  • This week in CFO history: My best financial move, our first trip to Urgent Care & the Annual Life Review

    One year ago, I shared my best financial move of the year, which has continued to pay off this year as well. It’s also been exactly one year since our first trip to Urgent Care – unfortunately, we’ve been back several times since. But fortunately, the reasons for our visits have been relatively minor and the care we’ve received has been excellent.

    Two years ago, I recommended an Annual Life Review, following the steps outlined in life coach Cheryl Richardson’s weekly newsletter.

    Three years ago, during my first year as a mother and blogger, I was so overwhelmed during the holidays that I ended up taking a hiatus. Things are just as crazy this year, but I’m not going anywhere this time 🙂

    This Week in CFO History: Saving the environment, more on breastfeeding, financial responsibility, and pasta puttanesca

    Last year, I listed ten small ways to save the environment.

    I’ve got nothing from two years ago – I was still a miserably sick preggo and not spending much time in front of the computer at all.

    And three years ago, I was having a blast with my brand new blog. I wrote a bunch of posts about breastfeeding – Breastfeeding Problems – Supply Part I, Breastfeeding Problems – Supply Part II, Other Breastfeeding Problems, and Thoughts About Breastfeeding Pillows. I also discussed how being financially responsible is one key to happiness, and shared my recipe for pasta puttanesca.
