Defining Contentment’s Role in Our Lives & Finances

Hello, hello!  Recently, I (Kim) had an epic fail moment à la tripping over nothing on concrete.  Three x-rays, two confused dogs, & one torn ligament later, and I’m home with a new pile of medical bills to take care of. (I’m fine, BTW).  But much like the penguin in the gif above, I can’t…
