We had a rather busy week in terms of after-work activities. In addition to our usual ones, we attended a lecture on science and faith by a mathematics professor from Oxford and watched a basketball game with friends. On Friday night we went to a wine and cheese party with some friends – delicious! Kyle also has been working super hard on a software release for his research so he’s been putting in lots of hours on that. Using only one car has been going pretty well! I had to catch a ride from a friend once this week and we had a morning or two of getting-out-of-the-house tension but we’re managing.

Well Heeled Blog shared her thoughts on the financial impacts of having a child and her career and financial goals to achieve before she reproduces. The comments from actual parents add a lot of value as well.
The Dollar Disciple wrote a detailed post on the structure of his family’s budget. I love reading these sorts of posts to get a peek into other people’s lives! What we call “short-term targeted savings” he calls “future spending.” He and his wife are also preparing to live on one income, which is also very interesting/admirable!
Jason at Work Save Live wrote on Living a Step Behind “I used to have a problem and was slightly envious of their lives, but now I really take pride in knowing that I’m doing what’s right and what’s responsible for my family. I know that things will be different 20 years from now. I will be able to live the life that I want and everybody else in my generation is going to be praying that Social Security doesn’t collapse.”
