Happy New Year

2009 is going to be the year of change for me! Monday I signed my divorce papers and Tuesday I signed the lease on my new house. Last night my friend H came over and helped me move some boxes. I am off tomorrow and the kids are with their dad so I will spend the day packing and moving boxes. Saturday the movers and my paretns are coming over to move the furniture and such.

I am looking forward to moving on from the upheval of the last year. I have some short and long term goals in mind for the next year and beyond. I'm not going to make resolutions this year, just set some goals for myself and then strive to meet those targets.

My #1 goal for this year is to have a fully funded emergency fund. Now that I am a single parent this is something that I feel is of utmost importance for me and my kids. My other goal for this year is to go back to school, but since I have already submitted my application there is not much else I can do to work towards that goal.

I'll post pictures of the new house soon.
