Now my concern lies with my spouse's Thrift Savings Plan. He has the option to choose among three investment funds. 1. Government Securities Investment Fund
2. Common Stock Index Investment Fund-invested in a stock index fund that tracks the S&P's 500 stock index.
and 3. Fixed Income INdex Investment Fund-


I am with the VA's thrift savings plan.
I also started cautiously with an egual spread between 3 options. 2 years ago moved 100% to the C fund... our stock fund. True it might go down .. but it should do more than 4-6% in a money market for now.
I believe I can change the distributions monthly. Fortunately, I have been too busy to "mess with things", and over the year it did about 18%.

It's almost time to grow tomatoes :)
