It's amazing to me how things work out with my crazy work schedule, or lack thereof. I was able to be home for Christmas and also got to do the bigger family Christmas/birthday celebrations on the 26th. This year we had decided to do something a little bit different with Christmas. What we had been doing was just draw a person's name so you're only buying for one of the adults. This year we still did that, but then we also had a second "White Elephant" exchange with a gift that you made. I thought it turned out great and I think a lot of the gifts that were made turned out even better than the normal store bought gifts. We'll be doing this again next year and I'm already looking forward to getting started on some projects.
As expected Christmas was a busy time of the year and doubly so since I was actually home for it. So it was quite light on the blogging front, but fear not, I'll be back to my fairly regular posting schedule starting this coming week. Although I did get an updated stock analysis on 3M out on Monday after their monster 35% dividend increase was announced.
I'd like to say thanks to everyone that has commented, stopped by, or shared any posts from Passive-Income-Pursuit. I appreciate all of your support and you all continue to inspire, motivate, and teach me.
