Weight

Weight was 180 pounds today so no change from last week. I managed to go jogging twice this week which makes me feel really good because exercise is one area that I haven’t kept up with over the last month or so. This is mainly because of a never-ending cold but I’m back on track now and I hope to run twice a week.

New Baby

A big congrats goes over to Keith at The Money Gardener who just had a little baby boy a couple of days ago!

Carnivals

Plonkee hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance this week and listed our submission “The Myth of Weekly Mortgage Payments”

MoneyMyths hosted the Carnival of Money Stories and included my post called 2007 Investment Returns (hey you gotta enter something!).

Group writing project

On Friday I’m going to be participating in a group writing project – “The Money Matters for All Ages” series. This is a pretty neat set of posts which deals with money matters for different ages from tiny tots all the way up to retirees. The posts which have been published this week have lots of great advice about how to teach kids (of different ages) about money.
