Weekly Update 7

Not too much exciting stuff went on this week.  Kyle and I were working pretty hard so I didn’t spend as much time in the PF blogosphere as I usually have.  I saw some exciting positive results at work – I like my job right now.  🙂  We watched our basketball team flail out of the NCAA tournament; we’re still watching but now I’m cheering for the other teams from our conference.  On Friday night we babysat for our friends’ one-year-old – 45 minutes of parenting practice!  The child had been very well-trained and we had a great time!     Posts I Liked Well Heeled Blog wrote a post on what she thinks a college personal finance curriculum should include.  A very interesting proposal!  Head over to her blog to add your thoughts … Read entire article »
