Home Work, The FLE, Settlers, and Financial Counseling

This weekend was INCREDIBLE!

I'm off on Fridays, and I woke up ready to work on the yard.  This is unusual.  We are employing the "scorched earth" technique to our yard since the landscaping is over thirty years old and has overgrown everything and is eating the house.

So, my truck got to be a truck this weekend.  I hooked up the overgrown azaleas with a chain to the back of my truck and stepped on the gas.  It was AWESOME!  I chopped down some huge holly bushes.  I also put siding up on the house.


Then, on Saturday I got to teach the Financial Learning Experience at Rexam, a global business that is a world leader in the consumer packaging business.  It was AWESOME!  The folks that attended were so kind and in to it!  Lives were changed.

I raced home and watched the shuttle launch (I am still an engineer, folks!).  Then the family played Settlers of Catan.  I won one and lost one.  Not too bad! 

On Sunday, ALL three of the financial counseling appointments showed up, AND the appointments for the awesome NewSpring volunteer financial counselors also showed up!  The appointments were incredible!  In fact, one of the financial counseling appointments was done over the internet and a phone connection.  It is amazing what Google Docs allows one to accomplish!

Did I say lately that I can't believe I get to do this for a living?
