Weekly Money Check-Up

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on buying a new used car! We found a fantastic deal on a 1998 Civic that’s only had one owner who has every record of every repair or oil change on the car. The price was originally $3,300 but we managed to get it for $2,600. (Ladder, anyone?)

2. Today I am thankful to live in a country where I can vote, work, and live however I please.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was read for four hours yesterday. I am currently reading The Happiness Project.

4. I will consider this week a success if I make one of my new recipes for the month, find a frame for a painting I painted (more details on that later!), and organize my guest room.

5. My favorite 4th of July tradition is watching the fireworks. I know, how original. But I just love finding a great spot, (farther from the crowds, the better), putting down a quilt and watching the fireworks with my friends and family. (I just asked J what his favorite tradition is, and he said watching the hotdog-eating contest on ESPN.)

Now it’s your turn, my dear reader! Fill in the blanks in the comments section, or post it on your blog and link below. I (usually) update every Monday, but you can post it any day of the week. Thanks for participating!

    Well, because you are white and hetero … if you think that is true for everyone in the US, think again.

  • @ Barb: You are right, there are still so many injustices in America. However, compared to many parts of the world, we still are very privileged to be able to work where we want, vote as we please, and the live under a government that values freedom of speech.
