2007 Goals

January 1st, 2007 at 06:42 am

I was looking back over the goals I had previously set for 2007 and realized that I need to adjust them. Here is what I had originally planned on:

#1: $1,000 in EF for bare minimum
#2: pay off at least half of CC#2
#3: pay off furniture
#4: pay off DH's truck
#5: look over DH's 401K investments and determine if we should change the mix
#6: max out my IRA contributions
#7: get disability insurance on me
#8: hopefully have the term insurance process finished soon!

Because of my health issues I seriously doubt that #7 is going to happen any time soon, if at all, at least until we find out what the underlying issue is. And I realized that the more focused I am on less goals, the more I'll be driven to see them accomplished.

So, here are my "adjusted" 2007 goals:

#1: $2,000 in Emergency Fund
#2: CC #2 paid off
#3: pay off furniture
#4: get overall debt below $65,000

I'm going to keep it short and simple so I can really focus on those goals.

    The other will fall into place as you get more focused on making the really important things happen anyway!

    Good luck with your health tests!!

    How is the school work going?

    Thanks Julie!

    Lux...I ended up withdrawing from my class for this semester. With all the health issues I didn't want to get into a course and then not be able to finish it. I really have no idea what's ahead of me (hopefully something very simple) so I decided to take a break. DH really wanted me to take a break anyway since the last accounting class stressed me out so much.

    So I'm hoping to continue on with my accounting degree next semester.

    I really don't know what I'll do with myself. No classes, no church duties....maybe I'll read lots of books! :-)
