Passing the Quarter Pole...

April 5th, 2021 at 01:56 pm

What is it they say in horse racing... "Passing the quarter pole"?  (Actually I checked and that is when you are a quarter mile from the finish, so I have this backwards.  Oh well...) In any case, here we are one quarter of the way through the current year, spring is coming, and finances are doing well.  And its about all I can talk about as the downside to working from home every day is there is nothing much to talk about.

My investments started the year at 1,305k, but now my investments are up to 1,440k in one quarter. That an increase of 135k.  Invested 7+11.5 or 18.5 which leaves growth of 116.5.    That's more than I earn in a year, and much more than I take home - yikes.  This has to go down at some point, doesn't it???

Finally started working out in a gym again after a year away.  Its good for me as I was getting a bit soft.

Also finally emptied out a storage unit I had for a year & half.  They kept upping the cost, to where it was $200/mo. Now I can use that to pay bills as I am putting so much into Roth investments that I only get small paychecks up through October.

As I barely drive any more my car that I was going to replace I am just keeping it plugging along for now.

Just in a holding pattern.....

    I understand completely. I feel like I’m in a holding pattern as well. No travels to look forward to. I’m not making many money moves. I did pause contribution to international stocks. They haven’t done much over time. I didn’t rebalance, just changed my current contributions.

    I have felt like our lives have been "on hold" for the past year in so many ways.

    Good plan to get rid of the storage unit and use the rental money elsewhere.

    It is hard to find as much to talk about when you don't go anywhere and you don't do anything. But at least stuff is going up. Will it last? Who knows? All we can do is make hay while the sun shines.
