May 2014 Financial Asset Roundup
Here are my current financial assets as of the market close on May 9th, 2014:

| || ||2.42%|
The S&P 500 has rebounded over the past month, rising 2.48% since the last update:
On the financial front, my assets have once again surpassed their previous all time high from March, breaking the $1.1M threshold for the first time. I also bought my annual allocation of April 2014 issue Series I savings bonds at treasurydirect.gov and had enough surplus cash in my S Corp to make an initial 2014 SEP IRA contribution.
As for the other stuff, I am pleased to have signed on with my largest customer for another year. They're a great bunch of people who are a pleasure to work with. :) And now that the nice weather is here, it looks like we will be performing some additional upgrades to the Frugalson homestead over the next few months. A new Weber gas grill and a Bosch dishwasher are already on hand and it appears that some new kitchen counter tops are next. Hopefully the upgrades this year will be less painful than the swimming pool/new car/air conditioning fiascoes of 2013.
