Obsessing over 401(k)

Is it wrong that I check my 401(k) after the stock market has a big rally? I suppose it makes me feel better to see the numbers going up instead of down.

I’m up 14.5% for the this year, which would be totally kick-ass except for the fact that it lost almost 40% of its value in 2008. Oh well, them’s the breaks.
