Favorite Posts, Mentions, and Top Comments Week of 7July2013

I have had a really nice week!  I didn’t get enough done at work, though, so I’ve had to make up for it this weekend.  🙁  Last Sunday we met Cash Rebel on the way home from our trip to Madison, WI.  We had a pretty normal workweek; we’ve left open the chance of playing tennis anytime but it’s been raining every single day!  So disappointing.  This weekend was the weekend of catching up on our Netflix DVDs; we watched City of God on Friday and Apocalypse now on Saturday.  We also had a workday at a local elementary school with our church – I added a flagstone path to and mulched a section of a garden and Kyle weeded another section.

Cat from Budget Blonde pointed out on my post questioning whether ‘live like a college student’ is good advice that in her circles there is a line of advice that makes a lot more sense: “Great post! It reminded me of an oft repeated phrase around here which is ‘live like a resident.’ When we talk about paying off the medical school loans, we say we’re going to ‘live like a resident’ for a few years, meaning on around 50k a year, so that we can pay back the med school debt.”
