I know you were using outliner for budgeting at one point, how is that going?
The lady does it all now. I am a huge failure at budgeting properly, being appropriately conservative, and being honest about what I need and what I can do without.

We put a lot of money into my 401(k) and into our asset management account, where we’ve got a variety of index funds and a couple of stocks.
Heh. We had a nice dinner in Japan, and a nice dinner in the USA, but we haven’t really had the ceremony yet. Some day we’ll steal off to some lovely place and do that, but we’re not in a huge hurry.
