End of 2012 Favorite Blog Posts Comments34 Comments


So I did the whole year recap in yesterday’s post. If you haven’t been reading my blog for long, you might be surprised at how open I am. For some reason I can be kinda quiet in person, but on a blog I don’t mind sharing personal stuff. Go figure.

Anyways, by the time you’re all reading this I’ll be off at my mom’s house visiting family and kicking back. She and her husband had an awesome retirement house built in the interior of BC. Actually they did a lot of work themselves, but it turned out to be a really nice house. That’s not to take away from their carpentry skills. My mom did a lot of renovations on the last home she owned. She also did some carpentry work when she was young. Her husband is pretty handy too…in case they’re reading this 😉

I’ll be there for almost a week. It will be nice to take a break and not have any responsibilities for a little while. No work. No blog. No affiliate websites. No cats. No meals to cook. No groceries to buy. No apartment to clean. The thought even makes me feel more relaxed.

Of course I won’t be completely lazy. I’ll try to help out where I can with cleaning or cooking. Regardless, the change of pace will be enjoyable. I sure can’t complain about some good home cooked meals and time with family.

I’m really interested to see the progress on their house too. The last time I was there they were finishing up the deck and window trim, but that was in the summer. I suspect they’ve made a lot of progress since then. Well maybe not a ton of progress since they recently got a pool table for the rec room. So that might’ve been a bit of a distraction. I know it will be for me while I’m there.

Anyways, enough rambling. Have a good holiday season everyone. Enjoy your time with loved ones and take some time to reflect upon how lucky you are. If I don’t post again before the new year, Happy New Years too!

    No turkey this year, it is still alive in the garden and too big for two people, we may eat lamb instead. Thank you for the mention, enjoy your mum and the lazy week!

    1. Jeremy

      Lol, you have your own turkey? My dad had turkeys for a while when I was young. Damn ugly birds but quite tasty. I can’t say I’m a big fan of lamb.

  2. Grayson @ Debt Roundup

    Thanks for the mention Jeremy. I hope you have a good week and enjoy Christmas. I am usually very excited about Christmas, but can’t concentrate due to the baby. I am not sure how our holiday will be because we have no idea when we will be in the hospital. See you in 2013!

    1. Jeremy

      That would make things a bit hectic when you just don’t know when you’ll have to drop everything and rush to the hospital. I’m sure in the end it’ll be your most memorable holidays ever. Happy holidays Grayson.

  3. Jason @ WorkSaveLive

    We got back from St. Louis last night. It was a lot of fun (other than the usual family drama) and I scored a decent amount of cash!

    I hope you enjoy the week off Jeremy. I’m sure it’s much-deserved and it’ll be nice to recharge the batteries and have nothing to do!

    1. Jeremy

      Congrats on scoring some nice Christmas cash Jason. Enjoy your time off too if you do take some time off. I know that can be a conflict of interest when working for yourself.

    1. Jeremy

      Oh shit, knew I forgot something. Kidding. Actually Kevin is taking care of them this time around. He lives close enough that hopefully it isn’t to much hassle for him. Enjoy the holiday season you two. And thanks again for the hookup.

  4. John

    Jeremy, I’m also more on the quiet sound in group settings. For blogging I just try to remember that age old advice of only sharing what would make my mom proud. haha!

    1. Jeremy

      haha that’s a good approach. I guess I avoid mentioning anything that my mom might give me shit about lol. Well that is unless it’s something she kinda knows about already.

    Have to get myself one of those vacation homes too some day :0) Few of my old friends from highschool are back in town and we’re getting together this weekend. It IS nice to get away from work for awhile. Thanks for the mention and happy holidays 😀

    1. Jeremy

      I’m sure you’ll be able to afford on someday with the pace that you’re putting money into investments. I hope the holidays went well. Thanks again for the help while I was away.

    First of all, Happy holidays and lovely New Year 2013 to you and to your family. I celebrated this Christmas Eve in my home along with my friends by tasting turkey, lambs and cakes. For New Year we have planned to celebrate the fresh year in Las Vegas city with my family members.

    1. Jeremy

      Sweet…..New Year in Vegas has got to be a pretty awesome experience. I’m a little jealous. Your Christmas sounds like it was pretty enjoyable, based on the food anyway 😉 Happy holidays and new year.

    1. Jeremy

      I am really enjoying the time off. I’m back from my out of town trip, but I still have several days to kick back. Well I say kick back, but I’ve actually got a ton of stuff to take care of before going back to work. So I’ll be keeping pretty busy. I hope you’re doing well Veronica.
