Ok, so you guys have answered this already I am sure.......again.....and again.......and again......

But, everyone is different based on their circumstances and since you are kind people I am hoping to get an painless (for you guys) and a simple (for you guys) asset allocation set up. AND I know that the market has changed.......but I am figuring that I should still "stay the course", hanging out with mainly stocks.

38 years old. single female. will of course not retire until I am at least 65.

My current 403(b) from Fidelity is the four-in -one index

55% Spartan
15% Saprtan Extended market
15 Spartan International Index (follows MSCI EAFE Index)
15% Fidelity Bond Index.

What do you think? Acceptable in this current market? Acceptable long term when things pick up?

It would be sweet to stay with just one mutual fund (especially when I have only so many options), but I am open to whatever is needed.

I am aware that the significant amount of knowledge here can make a huge difference in mine (and others') bottom line, so I do appreciate you taking the time to respond.

Sooo... thanks!
