Quick update this weekend since this past 1-1.5 weeks has been absolutely crazy with Luke. I don't want to go into too much detail here, but he ended up having both the best and worst day of his life so far but luckily he's still here and still fighting. That's all we can ask for. But I hope that we've turned a corner again with Luke and stability will return which will allow me to get in some more writing.
Due to all of the issues with Luke I got very little writing done. Actually none over the past week. But that doesn't mean that I haven't been looking for investment opportunities. My last purchase was when I added shares of Omega Healthcare Investor (OHI) and since then I've made two more purchases that I need to get write ups for. I've still got enough capital for another purchase and have a few companies in mind.
Also, be sure to sign up to receive posts via email and to follow me on Twitter@JC_PIP so you don't miss anything. I also started a Facebook page to give people another option for keeping up to date on posts and happenings with the blog.
Once again I'd like to say thanks to each and every one of you that read, commented, and shared posts from here this past week. I think this dividend growth investing and financial independence community is amazing and the openness from everyone is awesome. Thanks again!
