Break time from the hustle and bustle!

Decided to take a half day at work and just take a break from the overwhemling paperwork that accumulates. My wife's friends decided to come over too, during the same time... so I guess I'm playing babysitter for the time being. This week, moneywise our allocations have been all messed up because when I went on leave, they paid me entirely for my vacation, so now when I take half days, I dont get paid at all. This was interesting because I expected my check to be about $200 more since I took some time off last week. Did I mention that I get paid weekly? That helps the process because it allows me to take a look at our financial picture weekly rather than biweekly or monthly. Anyway, I should be back on track next week with my pay and hopefully the "system" won't screw up again. Since its a bit muggy today, I think I'll go for a walk before the rain starts coming down. I really just want to get out this weekend and maybe get a game of poker with the guys.

Small update on the 401k: Maxed 6% matching with employer, and nothing else.
