Setting up 2009 Goals

February 4th, 2009 at 02:54 pm

We seem to be on-track with our goals so far.

Paid off the GTI, will pay off DH's credit card in a couple weeks.

So now I need to start thinking of additional goals.

For starters, we are going back to see DH's family next month. I've allocated $1700 for the trip between gas/food/hotel. DH's dad has pretty much decided against getting a pacemaker so this may be the last time we see him.

1) I'd like to save at least 1 month's worth of living expenses this year ($7300)

2) I'd like to also pay off my credit card

3) Visit Hawaii in October so that I can see my Dad and he can see the kids again

4) Graduate with my M.S. in Accounting and have an accounting job lined up so that I can take the CPA exam next year

I'll probably have to take a paycut coming up this year if I switch jobs. Right now I work from home and because I don't have to worry about childcare, its almost like I'm making $57K/year.

If I work outside the home, but in the industry I'm trained, a more likely salary would be around $45K+.

So we'll see. Overall these are my goals for the year.
