Summer Team Links–I Am Too Busy Edition
Oh my, I can’t believe how busy I have been recently. We have new puppies in the house and am trying to prepare for my eldest to head back to college. I had to work late everyday this week and how’s this for a crazy Saturday:
I got a call from a friend at 9 am to sub in for a game at their one pitch softball tournament starting at 10. Played softball and got home about 10:50, took a quick shower (cause I was full of dirt) and left the house at 11:10 to go work out with Vee at 11:40. Got home at 12:50, ate lunch, am writing this for the next 20 minutes, then I have a 2:00 tee time, cook-out at 5, and going from there to listen to a colleague playing in a band at 10 pm. Fun day, but busy.
Anyway, you aren’t going to learn anything from me today, so let’s go straight to the links (BTW we won softball 10-6).

So Over Debt: Andrea recently changed jobs and was shocked by her first paycheck.
Fat Guy, Skinny Wallet: Fat Guy writes on a hurricane preparedness guide. Good information for any natural or man made disaster.
The Penny Hoarder: I know that I will be losing money, but I still want to try to make some money in the fantasy football league I will be joining this year. Maybe I should be the commish, eh?

Enjoy the links. I didn’t get this finished before the cook-out so I am writing at 11pm. It has been a long day. Good night.
I hope I am not too sore tomorrow to get started on another post.
