Back to check in!

March 23rd, 2014 at 05:09 pm

I've been off the radar for nearly 2 months, I'm finally ready to check back in to SA. Things have been rather stressful on the homefront, relationship stuff. With that on my mind I've been stalling on financial updates, in case I needed to change those. But I'm back at a point where I'm feeling stronger, strong enough to continue to make good decisions that will hopefully bring about more good things in my life. Wallowing doesn't make anything better, it's time to see the good in my life again!

I did contribute $5,000 to Roth IRA, however, that was for 2013. I may end up making my 2014 Roth contributions by April 2015. That will give me more time to focus on bringing up the savings in my long-term taxable account this year.

I'd like to find a church home. One that shares my beliefs and has a strong youth program. There are a couple of possibilities I've research, they are just a distance away. It would be nice if I could find a church nearby. I'm rather introverted and that includes at church, so I've always had trouble finding a place that feels right. I've never really been a steady church-goer, but I guess part of me wants to explore that possibility. (I started on this tangent because I noticed I haven't donated anything significant this year, that is something I was going to do through programs at church).

Work is going really well. Still non-stop busy during the day, but it is satisfying. This time of year is always exciting to me. The kids understand the classroom routine and programs, and they really start to show progress. This is the time of the year when the kids seem to be "growing" into the next grade. All the hard work slowly begins to pay off.

Lots of rambling, but it feels good to be back at SA!
