Might be my longest ever lapse in blogging! Plenty to catch up on but I will check in with a couple of positive bits of news.

My net worth is still over $1 million, and I don't think has dropped below that level since I last posted. It is an arbitrary number and doesn't mean I can stop worrying about money, but it is still a milestone to feel good about.
And... It should become easier to maintain growth in my net worth because I got a new job that came with a big raise! I had been letting my career momentum stagnate a bit over the past few years-- perhaps because of hitting that other milestone of a 6-figure income and realizing I didn't desperately need to make a huge amount more money to reach my goals. But now I will be making 30-40% more depending on my bonus. And depending on whether I get fired for failing at my new job! I hope that won't happen, but it will definitely present new challenges, and more stress. I think more and more about retiring early, so I need to stay focused on saving my extra income to reach that goal.
I will try to get back to posting more about other issues. If any loyal readers are still sticking around, thanks for bearing with me!
