Things that make me laugh that maybe shouldn't [Apr. 24th, 2009|07:24 am]

I bought $1000 worth of AMD stock in 2000. It's worth $371 today. *giggles*
My 401k Statement came last night. I've been putting in like 9% of my income since 2000 in there. Without interest had I just put the money under a mattress it would be worth much more than is in the 401k. *giggles*

I have maxed out my dental plan and my tooth hurts (#14) in front of the root canal I already had redone. I can't afford to get it fixed until next year so it has to stop hurting.

I'm actually entertained because it just doesn't matter that much. I mean, how much fret and worry have I spent trying to make sure I'm secure and can take care of myself. All of the carefully laid plans. Then I think about my memories of the last few years and it's camping with friends, it's the B&B Weekend with Craig, it's the Vancouver trip with Bel. It's the time I've spent with my Mom. Those things really aren't that huge. So, my point is, I worry too much about the future while the chance to make memories I care about slip away. I have set aside too much for the future and not enjoyed "now" enough. This year I hope to have more balance. I love being outside and seeing beauty in nature.

Hunks: I'm excited to see both New Moon and Wolverine and the new Harry Potter and I wish they were all out RIGHT NOW.
Bring on the muscle bound men!

Well, I am feeling really happy! Spring is here and as much as I thought money security was important, truth is, there is freedom in having enough to survive but not enough to worry about at the moment, you know?

I'm afraid to look at my 401k. I doubt I'd laugh. :(

I'm glad you're feeling better enough to be able to laugh about stuff. :)

Yeah, I'm not retiring right now, so no point in having a panic. I mean, the economy will recover, it's just going to take lots of time. In the meantime, I'm ok. I just can't stress about it anymore.
