This weekend seemed to have one problem after another. It’s put me in a rather sour mood. As such the first few articles of the week (and maybe more) are probably about 700% more “ranty” than usual. I just feel like I should get that out there to be fair. Hopefully things will get better as I take the evening off and go enjoy Chevy’s $2 table-side guacamole, a cocktail, and the American Idol concert.

Regarding the home not being an investment, one thing missing from the math is the alternative. If you don’t buy a house, you have to rent something (unless you can stay somewhere for free).
In reality, you should compare the cost or renting vs. buying.
Thanks for the link and I think after a few drinks you’ll be feeling better. Just don’t be an angry drunk.

Sorry your weekend didn’t go well. Stand up, stretch your arms to the sky and take a deep breath. Slowly let it out. Feel the tension release from your body and open your eyes to a new week :)
Yea I know kinda new age but it does work wonders. You can restart your day any time you want.
Thanks for linking to my post on My Dollar Plan!
