I've been a tad distracted this week, plus keeping a very late schedule. (Bad Abby!)
But there have been some fabulous carnivals this week -- several of which were kind enough to include me -- and the great thing about the Web is that, well, once stuff is up, it tends to stay up.
So please do check out the following:
On "One Family's Blog": Carnival of the road to financial independence #3
On "Cultivate Positivity": Carnival of Inspiration and Motivation, 18th edition
On "MoneyNing": Festival of Frugality#161 -- Frugal Businesses?
Also, my friend Dory over at Can't Remember Diddly did a really wonderful, well-written piece. Usually I love her stuff because it's funny, entertaining, stream-of-consciousness stuff. This is actually a 180-turn from that. But impressive nonetheless.
Turns out this is the second Jan 20th that was filled with hope for her. The other one was all the way back in '93. I won't say anything more because I don't want to mess with the power that comes with the unfolding story line. But I would really appreciate everyone taking two or three minutes to read it. I think you'll all be glad you did.
Afterward, in case you're in need of a bit of humorous escape, be sure to check out her other post, a realistic Valentine.
