I'm sitting here pretending to work

I've been away from work for 2 weeks. Unfortunately, it was because of a death in the family and not for anything fun. Today is my first day back at work and I haven't done any work all day. For the next day and a half, I'll just be here getting used to being back at work, answering coworkers questions about why I was off, and taking care of personal stuff that needs to get done.

Maybe by Wednesday I'll be ready to start actually working and stop wasting time. If not, then I'm totally fine with waiting until Thursday. With deadlines looming early next week, I can't afford to wait much longer than that.

Gold just keeps rising

The value and price of gold just keeps rising. Even though the pundits keep saying that gold is a bubble and that you can't rely on it to increase, the value is up a hundred fold in the past couple of years. It's a crazy good time to buy gold coins for investment purposes. US Gold Bureau will send the coins to you or they can arrange to have your coins held in a private storage facility. If you're going to just buy a coin or two, you can probably keep them at home. But if you're buying a lot of coins, it's probably best to have someone else keep them safe for you.

Since it's Christmas, you can even ask for gold for your present. Or you can ask for cash or gift cards to buy gold for yourself. Either way, it's a great item to invest in.
