Unopened Retirement Investment Statements

With news like this, I’m considering leaving my retirement investment statements unopened.

After seeing my monthly investment losses of $2,000 and more, and with the stock market still sliding ever more downward, there’s no point freaking about money lost that I won’t even touch decades later.  I figure, if the money’s there, the money’s there.  And — eventually — this horrible bearish/ recession/ depression/ deflation/ stagnation/ what-have-you market will turn around one of these days, if history is any harbinger of what’s to come.

Until then — gotta pay off that car note (JP Morgan Chase), mortage (Wells Fargo), and student loans (Department of Education and Sallie Mae) and hope none of these institutions fail!  🙂

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.
