Not losing sight of the goal.


In a year of crazy turmoil…from my father, thinking I was stuck at my dead end job and finding out my husband has so many medical issues, there truly has been a silver lining with my new job. The last few weeks have been challenging but rewarding in both professionally and financially and I’m very (very) thankful for this opportunity.

It is important to me to keep the eye on the prize especially with increased income. While currently we’ve been given a windfall, I am very aware that our financial situation can change at a drop of the house and want to make sure that we indeed pay off our debt in 2012. No one can’t guaranteed that we won’t have another “Great Recession.”

I will need your help to keep me in line. We have to beat this debt monster and finally live debt free. There are so many things tempting me especially after living on next to nothing for so many years to spend, spend, and spend like never before. While others have several goals for 2012, I have just one – to melt my debt snowball once and for all.


  1. I'll be cheering you on, you CAN do it!

  2. Now that all the little bills are gone, I am down to three biggies including the house and it is harder to stay focused. I have put off so many things, but I will persevere and so will you, because I will drag you with me, kicking and screaming if I have to, and I will expect the same thing from you!

  3. I must say that keeping goals in sight is so so important. A lot of changes saw you pass by in 2011, so I wish that a lot of much better, positive changes welcome you in 2012. Keep that goal within sight and no doubt you'll surprise us all.
