Here are my current Financial assets as of the market close on August 12th, 2019:
The market has reversed course since the last update, with the S&P 500 falling 3.69% during that time:

On the jobs front, the unemployment Rate for July remained at 3.7%, with 164,000 new jobs created. Oil prices have fallen to the $54 level, with a local unleaded regular gasoline price of $2.49 per gallon at my last fill up. The ill-advised trade war with China is going swimmingly as expected and the FOMC reacted by cutting the federal funds rate for the first time in more than a decade.
On the financial front, it has been relatively quiet except for a recent distribution from my S Corp. I have a college tuition payment due shortly for the eldest Frugalson child, so that cash won't sit idle for long. With the continuing interest rate uncertainty and market volatility, I don't anticipate any notable financial moves in the near future.
As for the non-financial, we enjoyed a week of family vacation and are trying to make the most out of the last few weeks of summer. School is coming!
