Is it time yet?

Three months since I last checked in. Much longer since I ever considered buying shares. Of anything.

Is it time yet? Or is this simply a nation high on Obama? I'm staying tuned, I guess, but I'm not chomping at the bit.

Simplicity vs. fighting a bear market. Simplicity won. Instead of trying to invest and swim against the tide, I actually treated myself in 2008. New TV. New toys. Nothing extravagant. Just a couple of things to help me enjoy life and work a little more. I'm still a half-generation behind the times, as always.

But is it time yet?
