I am relatively new to investing and am trying to find out where to begin with my retirement. I am a 37-year-old stay-at-home mom and have a portion of money I would like to roll from an account my former (government) employmer is holding into an IRA.

I would appreciate any and all comments on the following:

1. I plan on using E-trade because several people that I know personally are happy with their service. Does anyone have any comments on using them for retirement services?

2. Until I figure out a strategy for the long run, I have been playing with the idea of using the Foolish Four as an investment plan. Does anyone have any better ideas for the short run? Of course, suggestions for the long run are welcome.

3. I am trying to read as much as possible. However, with two very small children, I am faced with constant interruptions. With such limited time I hate reading down a dead end. Does anyone have any suggested reading that I should do?
