Weekly Roundup - October 31, 2015

Another week down and after today another month will be done with.  Of course that means today is Halloween.  Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  Down here in Texas the weather is finally starting to get better and there's no shortage of haunted houses.  It's always fun to go to the haunted houses for a little bit of scary fun.  While those are sometimes scary, there's nothing scary about receiving six dividend raises throughout the month.

We finally started doing things again and I was so thankful to have to work.  A week and a half of being away from the house and actually going backwards instead of making progress is way too long.  We're moving slow right now but at least we're moving in the right direction which is more than I can say for last week.  I'm slowly building up my workout regimen and it sure is nice being just a few miles from the gym.  Even better is that since I'm working nights that means I get to go to the gym during the day when there's a whole lot fewer people.  So there's no waiting for people to quit using what I need.  I get in, work out, and leave usually within 30-40 minutes which is great.  Just the little bit of exercising I've done has already made a tremendous difference in the way my body feels.  Focus on your health people!

In case you missed them, here's the posts from the last two weeks.
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!
