Goodbye August – Hello September!

Personal Highlights for August:

  • I turned 35 years old on the 24th.  This was probably the worst birthday of my life- I was home sick, didn’t do anything, and in bed with NyQuil by 9 PM.
  • We accepted an offer on the cabin – only to find out the financing fell through, so back to square one 😦
  • Due to a 2 week cold, didn’t get much new content up on the website, but still had 3rd highest traffic ever!
  • English Premier league soccer has started up again, so my Saturday/Sunday Mornings are booked up again.  Also got my Jets season tickets in the mail…I can’t believe hockey season is almost here already.
  • Took the kids to my favorite sports bar/diner for the first time:

  • The mall near our house was allowing kids to come and paint a tile, which will be hung up and displayed as part of a new mosaic wall in the mall, so we took the kids to each paint a tile, and of course had to stop at the food court after and get donuts:)

  • Continued bi weekly payments into RRSPs & Spousal RSP.
  • Pretty slow month as far as dividends go – BUT the spousal RRSP that I set up in June last year for Amber cracked $10,000!
