We are back in NC and enjoying the spring that has finally arrived!  Well, I should say I’m enjoying it and Kyle is complaining about how hot the house is now without any A/C.  Nothing else out of the ordinary went on except we had a meeting regarding evangelism, one of my favorite subjects, which I’ll post on this week and we saw Smash Mouth in concert on Friday night at our university.

Pauline from Reach Financial Independence made a great point on why she is into PF, saying “I want to be successful… because I am lazy. Doing it the wrong way would take twice the time and energy, and honestly, I don’t want to put it in!”
