I apologize for the unexpected blogging break! Please know that I have been reading along with your blogs (but unable to comment from my phone) for the past 2ish months. I have had some family medical issues and an overload at work. Things appear to be evening out for now and I am greatly appreciative.
I will do an update on my 2019 goals soon as it is almost the end of the 2nd quarter. However, I am down about 8lbs and my retirement account balance has hit a milestone of $40,000!! I was hoping that this would be the year that my retirement accounts hit $50,000, but I don't think that is going to happen. There is too much turbulence in the markets. I still have over $6,000 to contribute for the year.
I have had so many medical expenses this year, I'm not sure that I am going to meet my retirement contribution goal. I am getting new eyeglasses, contacts, I see the dentist quarterly now, I have to have a deep cleaning on my upper right teeth (in addition to the quarterly visits), I may have to have a crown replaced, etc. There are so many more that have just crept up on me. I can't even remember them all right now.
I also am unhappy that the Fed may be lowering the interest rate later this year. I finally was making a decent amount of money in my savings accounts!!!
Anyways, I have lots to write about, but I will have to let this be it for now.
