Hi everybody – I just joined and am sort of bumbling around trying to figure this Yakezie thing out….

My name is Meredith, and I started a blog a couple of weeks ago (Obey the Blog). It's a PF blog, not not in the traditional sense of giving other advice – it's more a journal of my journey getting our family finances together post-divorce and all the chaos that comes with it. I've selected a blog (Get Rich Slowly) to inspire small daily actions I can take to improve.

It's also going to have a reflective/spiritual bent to it – I want to find the balance between peace and prosperity. I don't want to spend all of my days worrying about the stock market. I want to enjoy my husband and children now, not later.

So I hope to get to know some like-minded folks here, learn some things from some blog-senseis, and progress towards balance. Onward and upward!

Welcome Meredith. I've only been here a couple of weeks, so pretty new here myself. This is a great group. I tend to read more than I comment, but I learn more when my mouth is closed and my fingers are still. :)
