Personal Finance Week in Review for December 1

by Sean Bryant on December 1, 2012

It’s December 1 and it’s going to be 60 degrees or above for for the next week here in Denver. Something is not right about that. I like to have snow on the ground when I go pick out a Christmas tree. The mountains have been making a ton of snow so I think I am going to head up for a day of snowboarding this week.

Our daughter will be one month old on Monday and everything is going awesome. We had a rough 36 hours earlier this week as she was having a small growth spurt where she wanted to eat just about every hour. I felt bad for my wife because she literally got no sleep for a day and a half.

How did everyone else’s week go?

Here are some of the personal finance articles I enjoyed this week.

    Thanks for the mention Sean. We’re getting that same crazy weather as well. Hope your wife is getting some more sleep, I know my wife can relate as ours is teething right now & up a lot.

    Thank you for the inclusion, Lance. It is much appreciated. The only thing your wife can do is sleep when babes does. Unfortunately my Wee One is over a year and there still are days I feel like a zombie. (She was up until nearly 5 a.m. this morning with teething pain!) Deep breath..this too shall pass…

    Wow Mark, she’s got one full head of hair on her, that’s great. I’m happy that you are both happy and from what I hear sleep is precious when you have a child, get it while you can. Cheers mate and congrats again! Mr.CBB

    I agree with Mr. CBB; that’s a ton of hair! It’s great that everyone is doing well, and one of these days you and your wife will get sleep again. Thanks for the mention.

    A month already, it goes so fast. Sleep will return, but it is very hard at first. We are in terrible need of snow as well. It’s too warm! Thanks for the mention.
