Financial Ramblings

Beside the 25th and the 26th, I did not take any vacations over the Holidays. The first reason is because I had to spend all my vacations on my MBA exams. The second reason being that it is a pretty smooth period of the year at work and I prefer taking time away from work when there is really work to do! However, I must admit that it has been pretty slow this week. Especially last Monday as it was Christmas’ Eve. Who needs a loan on December 24th anyway?

We did not even go through 2008 yet and I feel that I ate too much!! It’s been three weeks that I am skipping gym and we started our Christmas parties on December 1st. Since then, every week we had one or two supper, either with friends or with family.

My son is all over the place and he has been asking for more gifts every day now. I guess that at the age of 28 months, you hardly believe that Christmas is only one day. Why would it not be over the whole year, right? Because daddy would have to work 24/7 to pay for all the gifts 😉 The good news is that he is crazy about the train we bought him. My biggest gift this year is to see his sparkling eyes while running around the train table. I swear I can see magic through my son!

I am already starting to think about the upcoming years. I have several projects that I want to start, pursue or finish in 2008. I am taking the next weekend to put everything in place and I will surely write about them in a near future. It is important to have goals in life, but even more important to make plans to make them happen!

Carnival picks:

Even though it was Christmas, I thought it would not hurt to submit a few of my articles to some carnival. One of my favourite blog, The Digerati Life hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance. My favourite article was:

Returning to China and the Surreal and Dangerous Feeling of Being Wealthy at The Bag Lady

I also submitted another article to Fat Pitch Financials who was presenting the Festival of Stocks. I particularly enjoyed the following article:

My daughter is just a couple months older than your son. This Christmas was so much fun! It was great to see the magic of the holiday’s through her eyes. She still checks the lawn to see if Rudolph and his reindeer friends have eaten all of the oats we tossed for them on Xmas eve.

Thanks for the link and endorsement of my article.
