Financial milestone

Interesting how pleasing it is to reach one of those big, round financial milestones. After Thursday's market close I went over my spreadsheet and adjusted funds updating where dividends and interest had increased holdings and noted that we were $1000 above a milestone that DW has always held as significant. We have been FI for many years, but going back before the crash she always used to say, "sure, but if we had $X I would be really comfortable." She got $X this week. It will probably be gone next week or certainly in May, not to return until October, but it feels good while the black ink is there.

Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)
