Welcome to My World....

They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. This is my first step. I have kicked around the idea of a blog for, oh, about 14 months now. Nothing like procrastinating. So today, I'm giving this a shot.

I'll start by telling you just a bit about myself and what I'm doing here... I'm a single mom to a fabulous sixteen year old daughter. I work full time outside the home, in addition to being Penelope's full time parent. To complete our little family, we have two pups that we simply adore. Thing 1 is an eleven year old bichon and Thing 2 is a two year old weimaraner.

Our house is constantly chaotic, often messy and always full of immense love. I haven't always made the very best decisions when it comes to our finances which is why at this time I'm carrying a bunch of credit card debt and have very little saved for the home we want to own or for Penelope's college education.

This blog will be an attempt to keep myself accountable to the goals of getting out of debt, getting into our own home and getting Penelope to college....getting us there.

So, I hope you'll stick around as our journey continues.


  1. We have alot in common :) I think I'm going to enjoy staying up to date with your posts. If you have time, I know how time is precious, maybe check out my blog, too :) If not, I hope you don't mind my prying :)

  2. I will definitely check out your blog this evening when I get home from work! I've enjoyed reading your comments this morning, but for now, I had better rush to get out the door because work awaits!
