Favorite Posts, Mentions, and Top Comments Week of 11August2013

As I anticipated, this week has been consumed by work work and more work.  As often happens in these stressful times, something piled on top – Kyle came down with a cold and then gave it to me!  Being in lab all day Saturday with an achey chest and stuffed nose is no fun!  I’m falling behind schedule on meeting my deadlines so I need to push even harder this upcoming week to get it all done.  🙁


The one bright spot in my week (which Kyle unfortunately missed because of his cold) was the potluck we had in place of our normal church small group meeting.  I got to eat a ton of delicious food (mmmm crab dip) and ended the evening sitting around a bonfire talking about life’s big questions with two friends.  Don’t you just love the conversations that are spurred by hanging out in the dark with your friends?

Remember the preposterous situation I proposed in Would Someone Date You After Seeing Your Taxes??  Well Shani B has been in almost exactly that position and can tell us with assurance how she reacted! “This year this scenario was put on the table enough times that I can say that it DOES make a difference, CALL ME SHALLOW IF YOU’D LIKE. I need someone who is financially content, has pretty good job security, is thinking about their future (Investments, IRA’s/401K, etc.).”
