It's official, I'm done funding all $7K on my 2019 Roth IRA. I just set up a $120 contribution (one month ahead of schedule). I won't be able to begin 2020 Roth until next month. We have some unforeseen expenses that we want to cash flow this month.

School is not in session for at least a month here and there is talk that it will be for a much longer time. The governor of New Jersey instituted an 8:00-5:00 curfew today and Teaneck, NJ is completely quarantined. That's not too far from us but in a different county. We have 4 confirmed cases in my county. Frown

We have also spend a bit more on groceries this month but we've not gone crazy buying stuff. We have plenty of food for at least three weeks or so. Nothing is wasted and we will eat normally but smaller portions. Let's hope and pray (if you believe) that this passes soon. Please stay safe and take care of yourself.

    My wife and daughter are hunkered down at home. My daughter's job shut down on Saturday so she's out of work for at least 2 weeks.

    My job, of course, marches on. We're on the front line of this whole mess. We are seeing lower volumes, though, so that's good. With everyone self-quarantining, normal illnesses like flu, colds, strep and such are dying down.

    Hang in there.

    We've been praying that this ends soon. We are trying to do social distancing when we do go out. It is a scary time.
