    Worked two shifts, wrote a blog post, went backcountry skiing, maxed out IRAs, maxed out HSA, made planned 529 contributions, and shoveled the driveway.

    Spent the weekend at the beach with the fam.

    Trying to finish two books this weekend.

    Tidying up all financials for taxes, ugh.

    You set some goals, great!

    What are you doing to achieve them?

    Some 39 hours into the new year, I have:

    • Contributed $5k each to the boys’ 529 accounts

    • Made traditional IRA contributions as step 1 of the backdoor Roth for my wife and me (to be executed tomorrow).

    • Made taxable account investment for the month (also executed at end of tomorrow’s first trading day of the year).

    • Run on the treadmill, and fired up the cross country skis.


    At this pace, I should run out steam my mid-January  ?

    Cheers!

    Great minds think alike

    - Contributed $12K to 529

    - Traditional IRA contributions made for spouse and myself

    - I uncharacteristically took 2 weeks off during the end of December despite having no vacation plans. Nice to have some time just to relax, spend time with family, and catch up on some reading (finished 3 books from WCI's recommended list already!). Unfortunately, that also means taxable account investments will have to wait a bit since this month's paycheck is a little light

    - Just got off the treadmill while watching Bloomberg's Year In Review of the European markets. Smiled a little when the guy to my right "solidified his financial plan for the new year" after watching 30 minutes of the show

    Back to the grind tomorrow

    1. Read 30 cases (including 3 Abdomen MRIs) and performed three IR procedures today (income generation with a light quasi-holiday schedule at the hospital). Got caught up on my peer review work for the last quarter of 2016.

    2. Instructed a transfer of $6500 to my traditional IRA, as the first step of completing the Backdoor Roth IRA.

    3. Instructed the transfer of $3500 total to the kids' 529s.

    4. Instructed the purchase of $3000 in mutual funds in my Vanguard account.

    5. Withdrew money from my HSA account to my bank, to reimburse qualified medical expenses for the second half of 2016.

    6. Attended the wedding of my partner and good friend on New Year's Eve, with the official ceremony taking place at 12:05 on 1/1/17.

    7. Recovered from #6.

    8. Ran with my regular running group this morning before work, outside, in the rain (barb aimed to PoF for running indoors on the treadmill ).

    Happy New Year to everyone!
