Okaaaaaaay. Well, that wasn't a typical month by any stretch of the imagination, but it wasn't bad at all, either. I managed to spend less than last month in the food categories, so that was good. 


Networth IQ updated (see sidebar). Increases there as well--nice to see my retirement funds increasing by a little more than what I'm contributing.
