Brrrr it’s a bit nippy out there today. Time to bundle up and drink hot chocolate in our Eskimo hats! Something tells me we’ll actually be doing exactly 0 of those things today…
Moving on to the real reason you came here today, boredom! Our cash accounts saw a little bit of action this week. Got those reimbursement checks deposited, made 207 in side income, and sent off some money to start funding my 2019 IRA (we need to set my wife one up too).
I moved 1000 into savings and reimbursed the tax payment that came out of the savings account instead of the business. I think we’ll be able to put another 1000 or maybe even 1500 into the savings account at the end of the month so we’re well on our way to new vehicle nirvana!

The stock market had a rip roaring good week and closed 5 days up in a row from last Friday through Thursday, the first time since September. There was a slight glimmer of hope from the China trade negotiations and then the Fed meeting helped as well by showing they’re willing to be patient with interest rates. We’ll see if 2019 shapes up to be better than last year. The Trumpdown continues though!

Expenses this week were pretty low other than us going out last weekend and last night. It’s rare that we go out Friday nights so it’s only higher than normal because they both fell into the same weekly roundup. Not included is the 250 I sent to the IRA since that’s more savings than an expense.

In other news we’ve finally crossed the extremely elusive 90k net worth mark! We’ve been flirting with it since October and then the markets dumped. But we’ve finally broken through! Next stop 100k!
