What's next?

This past year has been amazing! I have done things that a year ago I would have thought impossible. I quit a job that consumed my life. I learned a lot about priorities and balance(that could be a whole post itself). Quitting meant I needed to find new options for my girls schooling. Thank goodness I had written down goals when I pulled my kids out of public school, looking back at our original plans helped me make some hard decisions. We decided to enroll them in our local public schools, and they are doing great. Next, we got serious about getting control of our finances. In April, I reread Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover, and we started to work through the Baby Steps. Darren and I began budgeting TOGETHER, and using cash to pay for our expenses. Miracles happened! We were able to pay off all of our debt (except for the house) at the beginning of this month! This whole process has gotten me thinking about what it is I really want to be doing with my time. I keep having thoughts about blogging. I have a handful of blogs that I love to read, and find so inspiring, comparing myself to them I always come up short. Yet, the thoughts that I should be blogging keep coming. I guess we'll see what happens, but I'm going to give blogging a shot again.
