2010 Goals

I guess it's that time again to look towards the new year and the things I'm  wanting to accomplish this year.
I really don't have much, just a few small things. I know for both Frank and myself our biggest goal this coming year is to get our credit card debt paid off. I was looking at our monthly budget planner yesterday for January 2008 then was looking  at January 2009 and thinking about January 2010. It's amazing the amount of debt we used to have for being so young. We were just that, young and naive. I can happily say that has completely changed in the 3 years we've been together. We have 2 credit cards left to pay off (it would be one.. but that's a long story ha, lets just say its not completely my fault-my credit card) and a personal loan. This is not including our car payment and motorcycle payment, I look at that the same way I look at the Cox bill. We're still waiting on our money from the military for moving, we most likely wont see that until February (12 weeks my butt! more like 20!). Then shortly after that we will be getting our tax return. It will be happy times in the Longley house after those two things arrive!

My personal goal for 2010... now you have to imagine me yelling and throwing my fist in the air... NO INJURIES FOR 2010!! Just healing my sciatica.. If this does happen then i'm hoping it turns into bigger and better opportunities for myself.

To everyone else and there new goals, good luck I hope you all succeed in 2010!!

Sad huh? How credit debt gets us! I never would have thought I'd be in debt in high school. Oh well,it's part of life and part of getting your family started. I am so excited for tax returns!!! Lol, we could use the money too. Debt free life for me is where it's at! haha.
