See what happens when I take an entire month off from posting?

Yep, first loss in 8 months…

Now the markets are certainly a likely suspect for causing the loss but my lack of posting (and related accountability) are the real culprit.

Yep, I spent freely and kept everyone here in the dark.

Bad smurf.

Anyway, here are the numbers!

Cash:
I haven’t let my checking account balance sit this low for over a year. I’m not happy about it.

Savings:
Last month I said that this would increase by roughly $1200. It did…and I then I took $700 right back out to “spend”.

Gov’t Bonds:
Probably shoulda taken the $700 from here instead…

Home:
I like to think the value went up because the lawn is freshly mowed but that’s probably not the real reason.

Auto 1, Auto 2, and Auto 3:
I’m not sure if it’s 100% accurate and I didn’t go through my archives to check but I think it’s hilarious that the value of the convertible always seems to go up at the weather warms up.

Credit Cards:
Okay, now this, I’m pretty proud of. With all of the spending I did last month, I still held this zero balance. It wasn’t easy but I did it and that feels pretty good.

Auto Loans and Other Loans:
Nothing to report.

Mortgage:
Just another minimum payment.
