I hope you had a nice weekend.  Considering we didn’t leave town, I had one of the busiest weekends in recent memory.  Saturday was hobby day as I played basketball, watched my older daughter at ballet, took both daughters to their respective swimming lessons, observed (and perhaps helped a little) as about a dozen princesses descended upon my home for a craft-oriented “three-year-old girls and their mommies only” (plus one Dad (that would be me)) for a Valentine’s Day Party. Then, my wife and I went out to dinner. That was just Saturday.

Sunday was nearly as busy, with a Mardis Gras parade at the Children’s Museum.

You: What?

Yeah it kind of surprised me too, being mid-winter in New Hampshire and all, but so be it.  It was cute.

You:  What was the best part of the weekend?

Hard to pick just one, but perhaps the most unusual part was not getting on the work computer from Friday night until Monday morning.   That was a pretty good achievement for me.

To that end, I just read this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance, which featured my post Could you get by on half a million a year?,

And now, I want to ask you, with all that’s going on in the world right now, what would you like to read and comment about?  Let me know.

Here are some ideas to get you started, but feel free to comment “None of the above, or Other”

  • My thoughts on the economic stimulus that passed last week and is likely to be signed by President Obama imminently
  • A recap of an investment presentation by a high-end (and crazy-smart) firm I attended
  • Common tax prep mistakes I see people make and how to avoid them
  • A review of an important financial planning concept (like an IRA or a mutual fund)
  • Other: Do tell!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
