As you guys know, I'm currently deployed to Iraq. I posted earlier about when I got a roommate. Well I'm posting now to say I have NO ROOMMATE!!!! Well kind of sorta. Her job moved to a different location but she will still coming back here every now and then. So instead of turning in her key, she kept it and will just let me know when she will be in town. It's a win/win for both of us. Don't get me wrong, I truey liked my roomie. But I like the idea of having this small trailer to myself for the short amount of time I have left. YEAH ME!!!

I don't know what has gotten into me lately but I just want to know where I stand financially by the numbers. I knew I was doing well with no debt except the mortgage but I didn't realize that I have a six figure net worth until I tallied everything up the other day. Well today, I checked my FICO score. I always get the free annual credit report but I never bothered with my FICO score for some reason. Well am happy I to say that it's 805!! This just goes to show you the power of debt free living.
One of things I challenged myself to do this year is to keep track of my net worth. I sporadically did it last year but this year I want to be able to look back in Jan 2011 and see how far I've come.
Well I've completed January's and I'm pleasantly surprised. I always knew I was doing well financially, but I guess just seeing it all laid out in one spot makes a big difference. I'm not trying to toot my own horn but when you're single and going at it alone then sometimes you gotta pat yourself on the back. I'm happy to say that my net worth is in the 6 digits to the good!
Do you track your net worth? Whether it's positive or negative, I think it will make you look at your situation a little differently.
