Weekly Roundup - September 14, 2013

This past week has been really busy.  We signed all of the papers on Monday but unbeknownst to us, the sellers weren't going to be at the title company until later that afternoon so we didn't get the keys until later that evening.  It's exciting to be able to start moving into our new house although the big move won't be for another week.  Unfortunately for my wife I won't be home for the big move due to work so she'll be flying solo on that but some friends should be there to help out as she has recently helped 2 of her friends move.  Now it's time for payback!  Earlier this week I also discussed why we opted for a 30 year mortgage rather than a 15 year.

I'll be heading back to work sometime this weekend so I should finally be able to get a few more posts up.  I've gotten a request to do a stock analysis on Stryker and should hopefully be able to get that out sometime in the middle of the week.  As always if there's any company you'd like a stock analysis on, feel free to ask.

Thanks to everyone that mentioned and stopped by Passive-Income-Pursuit this past week.  I truly appreciate it as it helps to motivate and inspire me to continue doing what I'm doing.  I hope everyone had a great week and has a wonderful weekend.  Let's get on to the links!

  1. Thanks for including one of my posts in your roundup! I hope the move goes smooth and that you have lots of help!


    1. DT,

      No problem.

      The move has gone pretty smooth so far. My wife and I were able to get most of the smaller things moved and almost everything else is packed into boxes. We'll do the big move of furniture this weekend and then will be completely moved in to the new house.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Thanks for the blog love. Just posted my dividend income update for August. I need to keep pace with you!


    1. Mark,

      I think I'm a little bit behind you as far as dividend income is concerned. But it'd be nice to have you beat on one month. Keep up the great work!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Thanks for including me in your weekly review! Hope all is well with you!
