Location United States
Introduction I am thirty-five years old. I am married and have one daughter. I am a Kindergarten Teacher. Recently I decided that I am sick of living paycheck to paycheck and suffering when an unexpected cost comes up - like my car needing to be fixed. I bought Ramit Sethi's book "I Will Teach You To Be Rich!" and have made MONEY my project. Of course I would love to easily win the lotto or inherit some grand amount of money from a rich relative- but it hasn't happened yet. So, I decided that if I was going to "get rich" or at least get smarter about money I was going to have to do it step by step. This is my blog journaling my journey. As a teacher I am off work for the summer (lucky, I know) so I obviously have a bit more time on my hands now so I hope to make a good bit of money this summer and according to my money-guru Ramit "once you start earning, it becomes much easier to earn more."
Interests Reading, Writing, Scrapbooking, Coloring, Playing with my daughter, Playing Board Games, Classic Movies, Blogging, Facebook, Emailing, Cooking, Baking, Baking Bread, MAKING MONEY
Favorite Movies I love classic movies the best: Mostly Rock Hudson/Doris Day movies, Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers/Fred Astaire, Jimmy Stewart. I love Three Coins in a Fountain, Auntie Mame, An Affair to Remember, Bells of St. Mary's, Gone With the Wind, Sound of Music, I LOVE MUSICALS, Schindler's List, Fried Green Tomatoes, Aemelie, Chocolat, I LOVE CHRISTMAS MOVIES
Favorite Music I have a very eclectic array of music that I listen to. My current favorites include Jackson Browne, Rock Hudson/Doris Day movie soundtrack, Julieta Venegas, Leona Lewis, The Beatles, The Outfield, and I love Country, My favorite type of music is Mariachi.
Favorite Books I am currently rereading all of Maeve Binchy's, Adriana Trigiani's Books, Amy Tan, Elizabeth Berg. I have to note that I did just finish reading Julie and Julia and of course was inspired by it. Do I expect TV interviews and throngs of devotees? It would be nice...but my goal is personal - to get my family into a financially stable and comfortable place while putting money away to one day: 1.leisurely retirement, 2.send daughter to college, 3. remodel house for said leisurely retirement.
