Another short post because OMG childcare. It was a long weekend, with both my goddaughter’s parents at work most of Saturday and Sunday (they are both in a really busy phase right now, which is why I’m here helping out). She’s really good and patient, on the whole, but I am glad she’s back to preschool today! My brain is exhausted from keeping up with her.
Anyway, I did have a little financial stuff to talk about, I discovered. This is a screencap of my Roth IRA, which has been at Vanguard for 15 months now. It’s actually misleading, because part of the growth up to that peak is my 401(k) contributions — they were at Vanguard until the end of 2015 at which point they were withdrawn and put into a Fidelity account when my whole employer switched providers. So the sharp drop is not a giant market crash either 🙂
The reason I wanted to post it is that the green, which represents the growth of the value of my contributions (in blue) is so much noticeably larger now! In March 2014 it was a barely visible line. But despite a couple of valleys, it’s encouraging to see that green becoming more and more sizeable; I’ve mostly neglected this account lately, except for depositing most of my tax return into it in Feburary, so yay.
