January is over! We were sick on and off for about 3 weeks, but we’re all much better now. It was a very slow month and we spent most of our days at home. Mrs. RB40 enjoys these slow winter days because she can catch up on some of the things she’s been meaning to do. The summer months are so much busier for us because there are so many activities to do. Anyway, it wasn’t an exciting month at the RB40 household. We went out to eat a few times and that was about it. Oh, Mrs. RB40 took me to see The Book of Mormon. That was a lot of fun, but there were many cringe worthy moments. Mrs. RB40 should have told me the show was from the creator of South Park. I’d have expected plenty of offensive jokes, then.
On the financial front, January was a great month for investors. The stock market shot up most of the month and went down a bit over the last few days. The pullback probably will continue for a bit, but I’m not worried. The economy is still doing great so I think the stock market will come around. I’ll keep contributing to my 401k and not worry about the stock market blow off too much. We did very well in January and I hope February will turn out equally well. Okay, let’s go over my 2018 Goals first and then see how we did with our cash flow in January.
This is my goal scheduling spreadsheet. Last year, I found that I needed to start these goals in the first half of the year. If I wait until summer, they just won’t get done. January was pretty slow. You can get a quick status update
