It has been about two years since my last entry. During that time, a parent passed away, I sold my house, moved my family, had a job transfer (same job in a new location), and had some major remodeling done to my new house. The remodeling really took a toll on my savings, but I have finally settled in (although I'm still trying to get used to the weather here) and am ready to work toward my financial goals again. It's good to be back. Merry Christmas!
