We just got back last night from our Thanksgiving holiday visit, so I haven’t been up to my normal amount of reading, commenting, and sharing. That whole 12+ hours in the car over 3 days kind of puts a kink in the computer work. I was, however, quite shocked to read the Larry Hagman, a.k.a J.R. Ewing on the TV show Dallas passed away yesterday. For anyone who grew up in the 80’s with a Southern Mama, you probably watched Dallas on Friday night. I always thought J.R. was too mean to die, but I guess when your time is up….
This week I was lucky enough to blog swap with Frugal Rules. If you surround youself with smart people or blogs in this case, maybe some of it rubs off by osmosis? Anyway, you can read my post about Being an Advocate for Your Own Health Care and John’s post about Budgeting with an Irregular Income. Pauline linked my guest post on her Friday recap. Mr. CBB liked them so much he included both, plus my leftover turkey recipe on his weekly blog post picks. Thanks so much!
There was so much link love this week, I feel like the Grinch when his heart grew three sizes. Love all you guys.
