Parents visited tonight, which was great. I love living with Micah, but sometimes I miss being around them–especially my little mommy who’s always coming up in search of hugs.
That also means the apartment is clean again, mostly because I married the best guy ever. I was at both jobs today and when I got home I thought I’d have to clean. But no, it was all done and I was so happy. Micah gets 20 points. I’m also exhausted. Can you tell?
Jeremy at Gen X Finance wrote a couple days back (but I just read now) about something truly horrifying: the 401(k) debit card. I guess now that people are borrowing less against their houses, they have to find some way to satisfy their desires and put off saving responsibly for the future. After all, there are 401(k) loans you can get in cases of real hardship. Or for real real hardship you can get it out…maybe with a lower penalty. But a debit card is just asking for trouble.
On a completely different note, I got a “Nigerian” scam e-mail this weekend for the first time in a few years…normally they get filtered. Bonus cool points for this one: 1) It was entirely in French (which I speak, so no biggie) 2) the scam was actually to send money to a woman in Ivory Coast for her tuition–her brother would send me a money order, but he’s an illegal immigrant (in France…this assumed I was there) which is why he can’t wire her the money…I’m not sure why that matters, but there you have it.
Oh, and 5 minutes for mom is giving away a non-iPod MP3 player. Provided by Best Buy. Consumerist readers may have something to say about that idea…but anyway…if you’re someone like me who will probably never buy an iPod/MP3 player unless it’s much less expensive but are interested enough to look into contests, this might be for you. Ok, enough rambling.
Thought for the evening: Should there be laws about blogging under the influence of little sleep?
