IRA Oops

June 15th, 2024 at 03:20 pm

Not a huge deal, but I just realized that when I set up my automatic investments for the year that I directed my contributions to go to VTIAX instead of VTSAX. It's too late to fix for June as my contribution is processing, but I don't I'll switch it back to VTSAX as soon as I can. A good reminder to check your investments periodically to make sure things are going where you intend for them to go.

Pay Increase

June 9th, 2024 at 04:28 pm

My step increase that was due June 2nd is now effective in my HR portal. It works out to $141.60 biweekly and an annual raise of $3,681.60. It's nice to receive a little extra cash as I build my home and have the associated moving & furnishing expenses. I am resigning from my PRN position effective the end of July. I don't think I will pick up anything once I move, until maybe the New Year. 

House Update 🏡

June 2nd, 2024 at 04:41 pm

We're approximately 60 days or 2 months out from completion. Projected date is 7/31/2024. Brick & stucco have been installed so the exterior is really taking shape. Drywall has been delivered.

Now the interior progress starts to happen. We have tubs & fireplace installed, but no kitchen appliances. I think once they put in appliances they start locking the doors, so I won't be able to stroll through after hours. Darn. I love watching the progress.
