Weekly Roundup - September 6, 2014

This past week was trying to say the least.  Nothing much to report on the financial/investing front but lots of things changed with Lucas, our son set to join us in late December.  We haven't updated the site yet for this week but hopefully we'll get the chance to do so this weekend.  Ever since finding out that my wife was pregnant I've felt my priorities shift a bit and even more so after finding out there were complications that our little boy will face.  I don't expect anything to change too drastically in the next 6 months to a year, but after that there might be a job change on the horizon.

This weekend should be a pretty fun one.  Today our plan is to go meet up with some friends that have a lake house a few hours from here and spend the day out on the lake, bbq-ing, and having a good time with some friends.  Sunday is looking like we'll head back home kind of early but that's just so we can get back to civilization and watch some long-awaited NFL games.  It's the first full weekend of games and I'm quite excited.  Football is by far my favorite sport to watch on tv and even better when you can watch the games with friends.  And that's exactly our plan.  My wife and I are both looking forward to a relaxing weekend to kind of clear our heads from the whirlwind that the last month has been.  Unfortunately it's looking like Monday will bring another drive back to work but honestly I'm looking forward to that as well to get back into a normal routine.  Anyone else have some really kickass plans for this weekend?

In case you missed them, here's the posts from this past week.

Thanks again to all of you that stopped by, commented on, and shared posts from Passive-Income-Pursuit this past week.  I appreciate it so much and can't really begin to thank you all.  Another quick recap this weekend but next weekend should get back to the normal summaries following the links.
