Happy New Year!

I can't believe that it's been nearly 6 months since I've posted a new entry. Wow! How time flies. I was sticking to my budget, but somewhere along the way I lost track of my goals and wasn't putting anything extra toward my bills or into my savings. Then at Christmas I completely blew it all.

It's okay. I'm picking myself up and dusting myself off to begin again. I can say that my credit score it up almost 100 points from this time last year. On the down side I opened up 2 gas card accounts, 4 store charge cards and 1 new credit card all in the last six months. Unfortunately I maxed out 3 of them over the holidays.

Tonight I'm working on my new budget for 2009. I'll post my goals and plan tomorrow. My mom and I are going on a cruise in October and I want to lose over 100lbs. I'll probably start posting those updates on this blog as well. It's too much for me to have more than one blog.
