Guess I'll try out this blog thing

April 18th, 2011 at 08:35 pm

Stuck. Until recently, that is what would come to mind anytime I would think about my family's future. With monthly expenses outpacing cash flow, I just couldn't see how my wife and I would be able to get off of the debt treadmill.

Fast forward to today. We have a budget, we're paying down debt, and most importantly: we have hope for a much brighter future.

The only regret I've had since we started turning things around is that I haven't recorded our financial accomplishments and mishaps. I've been lurking around these blogs and the forums for months, but now I'm ready to crawl out from my comfy rock and start blogging!

Should the stars align tomorrow, my next post will provide a snapshot of where our finances stand today, as well as what we've managed to pay off since May of last year.
