Made it Home!

house

I returned home from my former overseas job two weeks ago and I have to say I’ve found a renewed appreciation for life in the U.S. and with my family.  I’m now working a standard 40-hour week with weekends off.  While overseas, I’d typically work 6 days a week ranging from 60-80 hours.  Although 40 hours is a far cry from the retirement schedule, it is an improvement from my last work schedule.

Since I’ve returned I’ve been busy with family, my new job, and catching up with work on our house.  Once life settles down a bit and I have a routine established I should be able to focus more time on my blog again.  For now, I just wanted to pop in with an update.

On the investing side I added PM and CLX to my Roth IRA.  I’m getting closer to maxing out my Roth which is one of my goals.  Also, I’ve had an opportunity to play with the OptionsHouse app for Android-based smartphones and so far it is fairly decent.  I even used their app for my CLX purchase.  I promise, I’ll provide an OH review in the future once I feel like I’ve had enough experience with their services to provide an objective review.  So far, I’m pleased with what I’m getting from OH for $4.75/trade.  I’m also occasionally making smaller buys using my LOYAL3 account.

Until next time…

  1. I am anxious to try out options house, I am waiting for the transfer of the ROTH IRA to complete. Seemed simple putting in the info, but nothing cleared yet. Congrats on making it home!

  2. Dear Dividend,

    Glad to hear you were able to come back home. Spending time with family and getting a better work/life balance is important. Keep investing when possible and making more progress. We’ll get there.

    Looking forward to future posts.

    • SWAN,

      It is good to be home. I have less time to focus on my dividends but I feel like I’ve formed a habit to invest which is an achievement I’m pleased with. Thanks for stopping by!

      Regards,
