Goodbye extra money

I am sad. I just raised my federal tax withholding so we we'll be okay come tax time. I used one of those IRS calculators and it said if I didn't make any changes we'd owe an additional $6,000 in taxes next April. Bah bah bah.

I can't wait to buy a house so we get some of those awesome tax breaks. Being married with both spouses working decent jobs seems like a bad thing. And it's especially bad since I don't have a 401(k). I lose out on all sorts of pre-tax goodness.

Eh. It's a small, stupid thing and everything is fine. At least I'm able to tackle it early, although my next paycheck is sure gonna sting.
