This week we are Setting a Goal, and the talking about our plan to accomplish it. I have mulled over this post for about a week now. I have tons of goals and I totally believe in writing them all down. I am a list lover (like you didn’t already know that!), so it only makes sense that I may lists for my goals. Today I am going to share my biggest goal with you.

Here are some keys for setting a goal:

  • Be specific about your goal.
  • Set a date for reaching this goal.
  • Devise a plan for reaching the goal.
  • Indicate where and with whom you will accomplish this goal.


My Goal is to find and buy a home.

  • Qualify for enough money to buy a home in the expensive f*cking state. (it is so ridiculous here, but the houses are much bigger then the ones in florida)
  • Find a home big enough for my clan/in the desired school system/close to employment/that we all love. (we kinda picked one, but i know there is always a chance someone else will snatch it up, as much dread as i feel about that. at least now i know what i am looking for)
  • Budget enough money for closing costs and moving expenses. (this would usually include a down payment as well, but we are going to use a VA loan, so zero down payment)
  • Buy the house. (and all the fun that involves; survey, appraisal, inspection, haggling, agonizing for an answer, etc..)
  • Hire movers. (no way i am packing and moving us…again, especially since Miguel’s knees don’t work anymore)
  • Move my clan into my new home. (i hope to do this by 1/15/16…or sooner)

How exciting that I get to do this with all of you to witness my woes! This is going to be a long process and I promise to BORE YOU ALL TO TEARS with the details, (are you getting as excited as i am?) I bought a house two years ago and it was the most stressful thing ever. That doesn’t stop my excitement for this or my motivation.

How about you, feel like setting a goal?
