The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: And Now The Wife’s Family Edition

After almost a week with my family visiting and their exit on Sunday, my wife’s family came to visit starting yesterday. I look forward to rest in the future… but my wife is due with our second child in less than a month. Whew!

Stop Being Poor! What Low Income Earners Can Do To Get Off Minimum Wage I had an article very much like this that I was saving to post when my wife goes into labor. Instead, just enjoy this one now and maybe pretend I wrote it. I do agree with the advice. (@ the digerati life)

    I know I said it over there, but I didn’t understand the MLND post. It boggles my mind that anyone would sit down at a restaurant without asking the host/ess to check the menu first. Even if it’s going on expenses – apart from price levels, don’t you want to see what sort of food they serve?

    (PS don’t visit Ireland if you don’t like paying for water!)

  2. Trent,
    I’m excited for you and your wife. I can’t wait to see some pics of the baby…. you *are* going to post them aren’t you? :) Glad you were able to include me in this roundup! -SVB

    OH! That breaks my heart that the article about being involved in your local community didn’t get much attention!

    I am VERY INTERESTED in community involvement – and the benefits of social capital. I’ll read the article and will post comments soon. I am very excited to see what you had to say!
