Weekly Roundup - March 21, 2015

Quick update this week.  I've been back at the hospital with my son since he had a "triple crown", tracheostomy, g-tube and circumcision.  So he's had a bit of a rough week since pretty much the whole front side of his body is sore and got poked and cut into.  He's still got a long road ahead of him but hopefully with a more stable airway he can start making a bit more progress.

I did make a few changes to the portfolio this week as well although I haven't gotten a chance to get the post written yet.  Hopefully this weekend or early next week I'll be able to put something together but for now I just don't have the time.

Also thanks to everyone that has answered my financial independence plans poll.  If you haven't yet done so please go to the post for the poll.  Thanks!

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