Last Year of My 20s

I'm turning 30 this year. I'm excited for everything yet to come - the small things: birthday party, new friends, spending more time with old friends, trips; and the big things: new job (or renewed commitment to my current job), engagement, marriage, new house, kids. I'm trying not to feel incredibly impatient for this year to end, but it's proving difficult. I feel like after this year I can put a lot of unhappiness firmly behind me (fresh start!). I'm feeling very optimistic and bright-eyed about the future.

I'm still hopeful I can have $5k saved up by the end of the year (at least). I'm going on an eBay blitz today, and possibly a Facebook one as well - selling whatever I can. The goal is to get to 10k, and then throw everything extra at my credit cards. I know that's not an approach everyone can get behind, but I want a peace of mind cushion. I think both my and H's jobs are stable, but you never know.

It's hard for me to find time for this blog. I feel like I have very little time as it is, and sometimes everything I want to get done overwhelms me (that's when I need to plop myself in front of the tv and watch something mindless!). But I do think this blog keeps me on track and keeps me honest, so I'll try to put the effort in to keep it going. That may still mean posts every couple months, but better than nothing! Thanks again for coming along on my journey... I'm happy to see so many of you still around after all these years. :)
