Just wrote out the check to the hospital.  After the dealing with the crazy lady a few weeks ago and finally getting someone who knew what was going on, the last check has been written.  I am $485.23 closer to being debt free.  Best thing is that since it is paid before December 31, I can use it on my taxes.

It is going to be a great day!!!


UPDATE:  The spam nut has gone crazy on this post so for this post only I am closing comments.  If you want to comment  on this post please just leave a comment in the latest post.  Thanks

I am going to update my totals right now.



  1. I get happy when I pay off bills too! Next month I’ll pay off the last of my student loan, I’m so excited. You are doing so well with your goals, congrats.
