Once again, wedding festivities have precluded me from posting in a timely manner. I'm almost through wedding season (for this year), but as you can see, I had to dip in my E-fund to help finance it. My spending was out of control this past month, and I'm hurting, cash-wise. The only positive item for this month is the fact that my old employer just contributed just over $1,400 into my 401K for FY2009. I was holding out on transferring my 401K exactly for that reason, and I wasn't sure if it would happen, so yaaaay!

In fairness, you're still 2K up on last month - I'd call that a win.
