We are all feeling better and things are slowly getting back to normal.  Unfortunately, I am behind on almost everything but I will slowly catch up.  No point in trying to do everything in one day.

I need to put the finishing touches on my take on credit card issuers and then I will post.  I’m only about a week late.

Now for some good news – I’ll go so far as to say some GREAT news.  Anyone remember when I started this blog back in October where I wrote about all of our debt?    I wish the great news was that we were debt free but it’s not.  Not yet anyway.  Everything has been paid off except for the car.   We still owe $6,200 on the car.   The car will definitely be paid off in  2009 but I’m not sure exactly when.  We have a big expense coming up in August (more about that later) and need to save a little more to cover it.

We are $6,200 from DEBT FREEDOM.



  1. So you have essentially paid off roughly 13K since only Oct of last year? That’s DAMN impressive! I am new to your blog but I will be reading more to learn how you have done it thus far! Congratulations and keep up the GREAT work 🙂

  10. Congratulations on becoming debt free. That is a good goal to have. But once you finally becoming debt free you need to do something to secure your freedom. You never know when an unexpected life problem will occur. I work with a team that helps others become debt free and secure that freedom so they don’t ever have to go back to being in debt. If your interested check out my website or send me a comment back.
