Back From Turkey Day

My family and I just returned from a brief Thanksgiving vacation. I am typing this blog post on my NEW Toshiba Laptop. I got a GREAT deal, so I decided to treat myself to a pre-Christmas gift. One of my favorite deal sites is Deal News.Com. The other day, as I was searching through for a good deal on a laptop computer, I found a good deal on a 14.1″ Toshiba Laptop with an 80 GB hard drive for less than $400. I’ve REALLY been wanting a laptop, so I bit the bullet, and ordered it. I’m glad that I did. I’ve set up a wi-fi network for my home, and I am outside, watching the kids play, typing away on my new laptop. (I’m amazed that you can get a nice laptop for less than 400 bucks. Seriously, 4 years ago, a decent desktop computer cost at least 1000 dollars.)

We had a good thanksgiving, visiting my wife’s family. (There is a really cool place in Georgia to go and see Christmas lights. Callaway Garden’s has this awesome, 5 mile stretch of Christmas Lights. We took out kids and they totally loved the lights, the music, and the fun.)

I’ll have our very first “charity spotlight” post up Monday afternoon. I have to take my little boy to the doctor Monday morning, for a re-check of his ears. He has had an ear infection, so we need to find out if his ears have cleared up or not. I’ll also have a cool series of posts about my visit to Atlanta for the Dave Ramsey Total Money Makeover Live Event. A quick preview? Two words: Totally Rocked!!!

Dave Ramsey Total Money Makeover Live: The Ticket Arrives!!!

I’m going to the Dave Ramsey Total Money Makeover Live Event this Saturday in Atlanta, GA. If you’ve ever wondered (like I have) what a Dave Ramsey T.M.M.L. ticket looks like, your days of wondering are now over. Check it out:

The ticket is for the VIP section of the event. I suppose that I have wear the little gold sticker. I will feel privileged.

I think I will head to Atlanta Saturday morning, eat an early lunch, and then head over to the church where the event is being held. I’ll probably find a decent hotel, spend the night, and find a church to attend Sunday morning, and then head home. I’ll post pictures of the event.
