I believe this is the first weekend in about 2 months where I get both days to be at home and do nothing. Unfortunately, Stacie worked on Saturday, but that means I got to sleep until 9am, which is abnormal for a weekend. And unfortunately for me, my term paper is due Wednesday and I haven’t really worked on it yet (I only got 3 paragraphs done of a 5-8 page paper today). On Wednesday, I’ll also receive the take-home final that is due the following week.
And then classes start back up again in early September. Only 4 more semesters to go. Ugh.

Best of My Personal Finance Reader List
Last week, I was lazy and didn’t link out to anyone else. But this week, I made sure I starred the articles I really enjoyed in Google Reader. It was a short list this week, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like articles from other sites:
