So I spent most of the day having a pity party for myself. This sciatic thing is really bringing me down. Today was one of the most beautiful days I've seen in a long time. The kind that is made for long walks. Instead I bummed a ride home with one of my co-workers. Bah. Tomorrow I'm going to call my doctor and see if I can get a referral to a specialist that Ken found. Wish me luck.
In better news, I got my 401k statement from my former job today. I actually got an email over the weekend alerting me that my new statement is posted. I didn't have the balls to go look at it considering how bad the market has been doing. When the envelope arrived today, I bit the bullet and opened it. I was shocked to see I had a gain instead of a loss. Granted, it was a gain of $11.61, but it was still a gain. Hurrah!
