Just checked online and sent a message to Dewey that the paycheck came through this morning. So did the income taxes. Told him now was the time to decide if he wanted me to pick him up and fly off to Hawaii :o)
We are rich in a great many ways here in our family, on our homestead. But very rarely does that fall under the financial category. Today, however, it does. For us, anyway.
We are sitting on just over $12k. Woo Hoo :o)
My excitement for the dollar amount, though, will be short-lived. By 9:15, I will have less than a paycheck amount remaining. But....
- The big loan will be as close to GONE as I can get it today.
- The smaller loan will get a sizable kick in the shorts, as well.
- Property taxes and yearly garbage bill will be paid.
- A small handful (very small, but still...) of essentials bought and stocked
Then we're back to normal here :o) I will be doubling payments and eating beans and rice for a couple of months, then both loans will be totally GONE. Then the real fun livin' will begin...house planning, land clearing, all that good stuff.
I see a real pretty glow coming from the other side of this debt fence...and it ain't no fire over there, it's a party going on!
