Assuming that 55 bonds/45 stock in that one account made your overall AA consistent with your target AA, if it were me I would jump back into the same mix but using VG funds. To the extent that your AA at the time varied from your target AA, I would buy bonds and stocks in proportions that would balance to your target AA.

In other words, use the event as an opportunity to opportunistically rebalance and then, whatever you do, don't look back.

I think short term bonds could go in now, but if it were me, I would wait for August thru Columbus day period for a better entry point for equity, at least if you want to put in a big chunk, but I suppose you could also start averaging in some smaller amounts now as well.
