Personal Finance Week in Review for February 17, 2013

by Sean Bryant on February 17, 2013

Top personal finance blogI hope most of you had a better week than I did because it seemed like everyday was an uphill battle. My wife and I had some friends in town last weekend from Chicago so we got a condo up in the mountains for a couple of nights. The first night we got up there I ended up getting sick and that ended up being a real bummer for the “relaxing weekend” that it was suppose to be.

We got back to Denver on Tuesday and just when I was starting to feel better I got knocked back down with a terrible head cold. It has been a struggle all week to get work done.

Needless to say I hope everyone else had a much better week than I did.  On a brighter topic you will want to make sure you vote for the top personal finance blog of 2012.
