Is this from the start of the year or some other baseline?

It's from the start of the year. I use Excel to chart my progress and plan for the future. As much as anyone can plan for the future with as little as I control in the world. Of mice and men . . .

I don't include my house in my retirement plans at all. It is a place to live and not an investment. True, it has grown quite a bit in value, but that could also go away. Right now it would be cheaper to rent, but that just isn't me. I like to own a house, or in my case, 1/3 of a house with the other 2/3 leveraged. I also have two kids and one wife, so owning a house is a better way to go for us. Or that's my opinion anyway.
