Net Update and General Update, February 2017

Hi! Yes, it’s been two months 🙂 I’m definitely not in a place where I think about my money every day, or even every week. Which I guess is kind of good? But after two months I wanted to drop in here with at least a quickie net worth update. Here’s where I’m at:

SAVINGS: $16273

CHECKING: $2595

INVESTMENT/RETIREMENT: $41648

TOTAL NET WORTH: $60516

Hey, excitement, I made it over $60K! Less excitement, I will very shortly be back below that due to paying rent and also paying for a car repair. It’s still “pending” in my credit card, so about $400 of that money in checking will disappear tomorrow when I pay that off. It’s my first test of the infinitely refreshing emergency fund concept. It does bother me a little to see my e-fund down around $3600 when it was just broke $4000 a couple weeks ago, but I think it’s still a good idea to just keep refilling it on schedule rather than scramble to get it back up to where it was ASAP.

I should also have a substantial freelance check, a little over $1000, arriving this month. The company has a really annoying new online system for paying out and it’s taking forever! But I don’t think it will be much longer; it’s already been over a month.

Generally, how are things going? Well, ok. I’ve been working really, really hard the last couple of weeks on the end of a big project at work and I turned in a not-quite-final draft of that earlier today. Still got a ways to go, but it was a big step. Speaking of work, I should have news on the job front pretty soon — but not today.

Politics…well. Sigh. I’ve been working on the resistance too. Although I had to back off the last couple of weeks and work on my work project instead of going to meetings constantly 🙂 I’m glad I’ll have a little more time for the next few months to do stuff in my community.
