Sold fun car at a loss. If I ever decide to buy a vintage car again I'll just burn a pile of $100 bills, take a taxi everywhere for a year and still come out on top. Bought some nice vintage furniture which is worth more than I paid, good investment that looks nicer than a stock certificate... went a bit crazy with credit cards over Christmas, need to get out of that trap and back to cash only.

Treading water - ended up replacing the plumbing on the house and buying a new car as wife's car was not reliable. Took a vacation to get away from burning out at work. 401k barely going anywhere. Stressful month.

Replacement roof is on, check hasn't left yet. House price and 401k are stabilizing but that's about it. Billed a crazy amount of work this month which will help boost cash. After IRS bill, looking at investment property. Had a few great conversations which are making me evaluate getting back into Internet startup companies rather than just consulting - consulting's good cash but once you stop, it dries right up.

Closed a few big consulting projects which is helping with cashflow. Will use to build emergency fund and replace roof on house. Discovered you can buy up to 4 rental properties with 10% down through Homepath, so looking at getting started in that. The media is talking about further drops, warning people away from RE... seems like the best time in a generation to buy.

After the dust settled and we visited the accountant, I get to bump myself up an income bracket here on NWIQ (just). Sweet.

Bought house, which promptly dropped in value. Plan to hold for a while though so not too worried, hopefully we timed the bottom of the market right. Hired accountant, paid $17,000 in tax as I didn't do quarterlies last year. Wife not working to take care of sick relative, so our income is down too. Rough, but we're surviving.
