Thankfulness
Karl and Heather
It’s hard to believe that we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving this coming week. Heck, I just finished putting away Halloween decorations and throwing out rotting jack-o-lanterns this morning! It will no doubt be crazy with a short week of school, planning for turkey dinner and driving to spend time with family. So for this evening, we are exhaling and reflecting on the top 10 Project Money learnings for which we are thankful…

Wasps in Your Wallet?
Karl and Heather
We hate wasps! Every spring and summer we put up our best defenses against the flying menaces, but somehow they still find ways to nest inside of our garage, fence posts and window sills.

An Evening with Coraline
Karl and Heather
Saturday night we joined friends & neighbors for outdoor movie night in the park watching Coraline.  After the crazy Saturday we had, odds were 95% that one or more Duncan’s would be asleep within ten minutes of the opening credits (me being the ‘one’ in the equation). To my surprise, within moments of the start, I was hooked.

No More Horsing Around with Finances
Karl and Heather
Some of our earlier blogs compare our Project Money journey to a horse race: Shaky nerves at the start, Unsure of how we’d perform, The end seeming so far away we’d never get there. Today we are zipping down the long backstretch in a generally comfortable stride, but are aware that the final turn and finish line are much closer than they used to be.
