One horsefly swatted

Saving log - 4$ tip box (starting anew!)
Spending log - 2$ coffee, milk + 13$ lunch chirashi

I must have semi-overdid it in the gym "classes" this week, everything's stiff - legs, stomach, arms right at the side of my armpit. Didn't even think I had muscles there. But my upper arms don't jiggle. Managed to drink water and eat salad for dinner, but I got caught with an afternoon cookie. The cookie was worth it.

Needed the relatively expensive chirashi (strewn sushi). Its brain food and I needed my brains today. I managed to finish the first draft of a very complicated company match calculation (company shall remain nameless, but not link-less, I'll be mean that way). Sometimes doing these things is like having a proctologist do a root canal - not only are are you screwed in an unexpected way, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

But I'm happy that its done, and now I can concentrate on catching up.

Like Ima Saver, I'm finding that my big check is taking soooooo long to get posted. A piece of it was supposed to post on Friday and it still hasn't. What gives? I mean its a big check, but cripes its coming from another bank, and not a tiny one at that! I found a partial explanation on the site.

Got the TIAA-CREF 1099 form that had all zeroes on it. I moved the 403B money into an IRA so it was sheltered on both sides. Cost more to mail it than I'll be using it.

    Was transferring the TIAA-CREF money into the IRA fairly easy? I've read on another discussion board that they make it hard to get $$ out and into IRAs, and reading that stopped me at one point from trying it. If you found it relatively easy, maybe I'll think about it again. Performance hasn't been bad but I prefer Vanguard's larger variety of funds.

    Dido - I called them to ask for the forms and they of course tried to talk me out of it, gently, before mailing me the forms. They did tell me that depending on the type of account and the contract that they had with the school, sometimes the account was not transferable into the IRA. I don't think any transfers are particularly easy - they do want to keep your money in their fund.

    Thanks for the info, Baselle! -Dido
