    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.

    In the Wonderful World of Conservatopia, the more you make, the less you'd pay.

    Congrats on your new job!

    And as a bonus, now you get to attach Dr. to your name.

    That's a real chick magnet if ever there was one.
