All of my investment is in my Thrift Savings Plan, and I keep all of my money in the Government Securities. Slowest growth, but with the trouble of the last couple years, I have still made money, while others who went for the riskier portfolio's took big losses.
My profile isn't broken down monthly, just shows the year to date, and I've made about $120 in earnings so far this year, but with my other contributions, my funds grown by about a thousand dollars.
It snowed and rained all February, I won't be able to buy those new underwear again this year.:(
This is a reason to try to live conservatively and save. If a health problem strikes out of the blue, there needs to be a cushion. On the other hand, having that cushion also insures that there will be no gov't handouts.
Life can be cruel. It would be tempting to abandon our Republican beliefs of fiscal responsibility and fending for ourselves with our current situation, but not going to succumb to the entitlement mindset. I still wish that his company could have been a tad more helpful, but SR says they were just going with company policy. We'll survive, but not as nicely as we did before.
I have to smile when I remember the quote, "Some people are born standing on 3rd base and go through their whole life thinking they've hit a triple". I remember that when I see someone clipped by a foul ball like you guys were.
Keep on truckin' y'all. The Dispatcher In The Sky is still on your side. But you already said that. Sorta.:)
