Retirement has gone up to $58,000.69, a difference of $1136.27 since last payday. All of that was contributions from DH or work, except $52.27 It was a rough two weeks, but the IRA finished ahead of where it was last payday by $15.31. I hear the next six weeks are going to be very bumpy for the stock market. I hope it is just a rumor.
I am really missing the stock market from the 3 years pre-Covid. I have a feeling the only reason we will be moving forward at all this year is going to be mostly due to contributions, not gains. Oh, well, we hold as always. No panic selling. Keep treading and we'll keep our heads above water. This won't last forever and the recovery period will gain ground eventually.
Tomorrow I get to ditch the darn mask. It's due to be 100 degrees F and I need to go grocery shopping, so thank goodness. I finally feel like myself again. The Moderna vaccine was really hard on my fatigue levels, both times. I was exhaused for 12 days each time. I had horrible bone aches after the second shot for 36 hours. But those were my only symptoms. I have waited out my time, so now, in my state, the fully vaxed only need them in medical facilities that require them. It'll be weird to show my face again, but it has been lovely seeing other people's faces the last couple of weeks.
