i was thinking… if i’m going to embark on this new journey called life without children at home… then maybe i should put some goals on a list… or maybe, maybe i should at least have some sort of direction…

here goes…

step 1 – move to Parkville to be closer to Atchison and back into my old rental at 6th & Main that i love… for me.
step 2 – plant a garden, vegetable & flowers
step 3 – become somewhat handy… nearly impossible!
step 4 – clear up debt issues; fresh start
amex/shawn/student loans/bankruptcy

things to accomplish…
– debt-free aside from car
– involved in my community
– volunteering regularly with organizations that i’m passionate about
– quality time with joshua
– church on the regular
– spending quality time with friends

career change? maybe… let’s just keep these bumping around like they have been… who knows where this nearly-empty-nester will end up. the avg person changes careers 3 times in their life… and i’ve been doing accounting for 15+ yrs… maybe one day… i won’t.
1. flight attendant
2. wedding planner
3. cafe business owner

a little exciting… a little scary… definitely completely new to me. who decides what i do on the daily? me… just me, that’s who. :/
