I've been quiet over the last several weeks. I've been wanting to blog but with the holidays I have found it difficult to sit down and focus on what to write. I really haven't had anything meaningful to say either.
The holiday's came and went. It was a rather quiet holiday. I did not have to do too much shopping and work was rather subdued since most of the staff was out. I try to make some headway with my reviews but somehow found a way to not get very far on those.
That is my challenge for the upcoming week. I have to get through my employees reviews. I once again find myself doing way more reviews than I want. I think it is important to do a good job with them, so I'll get them done right, but I often just wish I could wave a wand and have them done. The tool my work is using even has something similar to this but I feel it is a cheap way out so I refuse to use it.
I have been EXTREMELY quiet when it comes to my trading activity. I really just don't know where this rally came from and now have no desire to get in at these levels. I've waited for the pull back that never came and it looks like i missed out on some really great gains. Lesson learned but no need to compound my mistake by doing something foolish now. I'm looking carefully where to invest. I recently opened up a new brokerage account, separate than my other one, so that my wife and I could invest together. I opened it up at Schwab, so now I have accounts at most of the major brokerage houses. I'll give a review of them shortly.
So I'm back. Hopefully I won't take a hiatus as long as this one again.
