stock market meets the drakestail & the millionaire mommy next door
November 29, 2007

Good ‘ole Drakestail keeps saying the same phrase throughout the story, most seriously toward the King who owes Drakestail cash.

Quack! Quack! Quack! When shall I get my money back?

That’s how I feel when seeing our investments take dives with the shaky Dow lately. Wise folks emphasize the long view when investing which I intellectually support and understand. But Holy Smokes I’ve really become addicted to torturing myself by looking daily at our accounts’ performance.

And it’s a habit I’VE GOT to break less I go bonkers.

So I laughed out load reading Drakestail over the weekend (…sucker for fairy tales which of note I didn’t become until after age 30). I emotionally, desperately wanted to some how chase the stock market as if it was an actual person – or the would be King being chased by Drakestail – and demand our lost investments back.

Alas the personal finance blogosphere has been AWESOME in rejuvenating and stabilizing my investment outlook. Take the long view sista.

If Drakestail were real and here today, he might say…:

QUACK QUACK QUACK THINK LONG TERM ON YOUR MONEY TRACK!
