Half way to 2008

May 22nd, 2007 at 06:50 pm

Ok so I've had 11 goals hung up on my fridge for 6 months now. I've obtained only one of them.

Here they are:

#1- pay off SM CC $11,000. (DONE)
#2- DH have the big snip! = no more children!
#3- Pay off BOA cc started at 11,000 now down to $8000.
#4- Simplify
#5- Find a church home
#6- Contribute to kids 529 plans
#7- Date night with DH once a month
#8- Contribute to IRA's
#9-Lose at least 15lbs
#10- $10000 in Savings
#11- $2000 saved for land purchase

#1 is so far the only thing we've accomplished. I am going to look at this as the glass if half full and say we still have 6 months to accomplish all of this, right?!

We're going to visit family in exactly 11 days and I am doing a pantry challenge. Hopefully- we will only go to the store for milk. We have bread in the freezer and plenty of eggs.

I cannot wait for my garden to start growing. We've already been picking broccoli from it. I'll be canning and canning and canning hopefully this summer. Green beans and tomatoes for chili and spaghetti! Yay, I can't wait!

With the end of May also brings the end of preschool for my DD. Which means we'll be adding an extra $148 to the bills for 3 months at least! That excites me also!

Only thing I forsee not allowing using to meet goals this summer would be that my 17 and 18 year old brothers are living with us for 2 1/2 months. Feeding teenage boys somewhat scares me. I will defiently be buying bulk items as much as I can!

So, there it is...all laid out for me to see. Ahhhhhh

    Keep up the good work. As long as you are working toward your goals, you'll be in better shape than you were before. Remember, simply writing down your goals ensures that you will be ahead of the game more often than not.
