The pictures in my slide show are ones that I have taken in Tahiti, Ireland, Hawaii, and on 2 different trips to Australia. I love landscape photos and have been blessed to be able to capture photos of some of the most beautiful places in the world. Enjoy!

Life Lists

Is it easy to fit your life in a list?  I've been thinking a lot lately how I've been kind of a fly by the seat of your pants kind of person.  I'm not sure how I ended up this way, but I kind of like just going with the flow.  Problem is, it really hasn't gotten me that far.  One thing I love so much about Gregg is that he keeps me grounded.  Where I'm just kind of like "ahh whatever" he is more like "we need to do this, this, and this."  I love that about him.  I'm trying to be more like that.  

So today I tried to buy a car.  It didn't work out so well.  First off, I owe too much on my jeep and it isn't really worth anything.  My negative equity is pretty bad right now.  Second of all, they said my credit score was too low.  Everyone tried tellin me my payments would be over $500 a month...soooo not happening so I walked away from each one.  So I came home and checked my credit score based on the company they pulled and my credit report showed it at about 60 points higher than what the dealership tried to tell me.  So this has me confused a little bit.  I have student loan debt and I have my car that I have now.  I have about $3500 in unpaid medical debt (yes, I know...this affects my score heavily) but other than that, there isn't anything on my report anymore.  The stuff that I did have on there has now fallen off because it was all more than 7 years old.  But the point is, I didn't pay my medical bills and now my credit is suffering.  For whatever reason, I didn't pay much attention to it.  I just wasn't being responsible. 

So tonight, I'm making some lists.  I need to start keeping track of my life and start living like a responsible 28 (soon to be 29) year old.  Thirty is right around the corner.  Anyway, here is a start to my lists.  Some of them I have already completed, but will add them anyway as they were on my "mental" list.  :)  I'll revisit these lists later and mark them off as they happen.  :)  Some of them will be ongoing until I leave this earthly realm.  :)
