Had a meeting today at work with one of the reps from the company that manages our pension plan.  He directed me to their website where I could look at the fund where my $$$ are invested.  Turns out I own shares of Google, Microsoft, Lowe’s, Target, and a bunch of other really good stocks!  Wow!

He is going to work up a plan for me that should result in a more diversified investment plan, resulting in more $$$ when I decide to retire.  Based on everything he projects, I think I’ll actually be able to afford to retire someday and my sons won’t have to worry about taking care of mom.  Amazing.
