Achievement unlocked: Emergency funded

We've reached another financial milestone!

After reaching the debt-free (non-mortgage) point last year, our next big goal was to fill up the emergency fund. We had a target of 6 months for the emergency fund and today we made it to that goal.

Connie's been doing a great job at keeping us on track and I've been doing a pretty decent job at resisting the temptation to buy all the electronics things to play with out at the workbench.

It's a good feeling having the emergency fund filled up. It gives me a sense of security that I don't think I've had before. It's nice knowing that there's this financial cushion behind us and that if anything major happens, we won't have to scramble much to deal with it.

Hopefully we won't need to tap into it, but it's there if we need to, and that's a good feeling.

Now our next goal is to get back to funding the retirement accounts.
