|The month of August was a three paycheck month, but my income was reduced considerably due to the federal government furlough. So it looked like a normal 2 paycheck month. I am continuing to keep my TSP in the G-Fund for safety. I am concerned that the markets have reached a peak, and I am planning on keeping my money on the sidelines through September.
Also during the month of August I got slammed with gift giving. I have too many loved ones with birthdays at the end of August. Oh well, it's budget-able! It was also my one year anniversary with my GF on August 31, and she bought me tickets to the opening Ohio State football game. .. I'm thinking she's the one :) It was a fun but expensive day. It was the first time I have ever lost track of how much money I had spent in a day.
