Hey everyone, I can’t believe it’s Friday already. This week has been a great week. It’s also been a very expensive week. For any of you who are new here I’m currently in the process of building a house and it’s been hectic to say the least. Anyone that says building a house is easy is totally lying to you.
One sign that this has been stressful for me is that I’ve gone from drinking a cup of coffee a day to about 5 cups of coffee a day. The house should be done in the next month or so and hopefully things will begin to go back to normal, I hope.
Anyways, let’s get this rolling.
First and foremost I want to thank those who have been supporting me this week with all of your social love, coments, and links. Without all of you none of this would be possible for me and you all deserve a special mention.

Blogger Spotlight – Out Of Your Rut
This week I’m trying something new. Instead of highlighting several bloggers for a roundup I decide to mention just one blogger who has inspired me the most throughout the week. So this week I chose a great article written by Out Of Your Rut titled Preparing For Semi Retirement.
What I like so much about this article is that Kevin makes the point that hitting full retirement is more of a mirage than a certainty these days and goes on to say that living a more semi retired lifestyle might become more of the norm for people.
I would have to agree with Kevin with the rising cost of health care, taxes, and not to mention the unforeseen future of social security most people will not be able to retire in the normal sense and may have to resort to semi retirement as an alternative. So if you get a chance check out his article.
