Some of these are embarrassing, but since they were included in a blog challenge, I'm going to grin and bear it.
If you need help with budgeting or need to find a way to get your financial house in order, pick up a copy of Nicole Lapin's book, Rich Bitch-A Simple 12-Step Plan for Getting Your Financial Life Together...Finally. While the title might be off-putting to some, and there is some strong language inside, this is the best book I've found to help understand everything from a 401(k) to investing. Nicole uses easy, understandable terms so that you don't have to be a financial planner to understand any of it. With real-life testimony, her advice simply makes sense.

My day was filled with joy (image on the right) and peace (image on the left). I added the book because I know I'll be reading before the day is over. I hope you will, too, and I hope your day was just as joyful as mine!
I love rainy days, but my favorites are rainy nights. So even though this post is supposed to be about days, I'm choosing to share what I do on rainy nights, besides write.
I've previously written about places I wanted to go, but this was a bit of a twist. It's more about things I'd want to do on vacation, well, except for the cruise one. I love cruises and could go on one every six months. There's just something peaceful about sitting on the deck watching the ocean as the ship pushes through the water.
So what are some of your favorite things to do on vacation?
We all have regrets in life. I'm happy to say that, for the most part, I'm now living my life without them. However, over the years, I've had several. Here they are in no particular order.
1. I allowed someone to talk me out of joining the Air Force when I was nineteen. I've always regretted not taking that opportunity.
2. I wish I hadn't waited to so long to buy my first house. I kept putting it off for no reason other than I just didn't want the upkeep. Now I try not to think about all the money I threw away on renting.
3. I shouldn't have gotten a credit card when I was eighteen. I didn't know how to spend money, and it took me ten years to pay off that card!
4. I wish I'd not been so easily swayed when I was a teenager and others were deciding my path in life.
5. I wish I'd never given my heart to someone who didn't really want it.
6. I wish I'd never co-signed for a car with someone. Needless to say, that was a hard lesson learned. Another debt it too, me a long time to pay off.
So what about you? What regrets do you have?
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
