I have no clue where the month of February went. And here we stand on the penultimate day of the second month of the year 2022, trying to get the update of January in! If we were to get grades on posting updates on time, we’d end up with a big, fat F 😒
Anyway, January was a month to forget, in terms of how the markets performed, which directly correlates to how our NW is trending. More of that in February, and by the looks of the impending WWIII, for the foreseeable future. But we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
We started off the year with a loss of $55k which brings our NW down to the level from last October. I’m not complaining, just bench marking.
Here are our expenses from January.
Mostly expected numbers but for the Car category. We had the double whammy of paying our 6-month insurance premium for both our vehicles and we got a new set of winter wheels and tires for one of the cars. I don’t know why I haven’t gotten this sooner based on where we live – we average 50″ of snow and bitter cold every winter. Driving with this new wheels has been a dream!
I don’t remember a lot from January but our days were full – learning, doing things we like, which include a lot of (indoor) sports. The events of the last week or so is looming overwhelmingly in our minds. Our hearts go to to people of Ukraine.
Hope the next update is not too late in March and the world is a better place than it is right now.

You are an inspiration. I have been so bad at updating our net worth and our spending took quite a toll from my lack of visibility. Keep posting and I will get a new post up, as well.

It is a wonderful position to be in when your net worth correlates so strongly with the stock market. Except for those months when it’s not so wonderful! Keep plugging away and the tide will surely change, minus this WWIII business.

It’s all good – we take the “bad” months in the same stride as the “great” ones 🙂
