Gazelle In Tents.

So I read a book. It's called The Total Money Makeover - it's by Dave Ramsey. I read it because the man that bought it for me was ca-ute. I'm glad I read it because his ideas about money management are a constant (most of the time) in the back of my mind when I go to spend.

He's a debt nazi - believes that if you live like no one else now that you can live like no one else later. Work, work, work - pay off debt. Save, save, save - pay cash for everything.

Dear Dave,

I hope by the time I'm living like no one else I will have plenty of living left to do. I hope I don't have to wait to see Europe (or at least the East Coast) until I'm on a steady diet of Metamucil. I appreciate all the responsibility your book has instilled in me - but someday soon this intense little gazelle would like to spend some time in tents. In the wilderness - where gazelles belong.



P.S. I'm going to spend a fortune on Kenny Chesney tickets and I don't CARE!

HAH! I took the Dave Ramsey course, and I thought it was great. But somehow I still haven't been able to get that emergency fund saved, due to all the emergency things that pop up! If I'm not careful, THIS gazelle may have to actually LIVE in a tent!
