A present to ourselves

Well, since my camera batteries are being ridiculous and I can't seem to get them charged enough to upload pictures and blog about the fun things that have happened.... let's talk about something else.

Okay, yes, we were stupid and went into debt for a couple things (worthwhile purchases, but still, a bad choice). (Admitting it is the first step, right??) I've been watching the budget really closely and we've been throwing money at the remaining debt for the last few months. Right now we're on target to have the only debt be our mortgage in July, but with the economic stimulus payment that is supposedly on its way soon, I'm aiming for June. Coincidentally, June 28th is our 5-year wedding anniversary! I think that's a fabulous anniversary gift, knocking off a debt, wouldn't you agree? :-D

Sounds dreamy!! Between a bit of lingering moving debt, and the monstrous ever looming school debt it will be a while until we wittle it down to just the house! Even with the simulus package! :) Congrats!!

That is such an awesome gift to yourselves!

I can't wait to get mine in May. Probably more like the end of May.

I can't wait, cause I really need it. Hey, you are not alone with buying things and going into debt for them and trying to become debt free.

(If you could see me know, you would see my arm way up in the air)

I can't believe it has been 5 years this June! WOW, it seems so surreal.

That is awesome!

Debt free is the way to be! Good luck with that.
