Will I ever catch up?

I have found a new passion for reading others' blogs which only makes me want to update ours more often! Bodie asked me the other day about our "blog"...."do we have one" he asked? Yes, I replied...."Does anybody look at it?"...No one besides Kelly (if I'm that lucky!) because I don't update it that much! So I am truly going to try and do better...which it really helps that we now have internet at the house!

We have moved in (sort of...there are still piles of crap everywhere!), and adopted a new dog on Sunday. She is 12 weeks old, a black lab mix named Sox and as soon as I have pictures (actually a camera that works) I will put some up! We are still looking for Loki, but wanted Rose and us to have a canine friend back in our lives.

Our lives have changed a little bit more here recently...I am starting a new job on Monday and leaving the insurance business. The pressure of sales quotas and the like proved to be more than I wanted or could handle right now. We want to have another child and decided that me being completely stressed out all the time was not the best way to attempt to bring another child into the world.

We are going to have to make some adjustments to our lives and we are both trying to bring ourselves on board. I have been reading lots of blogs about living frugally and have read Dave Ramsey's book "The Total Money Makeover" and we are going to concentrate very hard on learning to live within our means and reducing our debt. So any help or ideas would be much appreciated!

That's about it for now...I will try to update a couple of times a week...that's my goal!
