Market woes

Filed under: Uncategorized — gijanefinances @ 8:54 pm

My Roth has declined 16-20% over the week.  I have seriously considered suspending my contributions to build up reserves.  The market is not giving me much hope that my house will be sold anytime soon.  The realtor held an open house on Sunday.  I can’t wait to hear if anyone even showed up.  I had a dream that 25 people were there, but no offers.  Perhaps my listing price is too high?  I am thinking about lowering it about 5%.

October will be an expensive month.  I have to pay for Japan’s GCI for my car to the tune of $400 (it is good for two years).  My rental home flood insurance increased from $200 to $277 for Louisiana.  I went to the SOS band over the weekend–$107.  Spent two nights the hotel for $170.  My AMEX already has $136 on it.  And to add insult to injury $870 for my empty house on the market.

Where’s my bailout?  j/k.
