Dreary Monday

I got to bed before midnight last night and ended up getting up before eight this morning feeling pretty well rested. It’s kind of nice that I got an early start in that I have plenty of laundry and picking up I can do before Mary comes over.

The weather today is kind of dreary and overcast. The doppler radar doesn’t show any precipitation on this side of the state although they are predicting some showers later.

Weekend Gaming

I got in a fair amount of computer gaming this weekend which was pretty fun. I actually finally advanced to the Protoss levels and beat the first couple of those.

We had four of our Macs networked together out at the lake, but we never actually got around to networked StarCraft. We did get in some serious Marathon action though.

Mary made it home safely last night, now we just have to figure out what we’re going to do tomorrow.

Lake Action

The lake was cold today, but we still got in some good jet skiing, frisbee throwing, and paddle boating.

We also got in quite a bit of movie watching. During the afternoon we saw The Dead Zone and I finally got to see Jerry Maguire.

Weird Hazy Day

Today is the day of Mary’s big presentation in Chicago.

Mary reports that her presentation went really well!

It’s kind of a weird hazy day in Spokane today. It’s definitely not as nice as it has been the last few days. It was still pretty sunny and warm on my bike ride home though.

Looks like I’m going to be headed out for a little lake action this weekend with Steve. Jet skis, computers, and friends- what more could you ask for in a weekend? Mary being back from Chicago of course! LOL

Retirement Planning

I finally started looking at all my retirement investment information for work. I’d been putting it off for a while, but since I need to have it done by the end of the day tomorrow I figured I’d better decide.

The main two options I was evaluating last night were Fidelity and TIAA-CREF. Both are pretty good options, but I think Fidelity isn’t as flexible about letting you move your money around between funds.

Mary graced me with another phone call last night which was of course very cool. It sounds like the highlight of her day was almost getting her head taken off by a cross carried by a man dressed like Jesus who kept walking up and down the street near her hotel.
