May 2012 Goals



I have been VERY inspired by Crystal at Money Saving Mom's Blog to have some "goals". I use to be that type of person, but quite frankly I find it difficult to deal with life generally and thought goals would just make it worse. I want to BEAT this by setting goals for myself. I can't let the devil kill my life. I am a child of the King.  So without further ado... my goals for May.  Please be kind and Don't laugh.
