This month seems to be hurtling us right at Christmas with no foreseeable end in sight. Thankfully the potty training bootcamp is going quite well and we’re seeing some great progress with it. I am looking forward to the day that we won’t be spending a boatload of money each month on diapers and use that money on other things. I am looking forward to tomorrow as my wife and I will be having a date day as some good friends are taking the little munchkins for the day. I think we’re going to be seeing the Hobbit as my wife is a huge Tolkien fan. I am not a big Tolkien fan, but the movie does look pretty interesting.

If you’ve not taken the time to sign up for the iPad 3 giveaway then I encourage you to do so as you still have time. Talk of the giveaway has increased requests from my better half that we should get an iPad. I am determined to stand strong, but we learned yesterday that with our business it would be tax deductible so I think I may be on the losing end of this arrangement.

Speaking of our business…a number of you have asked what type of business we run. Well, wait no further as I will be sharing that in detail starting on Monday. It’ll be part of an overall series on things to do when you run your own business that I’ll be sharing over the next few weeks and months. Oh, I’ll also be co-hosting another giveaway on Monday. It’s not quite as good as the iPad 3 giveaway, but free cash is always a good deal.

It’s been another great week in the blogosphere and I’ve highlighted some of my favorite blog posts. If you have some time this weekend, then I encourage you to read some of the selected blog posts. Have a great weekend everyone!
