A New You in 6 Short Weeks!

I'm feeling determined to get a few things accomplished in the next 6 weeks that I've been meaning to do for some time now.

It isn't so much that I couldn't do these things while working, but I do feel that they will be much easier to tend to while I'm not having to worry about work.

1. Start our TMMO (Total Money Makeover) w/ Dave Ramsey. This will include making a budget and starting our debt snowball with the eventual goal of becoming debt free.

2. Finish "organizing" the house. There is a lot of paperwork and "junk" in closets and the garage that needs to be sorted through and either thrown away or given to good will.

I believe these two things will give me a lot of peace. I know that might seem silly to some, but I'm tired of feeling anxious about debt and clutter. Plus, with a new baby, we owe it to him to make sure that we can provide for him in the best way possible. This means getting savings accounts set up for school, and also getting life insurance and all that great stuff.

DH goes back to work tomorrow. It has been so awesome having him at home with me, and I'm a little anxious about going at this alone, but I should be just fine. We will definitely miss having the daddy around during the day though!

I can't believe MP will already be 2 weeks old tomorrow! Ack! Slow down!

  1. Thanks for reminding me about the life insurance- still haven't done that, although Dave should be okay if I should suddenly kick off as my work offers 2x my salary for $1.40 a month- I took them up on that. I'm impressed that you are so motivated to do stuff during this time! Hopefully your swelling/water weight is ebbing by now, or it should shortly. :) TTYL
