Our Barbeque

I have had such a good week!  I’ve been putting in long hours at work and have been rewarded with real progress.  Kyle and I also played tennis a couple times, which was really fun.  Regular playing is really shaking the dust off our games.  We need to find another local couple to play doubles with.


Not too much else is going on for us right now except that we fiiiiiinally got our new grill!  We ordered it weeks ago but Lowes apparently lost that part of our order.  Now summer can begin!  I can’t wait to have some friends over and use the grill.

G$, a longtime reader and first time commenter, told me that she found the story of my sister’s success inspiring: “This post inspired me to send my friend an email with resources about investing in a Roth IRA. We were discussing money and finances when I discovered that she didn’t have a 401(k) plan through her part-time employers. I am an avid personal finance blog reader and very invested in my own retirement planning and savings, so I wanted to enlighten her while she is still young (23).”  Thanks for you sharing how my post helped further your conversation with your friend, G$!  And all you other readers who don’t comment, please come out of the woodwork once in a while!
