Overdue Update

I somewhat expected to have long spans where I didn’t write in this but months seems a bit long.  Winter has been rather lacking from what I expect from a typical winter but I’m not sure if I’m happy or upset about it.  On the one hand I don’t have to walk to the train in the snow and weather and it hasn’t been cold to the extreme (note: it has been cold) but on the other hand it isn’t very much like winter these days.  It’s the first part of February and I think Chicago has received only a few measurable snow falls this season.  I do look forward to the snow each winter and I think the worse the winter is the more apt I am to be excited for spring and summer.  I’m looking forward to playing outside this spring and summer but I have to ask myself if I am looking forward to it as much as if we had a bunch of snow this winter.  As mild as it has been I can’t imagine more winter weather this year.  It’s been in the 50s the past week or so which is highly unusual.

Anyway this update is short to say that I am still around and I’ll hopefully get back into the writing mood from time to time.  I am also going to start reading my next book, Jim Cramer’s Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World.

Jim Cramer - Real MoneyWhy am I reading this?  I’ve read this book before but I want to get a refresher in his books because my 401k starts at work soon so I want to be prepared to make the appropriate decisions.  The stock market is fascinating to me.  I’ve played around with it a little bit and I’ve had some success in it.  I just don’t devote enough time or money to make it really worth my while.
