This week was a big week for me, I finally got my cast off from where from where I broke my wrist 8 weeks ago. My wrist is still pretty sore and stiff, but getting better each day. Hoping that by the end of next week I should have about 90% of my motion back. Just feels GREAT to no have that heavy, smelly, itchy cast on.


I participated in 5 carnivals this week, including a new one from Cash Money Life. Thanks to all of the hosts. I know from talking with others that host these how much work it is and really appreciate their efforts! Here they are:


I also participated in a few give aways this week but didn’t win. Million Dollar Journey is having a giveaway to celebrate MDJ’s First Birthday! So make sure you head over and enter…oh wait, don’t do that it will decrease my chances of winning. Just continue reading instead…

    Larry, thanks for the mention. I hope that your wrist is fully healed — 8 itchy weeks of wearing a cast must have been a trial!

    @Patrick – Thanks, just getting the cast off has made life much better. Few more weeks and I should be back to normal, or at least as normal as I get.

  9. AcidDrip Says:

    Are your Christian Wealth principles similar to Muslim Money principles I wonder?

  10. Steve Says:

    Thanks for the mention – and glad you got the cast off, I hate those things!

    AcidDrip – Honestly I don’t know enough about the Muslim religion to be able to provide you any insight. I know a little of their beliefs and values, but not any detail nor specifically about their financial teachings or beliefs. I do have some Muslim friends at work however and I think that would be a good learning opportunity for me and maybe even then. Thanks for the question, I’ll keep you posted.

    Steve, as always you are most welcome.
