Spring is finally here! I’m so happy because we had such a wet and cold winter this year. The weather is warming up and we can do more activities outdoors. Last week was spring break for us and we had a great staycation. I took it easy and spent almost all my time being a […] Read More

{ 82 comments } Blog Income Wrap Up – 2016 thumbnail

Alright, I am almost done with our 2016 taxes! I just need to double check everything and it’ll be ready to go. Good thing our taxes were relatively simple last year.

That’s okay, though. Christmas is Mrs. RB40’s favorite holiday and she doesn’t mind doing all the work to make it an […] Read More

Did you have fun on Halloween? This year we did not do anything. Mrs. RB40 was stressed out at work and RB40Jr did not want to dress up. He never liked Halloween and he loathes Trick or Treating. I guess he was a bit scared of the strange costumes when he was smaller and it […] Read More
