Yippee! This is the first time I've fully funded my IRA (retirement account into which I can put $5,000/yr). It only took until November 30th do that. ;-) I hope to be done with it much earlier in 2011. Honestly, I don't know why I've been so lackadaisical about it in the past. I make only a very small salary, but we don't depend on that salary, so I should have been putting the $5,000 in there EVERY year.

You know that old saying about the best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago and the second best time is today? I guess it applies. Anyway, I'm pretty happy about this accomplishment.
