One more week!

May 24th, 2014 at 03:18 am

Anyone else excited about a three day weekend? I sure am!

If all goes as planned...in ONE WEEK, I will get to post that we are CC debt free! We have stayed uber focused since the first of the year on paying off the last of a massive debt that we'd accumulated over many years. About 2.5 years ago, we got really serious about facing the numbers and paying things off. We had several credit cards, 401k loans, and a car payment. We have paid off the 401k, car and all but the largest cc by the first of this year. We started the year with a $25,000 balance and we are down to $2499. To say I am excited is a real understatement. It is an incredible feeling when you think something is insurmountable...but then conquer it after lots of hard work!

This weekend my son turns 30. I will get to see all the kids and grandkids on Sunday- we haven't all been together since Christmas, so I am looking forward to it! The kids are all going camping. I am opting just to visit the campground for a day- which will be just perfect for gramma!

And in two weeks, I have a week off! Ive had a day or two here and there this year, but not a full week since last November, so I am really ready for the time off. Vacation plans are working on the country house and then heading over to the coast for 4 days with the 5th wheel.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Life is good!

    Congrats (pre-maturely)!

    I know how it is to want to post something in advance because you are excited lol

    I am just starting to pay my debt, I have a total of 67k, not including my mortgage. BUt it is encouraging to see others go through the same thing and wind up on top at the end. It must feel really good to be debt free. I have 2 boys, 3 and 1, and I want to be able to provide for them and I want to have a hefty retirement unlike my parents and many others their age right now.

    Keep up the good work!
