Net Worth Update: March 2014

This March begins on a bit of a mixed note for me.  On the plus side, as I’ve been hinting at this past week, things have been going much better financially lately.  I’m in line for a sizable tax refund of over $5000 this year.  I’ve also received a very positive ruling in my recent disability court case, providing for both monthly disability payments and back payment on the disability payments that could have been made starting in 2012, which should yield somewhere in the neighborhood of $20,000 when all is said and done.

Happy All Hallows’ Day, Everyone!  Yes, it’s easy to forget, in all the fuss over costumes and candy, but the original purpose of Halloween (or, All Hallows’ Eve, as it was once known) was to mark the day before the real holiday, All Hallows’ Day (or All Saints’ Day, if you prefer),which was meant to celebrate all… Continue Reading

Net Worth Update: September 2013

Wow, another month has gone by already.  I suppose I would talk about how quickly things went, how little time I felt like I had, how much more I wanted to get done…yadda yadda yadda.  Instead, let’s talk about how much fun these past few days have been.  I mentioned in my last Round-Up that… Continue Reading
