Man, It's been a long time...

I've been financially miserable and didn't want my blog to become emotionally draining for all you FV peeps that stumble upon it...
I guess I should update... I'm hellabroke! Scary broke that is... and tomorrow I may get laid off! *smirk, chuckle*.... I went gung-ho on the debt that I have seriously about $200 in my savings... totally used up the EF that was a MISTAKE!!
However, I think I needed to start at rockbottom to take this seriously... With the fall fling I ran into several journals of mine (all of which only had one entry) in which I came to realize that since 2000 my goals have been the same 1) get out of debt 2) lose weight 3) apply for grad school 4) stop eating out 5) get a boyfriend... all of which I am in worse shape then back then... Then again in 2003, and 2005, and 2006, and September 2007... same thing... first entry with the first goal. Nothing changed but the DATE!! Except that I got engaged to two losers since then both of which I no longer have contact...
So, I've been reflecting on that and it really is time for a change!
So with that said... 2009 Goals:
1) get out of debt
2) lose weight
3) apply for grad school
4) stop eating out
5) get a boyfriend... I can actually do without this one... I'm not smart enough to be left alone to pick a mate... from now on they have to come with letters of recommendation!!
BTW- I've been brown bagging lunch and eating dinner at home... I feel so much better, energy level is up! Yesterday I cooked a turkey!! Today frittata.. and I'm waiting for my apple chips to finish baking as we "speak"... 6 months ago, I would have bet good money against me if someone had told me I'd be at home on a Sunday night packing a lunch and baking... I guess I'm maturing
