Friday Round-Up: Finance, Parenting and Mom Blogs

Friday Round-Up: Finance, Parenting and Mom Blogs

This week has been wonderful. My husband re-glazed our picture window, mowed the lawn, prepped the snow blower and made me dinner on Sunday. I don’t know what lit the fire under his butt, but I like…especially the cooking me dinner part.

Well there must have been something in the air; I felt the need to clean the house from top to bottom, including appliances, toilets and furniture (all my least favorite cleaning jobs). And this was all without any company scheduled to drop by.

Since I consider dust bunnies my best friends, I guess you could ask what possessed me to clean when no one was going to see the house anyway. Hmmm. I think I’ll blame my hubby’s marathon house winterizing for my sudden need to pretend I enjoyed domestic tasks.

After all this was done, I found time to seek out the best in personal finance on the net, and here’s what I found:
