My friend Andrea from Moody Mama Says told me about this really cool "project" thing going on in the blogosphere. It's called 52 to Fabulous and you should definitely check it out!
This is the first week for 52 to Fabulous, and the topic this week is "What a girl wants".
What do I want to do this year?
I want to become more financially stable. I'm a single mom and although I've increase my income since 2001 about 400% (literally!) I don't get much outside support and Maryland is a very expensive place to live. It's up to me to provide my children's clothing, food, utilities, housing, medical costs, as well as incidentals - not to mention activities. I'd love to stop renting and have money in the bank. Because I'm a single mom handling all I covered above, I have no money saved up and if (God forbid) something was to happen, I wouldn't have any money to take care of it.
I want to get healthier. This involves losing some weight as well as cutting down smoking, with a final goal of quitting. Both of these goals take time and perseverance as well as support, but I know that I can do it.
I want more positive, lasting relationships in my life. I've had tons of friends in my lifetime, and for whatever reason, we've grown apart; but I honestly cannot say I have an "In Real Life" Best Friend. It's sad to say, but there's not one person that I could 100% of the time count on to be there, and that's sad.
I'm looking forward to Week 2! Are you in?
