We are in Canada! Hamilton, ON, to be precise. We are attending a friend’s wedding basically all day today and tomorrow we are visiting Niagara Falls!
This past week was full of work and unpacking. We had a major disappointment, though. Because of this wedding we’re attending, we weren’t able to participate in our university’s process for qualifying to buy season tickets to the men’s basketball games, and our exemption request was denied. Attending the home games has been a major portion of our social life and entertainment for the past five years so we are very disappointed to not be able to do that this year. We’ll still watch the games on TV with our friends, but it’s just not the same as being there in person. A very, very small upside is that the $200 we had earmarked for the tickets can now be used for another purpose. Kyle actually suggested getting cable so we don’t have to jump through so many hoops to watch the games, but adding that service would quickly eat up that money.

William from Drop Dead Money shows us at Christian PF that the past shouldn’t matter when making investment decisions – and why that’s so difficult emotionally.
Tie the Money Knot included Are You a Tightwad, a Spendthrift, or Unconflicted in his favorites from the PF blogosphere.
My Money Design answered my question of whether tightwads/spendthrifts can really change by drawing an analogy: “Just like losing weight or exercise, if you see the benefits of the discipline and hard work, and focus on the end goal even after you’ve reached a place where you’ve mostly won, you’ll want to stay there and continue those good habits.”
