I just got my degree and my income has doubled. Looks like with my wifes income, minus the standard deductible and 3 exemptions, we might break into the 25% tax bracket this year. According to the right - I should be far more saddened by the fact we will be in a higher bracket than by the fact I will be bringing home more money. But I'm not. The joy of bringing home so much more dough is outweighing the sadness of Uncle Sam taking a slightly bigger chunk of our money. What's wrong with me? I must like money I guess.
