CurveBall to the Rescue

January 2nd, 2013 at 07:41 pm

I didn't mention it before, but my central heat stopped working over the long weekend. It's been a bit chilly around here.

So this afteroon a repair guy came to take a look. He said my circuit panel is burnt out and needs to be replaced. He cannot say with certainty that is the only problem, as he cannot do much testing without the panel. So they are ordering the part and will call me to arrange a time for the work to be done. The estimate is $600.

Oh CurveBall, what would I do without you?

In other exciting news, I had $1200 odd dollars in cash in my traditional IRA due to dividends. So, I calculated where the money needed to go. It turned out I was under-weight in bonds and tips, so I bought 6 more shares of each.

I have recently added a page to my sidebar with my exact portfolio holdings. I will try to keep it current.

    Ugh. So sorry about the unexpected expense. I hope they don't discover anything bigger.

    That's exactly what was wrong with our furnace. I know how you feel!

    This is one reason I'm glad that I rent. Glad you had the funds available to cover it!

    Yes, the "joys" of homeownership. Smile
