January 20, 2008 Link Payday

As mentioned in an earlier post, tomorrow’s my birthday. No, I didn’t go out and splurge on anything today (although I did eat out at Jack in the Box, using a gift card from one of my blogging buddies).

Finally, Lynnae over at BeingFrugal.net discusses a different kind of wealth: spiritual wealth. Given that I was able to attend service at my temple for the first time in three weeks this morning, I think I appreciated that more than I have previously.

    Thanks, Mrs. M and Lynnae.

    I think the lovely SF is taking me somewhere on Sunday (where I’m not sure) and I actually have a real party next month post Valentine’s Day.
