Weekly Roundup - May 18, 2013

Unfortunately I had to head back to work last Friday so I didn't get the weekend at home, but around 2.5 weeks was still nice to have so I can't really complain.  It was a long drive to get back out to work and it was even worse because it was storming on the drive.  Such is the life of working in the oil field.  I've made up for that time though since then since we pretty much haven't done anything for 5 days or so, but I've still been getting paid.  The only bad thing was that I was stuck on the rig instead of getting to be at home with my wife.  It's times like these that really push me to remain focused on reaching FI at a really young age.

Thanks to everyone that mentioned Passive Income Pursuit this past week.  I truly appreciate it.
