Slowest Week Ever  
I swear, I can't believe it's only Thursday. It seemed like Thursday two days ago. I always forget how quiet summer is both at work and on the internet.

One thing I did get done today was reallocating my 401(k) and then rebalancing it. We have a new company overseeing our 401(k) and we had a meeting a few weeks back. This guy is much more helpful than the last set we had, so I feel like I have a better grasp of the whole thing now.

I see there's a Woot Out at woot.com today.

It is moving very slowly for me too. Yay for the better grasp on 401K.

*whispers* What's a Woot Out?

*icon love*

They normally sell only one item per calendar day, but when they have a Woot out. they put a new item up every time the one before it sells out. I got some nifty headphones and remote during the last one.

Thank you :) I was really pleased at how that one came out. One of the first icons I ever made.

I've never heard of woot.com, so that's interesting.

It's a great icon. =)

I'd never heard of them either till about 6 weeks ago.

I should check them out. Not that I need any new places to spend money. ;)

Congrats on rebalancing the 401(k). Oh, and you do remember Retirement and 401(k) are how I make my living, right? *g* Feel free to ask questions, for you I may actually answer them.

By the way, what company is now servicing the plan?

I was going to ask last you visited Monterey, but forgot :)

Northgate Benefits. We used Morgan Stanly before that.

Mmm, must be a local TPA shop. Glad their communication guy is more helpful then Morgan Stanley.

Yeah, they're a local Bay Area company. Next up is increasing my percentage from my check. I haven't done that in a while.
Robertarobi_travels on June 19th, 2008 07:53 pm (UTC)
Yep, even a 1% increase adds up over time and with the tax savings it is barely a blip in a net check. And if your contribution is still within a company match level, even better.

It really is the slowest week ever. *pout*

I can't wait for tomorrow.

On a business trip in Birmingham Alabama all week. SO not only is it slow, its humid and just lonely.

Yay. I'm trying to take advantage of the silence to get some writing done. Glad you're around
