If you’re visiting from Make Money Your Way, thanks for stopping by!
My brother was in from out of town this week, so I didn’t get too much blogging done! We haven’t seen him since Christmas, so it was really nice to catch up and have some family time. We had to drive him back to the airport eventually, but we’re hoping he’ll be back for Christmas again.
Do you remember my foster dog, Promise? She is now named Molly, and will be staying with us forever. We just couldn’t adopt her out to anyone else! Maybe it was the sweet, expression-filled eyes; maybe it was how she curls up on my lap and just lies there snuggled up; or maybe it was because her story tugged on our heartstrings. Either way, we’re all really happy to have added her to our family. The only thing I need to put a stop to: when she gets excited to see me, she sometimes charges and headbutts me in the leg! It’s cute when she’s under 40 pounds, but she is gaining weight very quickly and when she’s full grown she would definitely take me out.
Since this week school is starting again, among various other commitments I’m making, I’m going to be changing my posting schedule (did you even know I had one?!). Instead of trying to post Monday/Wednesday/Friday, as I have been, I’m switching to Tuesday/Thursday, with my wrap-up still on Sundays.
I’m also participating in a Link Party which will take place on Saturdays. That’s still in the works, but I am very excited to see it take off!
Switching the posting schedule should also give me more time to read other blogs, which I love doing. This week has been hard, since all my free time was spent with my brother, but I hope to get back to reading everyone soon!
On Wednesday I was over at Make Money Your Way with my post Are You Too Busy to Make Money? Thanks for having me, Pauline!
On Thursday, I shared some job hunting tips.

Making Sense of Cents posed a reader question on Friday: What percentage of your income goes to housing?. I was surprised by my result, are you?
Femme Frugality had a guest post on a terrifying subject: child identity theft. Luckily, there are ways to prevent it, identify when it’s happening, and prevent future damage. Check out the post for more information.
Thanks for the mention, Alexa!
Have a great rest of your weekend!
