Congratulations, Sarah!

Sarah had her first day of work today! It only took her 26 years (hehe). Her new job is fantastic; she can work a compressed work week schedule which matches mine, so we'll have all the same three- and four-day weekends. She can work flex hours, and she can go to work on all those lame fake holidays she gets (San Jacinto day?!) and get comp time to use later.

Life is good, but I suspect the pressure will be back on me to provide more globetrotting adventures.

The coolest thing for me though is that she can have two different 401(k) plans at the same time (one is called a 457) and do a max contribution to each of them. That's $16,500 x 2 plus $5,000 in the Roth IRA for a total of $38,000 of tax free savings options per year just from her job alone. Win.
