Seven in ’07 Update

1. Lose 70 lbs: Well, if losing the same 20 twice counts I’m halfway there! No. This was not a good year for the old diet, that’s for sure. I am making a solemn vow today to begin again and hopefully drop 30 by the end of the year.
2. Run a 5K: Not yet, but I do still have time, don’t I?
3. Find a Job with a future: Ah what a quandary! I have a job and I like it a lot, but I will always be dependent on the budget and the dreaded SEIs (Student Evaluation of Instruction) to keep it. I need a PhD to have a future in my job and I’ve already got too damn much student loan debt for my salary. An MBA in Western Wisconsin is worth less than $40K a year. It makes me want to throw up. Money’s not everything, but everything costs money, you know?
4. Build a Nest Egg: Uhm… No. Not even close.
5. Develop Some Willpower and break some bad habits: Some, but alas! Not all.
6. Stop Being My Own Worst Enemy: Well, for the time being my worst enemy is the real estate market.
7. Take Hubby on a Vacation: This isn’t going to happen. We’ve not had two days alone since he got back from Kuwait and we’re not likely to anytime soon. We’d hoped to go to a friend’s wedding in Jamaica next summer, but if our financial situation doesn’t improve that won’t happen. Neither will another adoption and that is beyond depressing.

  1. 20 lbs. is still awesome, by the way.

    What’s a nest egg?

  2. It is awesome, and more than I’ve done btw.

    I’m still rooting for you Lisa. Good things DO happen to good people.
