It's all about me now

I just got finished reading a blog that reminds me a lot of my current situation so I decided to write about my journey. 

I'm a 36 year old divorced mother of 3 kids. My ex-husband was/is a cheating little scoundrel. We separated 3 times during our 14 year marriage. All 3 times was based on the fact that I was simply not happy. We had nice things. You know...the nice cars, kids were in excellent schools, nice job, 5200 sq.ft house on 3 acres. Things looked great from the outside but things were NOT good. I could sit here and blame the failure of our marriage on him but I'm not going to do that. I'm at the point in my life that I've forgiven him and I'm ready to move on. I didn't quite realize that he would purchase a house with another woman only 7 days after our divorce was final but hey...THAT'S THE WAY IT GOES.

Anyway, I've just turned 36. I was laid off in 2008 and have not found a job since. I was living off savings and 401K but that has run out so I've decided to move back home with my parents. Yes. I'm at home with my parents with 3 children. This was obviously a hard decision but a decision that I had to make. 

I promise myself:

  • To loose 40 pounds. My current weight is 212 pounds. 
  • To bring my credit score up. (TOO EMBARRASSED TO GIVE MY CURRENT SCORE)
  • To build my savings
  • To finish my degree

Hope I didn't bore you.  I'll be posting updates about my progress.
