A would-be stay at home mom working full-time as a teacher. I teach at my old Highschool, working side-by-side with my own teachers. I blog to keep the Texan grandparents updated and chronicle our life for future reference. (In other words, I don't have a real baby-book or diary.) Comments make my day.

Some of you may have recently noticed a gadget I added at the bottom of my blog.


Well, it's been there, nonetheless. I needed to put it somewhere, and I thought this would the perfect place. If finances are taboo for you, just don't go there...seriously, just avoid the bottom- that's why I put it there! Anyway, encouragement/ideas/congrats as we go along are welcome, but by no means expected. I thought it might add another dimension to the blog, and give me something to look back at when I feel like we've gotten nowhere!
So, here's where we stand today:

  • about $1000 is medical
  • the rest is student loans (I know, I know...)
  • we hope to be done with most (if not all of it) before we move out of my parents' place (Mayish of 2012)

Wow, if you can pay of that much in 2 yrs that is great! I hope you can. Good luck with that ;)

Part of creating a goal is declaring it publicly. Your goal is achievable - whether in two years or not remains to be seen. You will, however, have a smaller number in two years and be feeling really confident about dealing with the rest of it.

My friend Hayley took on a "crazy" goal (in my opinion crazy). It was a real challenge for her. I asked her if she would consider writing up her journey. She took the challenge. She said that because she made a public declaration, she wouldn't back out.

She wrote 6 posts. The last one is available to read as part of Day 22 of #31DBBB on my blog. Here is the title in case you have a chance to look and be encouraged - I love your widget! You can do it!
