Hi!   

I'm Hope.

I'm a mom.

I'm a woman (as you may have guessed).

And very soon, I will own a tool belt.

Why?  
Because I want to. 

Because I can.

With my soon-to-be acquired tool belt (tool laden, of course), some hard work, and my family supporting me, I'll embark on a new project. The project is for fun, and for learning, but mostly, it's a first big step toward improving my financial situation, and my life!

I'm going to mess it up, fix it up, destroy it, and fix it.  (The house and my life, that is). I'll make a lot of mistakes, lose some money, and wish I had done things differently.  At the end of the day, though, I'm going to nail it.

Come along!
