I exercised about $5600 worth of company stock options. I paid for our new wood stove on my credit card. I will use the proceeds from the stock options to pay for it. My company’s stock price has been up lately, higher than it has been for a long time. And I have a little less than a year before the options expire, so I think it is a good choice. My credit card balance will be brought back to zero, and I hopefully I will be able to invest some more money next month. I am looking forward to getting back to buying stocks and funds!
I do plan on doing some shopping on Black Friday. I will check the ads and see what sales are going on. I know Walmart is supposed to have a super deal on laptops. I usually head to Circuit City, but I will see. I have been wanting a new laptop for a while, and it would be nice to be able to work on my webpages from my living room, and spend time with my wife, instead of being hold up in the computer room.
