"I'm still here, dammit!" - a Quickie Checkin

My apologies to Ms. Sandra Bernhard for stealing her title, but that's how I'm feeling these days. Work has been consuming me a little more than my liking but a girl's got to make an honest living, no? Before I could write-up my first ever month end results post I got whisked to San Juan Puerto Rico on business (I know your heart bleeds for me, but I barely saw the light of day, so have some pity!) and I've been playing catch up ever since.

Some quick highlights:
  • March's budget (my first month) was a success
  • My new Roth IRA is established at Fidelity
  • I'm at 10% of my year-end emergency cushion goal
  • "Roth loan" credit card balance is more than 50% paid off
  • Overall allocation scheme for retirement portfolio chosen
Hopefully I can wrap a few details around some of this stuff before I head out of town tomorrow.


  1. Enjoyed the blog. Please contact me at if you have the chance.

  2. Keep the good work!
    Pay off that Roth Loan quick :)
    Although I have taken loans to invest (margin accounts) those are ussually risky propositions.

    However, a Roth IRA is an opportunity that CAN'T Be passed. You did well. Just pay it off :)
