Can’t Take My Eyes Off These Blogs #21- It’s Cold!

Cold and IceI realize it’s winter and all, but it’s freakin’ cold here this week. My husband runs the ski club at the school where he teaches because he likes to, and he get three free lift tickets for herding the cats to and from the ski area. It was -12 degrees this morning on his way up. No, thanks. I’m a fair weather winter sports person!

It’s been an exciting weekend here at the Eyes on the Dollar house. We had a visit from the tooth fairy last night. She should get extra props for making it out in the frigid weather. I’m learning that you should keep some singles around if you have a kid of tooth losing age. Cold weather makes it seem OK to sit around and watch football. The Broncos are playing as I’m finalizing this list, so if there are typos, please understand.

If you like free money, don’t forget to enter the giveaway for $1000 cash, and there will be another $100 giveaway coming up this week.

I was lucky enough to have Tony from You Only Do This Once deliver a great guest post this week that goes right along with the Debt Movement.

I also was together enough to make it into two carnivals.
