The US has had some crazy weather this fall and winter. The recent snow storm that hit the Northeast dumped two feet of snow and caused all kinds of mayhem.

While we don’t generally get the media attention that more populated areas receive, we know all too well how to deal with a winter storm. Actually when you think about it, winter storms are like getting out of debt in many ways. Tropical people bear with me as I show you how a winter blizzard can be used as an example of how to get out of debt. Continue reading
I am fortunate that my post about paying off $30,000 in credit card debt has been included in the FMF March Madness tournament of blog posts. However, I am competing against one of my favorite bloggers, Pauline at Reach Financial Independence, with her post about getting her Handyman into debt.
I could say vote for me because Pauline is too smart to get into credit card debt, gets to live in a tropical country, speaks about 40 languages, and has adventures with machetes and wild scorpions all day while March Madness is about the most exciting thing I’ve done all month, but that really makes me sound like a loser. Please, go read both posts and vote for your honest favorite. I am truly honored just be be competing. Best of luck, Pauline!

This week has been a really busy one. This was my one week a month where I work 4 whole days. I know you feel sorry for me, right? Honestly when you get used to working part time, it’s really different to work more. As a result, I wasn’t able to do as much reading as usual, but next week, I’ll only be at work two days, so hopefully I’ll catch up.
The foster puppies both went to great homes this week. That was a huge relief. They were super cute, but tons of work. I do miss them a slight bit, but I like the extra half hour of sleep I can get because I don’t have to get the puppies outside! Continue reading
