I can’t believe I started this blog about 2 1/2 months ago.   My plan was to work on the layout  and visit other blogs and do a little “practice’ writing until Jan. 1st.  It’s amazing how connected you begin to feel to the people who visit and encourage you daily.  You can not imagine how much you all have motivated me.  Once I got the first comment from Jennifer at Finding Financial Peace I couldn’t wait to get started.   I have paid off more than $2,500 in debt in just the short time I’ve been on here ( I haven’t updated all of December’s total yet) and all of you have cheered me on along the way.
I love knowing that people stop to  read and are sometimes encouraged.  I enjoy reading your blogs and feel as if I know many of your children, husbands, boyfriends, bosses, co-workers and everyone else you write about.

We are all at different places on our journeys to becoming debt free but we understand each other more than the people in our real lives understand this desire we have to pay off debt and live without debt.

I just want to say a special Thank You to all of you.  When I began this blog I had little more than a small hope that I could be debt free in 2009.  Now, I know without a doubt that I’ll make.  Hey, I’ve given up Diet Coke and chips because I didn’t want to come back and tell you all I failed.  There is something great about this online world and I thank you all for allowing me to share it with you.

Goodbye, 2008 and Hello, 2009.  It’s going to be a great year and I can’t wait.



  1. Happy New Year to you too. 2009 is going to be our year, bring it on 🙂
