Thanks Peachy, I've missed my Fiscal Fitness friends. My real life friends only like to talk about saving money, investing money, and the like for only so long. I'm happy to report I've now been able to log in two days in a row.

TW - yes ambitious.

Ambitious perhaps but it is better to dream big and fall short, then to dream small and achieve it :)

We are back above the $1 million mark for net worth. We've briefly been above this number twice before, only to come crashing down shortly thereafter.
