Weekly Update 37

on the Eno River

I was sick early in the week and had to miss some work, so that sucked.  I also derailed my normal way of eating because I didn’t feel up to cooking as much so I ate cheap carbs in place of some of my normal meat and vegetables.


Kyle and I had a nice Saturday. We served snack at an ESL ministry at a nearby church and then went on a hike and out to dinner with some of our friends.

I enjoyed Emily too’s comment on Choosing Our Own Destination.  It’s really applicable to all of personal finance! “You should dream big! I think you always will find money for what you have to do, but you won’t find money for what you want to do unless, well, you really want to.”
