Graduation !

April 23rd, 2010 at 01:33 pm

Well she did it, and even early by a few weeks.

For those who don't know what I am babbling about, a short backround.

My wife had been playing the yo-yo games for several years with temp jobs that she was told were permenent hirings. After her last layoff, I asked her to go to school for a degree in a concrete field, one that was almost layoff proof...Cosmotology. She Graduated Wednesday after completing the required 2,100 hours of school.

While she was attending school I took a part time job; one for the extra money to make ends meet, and two because I'm not real good at sitting around with nothing to do.

Now I have to decide if I want to continue working the "part time" job, or start getting some things around the house done that I have kind of ignored for the past 11 months.

I think that I will continue working until football season starts lol. Then I will re-evalutate the situation. One thing I know for sure, the extra income has been very very helpful in my debt repayment plan. Oh well I'll see how it all pans out for the next few weeks.

Anyway, I wish to tell my lovely bride of 16 years Congratulations! (and I hope you pass the State Licensing Boards with ease). Damn 16 years already?

MyStockFund ?

Does anyone use this? Or know anything much about it?

http://www.mystockfund.com/

I am a Recycle bank member and this site is listed on their rewards list, here's the posting:

"Reward Description:
As a RecycleBank member, you have the opportunity to open a MyStockFund account with no annual or monthly fees. Additionally, MyStockFund will give you the opportunity to purchase as many planned purchases per month for the first year for FREE, thatís an additional $12.99 per month discount!"

I don't have an accual brokerage account anywhere, so i have been looking into several different options. The fees and such have held me back from doing any individual stock investing.

Thank You in advance.
