Despite some volatility, the S&P 500 has hit all time highs over the past month, up 0.56% since the last update:

Of course, the market activity today could take a nice bite out of that gain :).
On the jobs front, the unemployment rate for May reversed course and rose to 7.6% (an uninspiring number at best). Oil prices have been somewhat flat (around $95 per barrel) with local gasoline prices following the same pattern.

On the financial front, things are pretty much on cruise control. For once, I have no pending tax returns, retirement plan contributions, savings bond purchases, CD purchases, or S Corp equity distributions that need to be taken care of. I do have some CDs maturing later this year, but that's a minor event that is a few months away.

As for the non-financial, things are pretty quiet on that front as well. I continue to whack away at my backlog of home improvement/repair/landscaping projects, and it appears that Mrs. Frugalson is getting ready to spend some money on some upgrades for the house. Hopefully my bottom line can survive the hit!
