck for mowing, and estimates, and whatever else it could be used for. and keep the 96 as a back up, maybe fix all the leaks on it, and finally put two fenders on it and have it repainted.
