The weather down here in south Louisiana has actually been getting a bit warm and humid lately, but the last two days have been cool, breezy, and beautiful. I spent most of today outside cleaning up the yard and garage and playing with the kids. I know it won’t be too much longer before it is downright hot!
I participated in 3 carnivals this past week : David at Moneyning hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance #147- Q1 Financial Advice Edition and included my April Fool’s Post “The Top Ten Ways To Aggravate Your Spouse or Significant Other with Your Frugality”. This post was also highlighted on the MSN Smart Spending Blog on Thursday. I am not sure if MSN realized it was an “April Fool’s “post”, i.e., a joke….Oh well!
My favorite posts from the Carnival:
