The Wife and I met in college and have been together ever since. We currently have two amazing children, and together they all keep me focused to accomplish my goals and objectives.

I Can’t Believe I have Been Blogging for 4 Years

On August 5th of 2008 I put up my first post.  I had no idea if anyone would read about my journey, nevertheless care about what was going on in my life, but I wanted to share my thoughts with whoever wanted to read them.  Since putting that first post up I have seen somewhere between 570,000 and 630,000 pageviews (analytics vs sitemeter) and while that is probably a day’s worth of views for a news site I am pretty happy with it, especially since most of the first year or so I was getting under 15 page views a day. I [...]

The Wife’s Confusing View on Credit Cards

Post by The Wife I am not a huge fan of credit cards, but I am aware that sometimes they are necessary.  It has been trying but I have learned over time that a credit card doesn’t always have to equate to an uncontrolled amount of debt.  Credit cards can provide security in an emergency, and better yet they can get you free stuff! But all the good stuff credit cards can bring get voided if you abuse them. And I am sad to say I think one reason America is where it is today is because of the misuse of credit. [...]

Musings of a Work at Home Mom

This is a Guest Post Written By The Wife.  The Wife also writes at After The Alter I have always loved working from home. Although sometimes challenging, working from home has allowed me many luxuries that people who work outside of the home don’t have. Don’t get me wrong, I do sometimes miss the camaraderie of an office, but how many people can say that they can work sometimes in their pajamas? I’d say not many! Some people have asked me if I have ever considered renting office space.  The honest answer is no! With how is it is to communicate in [...]

Regardless of your Financial Situation Don’t Forget to be Happy!

My sister asked me the other day why I sounded like such a "Debbie Downer" all the time when I spoke to her on the phone. I apologized and told her I just have a lot on my mind. Later in the day she sent me an e mail with the "Dance Like Nobody Is Watching" Poem. I know it's nothing new, and that most people have already read it, but when I read her e mail I cried. Not necessarily tears of sadness, but tears because the poem is so very true. I wrote a post a while back titled Remembering [...]
