and now for my ...Thursday Thoughts.....

So as I get ready to start writing this post, I come to realize this is my first post this year!?
I have been catching up on my reading. In reality I have too many books to ever get caught up, and there will always be another book waiting for me to read.  I also have been busy with work (progress report time) and I am still unpacking and organizing my new home.

If only I can win the lottery so I can read and  travel. Books and traveling takes time and money. Books alone can be very expensive hobby. I am a little scared to go back  and see how much I spent on books last year. This year I am going to keep a journal, of book related expenses. I'm hoping I can keep a decent budget with my book spending so I can not be so broke every paycheck. (groceries are kind of important)

I also have decided that this is MY YEAR! What I mean by that is this year IS a fresh start for me. I'm a new and first time home owner. That feeling of being a home owner has renewed my confidence. I have many plans for my home with plans for personal goals that I have set. This is not a New Years resolution I am making, but a promise to myself to succeed and achieve goals I have planned. My two top goals, is to plan on going back to school to complete my studies and to get healthy and fit. I use to run and I want to be in running shape, to run a 5K by summer.

Everyone have a wonderful day!!!
