Personal Finance Week in Review for January 13, 2013 + $1,000 Giveaway

by Sean Bryant on January 13, 2013

ColetteWell this was sure the interested week for the little one.  Colette had her two month physical which meant she got all of her vaccinations.  To put it nicely the rest of the week has been pretty stressful for my wife and I.  There has been a lot of crying for the baby and very little sleep for me.  Yesterday my wife got away for a friends birthday so I took the day to go snowboarding.  Now that is what I call teamwork.

This upcoming week is going to be the first week that we wont either be at families house or have family here in Denver since before the holidays.  That means I am going to finally be able to get back to a normal work schedule.  I have a never ending to-do list that I need to begin to tackle.

To make this weeks review even better I am going to add a giveaway.  I have joined several other bloggers and will be giving one lucky reader $1,000.  This giveaway is being brought to you by, America’s #1 structured settlement and annuity marketplace.

    Glad you’re a part of the $1K giveaway as well!! And thanks for the reshare! It was nice to have the How to Ink article included amongst all your other picks :)

  • Glen @ Monster Piggy Bank

    I have less than 3 days until I get to finally meet my little one as that is when he is being induced. I’m not excited about all the vaccinations, but I know they will protect him from all the nasties out there.

    • Sean @ One Smart Dollar

      An early congrats. I had a friend who put it a good way. Better a little fuss now than measles later.

  • Lance@MoneyLife&More

    Thanks for mentioning Jason’s guest post at my site this week!

  • John S @ Frugal Rules

    Thanks for the mention as always Sean! Having the little ones getting shots is never really a fun experience. Hope you’re able to get back to more normalcy this week.

  • Jason @ WorkSaveLive

    Wow, I can’t believe you’ve already been a dad for two months; time sure does fly! I bet it’ll be nice to not have anybody at the house and have a semi-normal schedule again. I know it’s nice to have friends/family over but I really like when nobody is visiting and we have a weekend to ourselves.

    • Sean @ One Smart Dollar

      These first two months have REALLY gone by fast. Scary and sad.

  • Grayson @ Debt Roundup

    Thanks for the mention Sean. I am not looking forward to the shots next month. I am still struggling with the lack of sleep. Good luck to you getting it back to “normal”

    • Sean @ One Smart Dollar

      I have heard people say that their kids did just fine and some that said it was horrible. I think part of our problem was having family in town and that caused her to be way over stimulated.

  • Sean @ One Smart Dollar

    Anytime :-)

  • Street Smart Finance

    She is so cute! Thanks for the mention, my friend!

    • Sean @ One Smart Dollar

      You’re welcome and thanks a lot
