Progress

Today the last payment for my car loan went through. Now we really own our car.

This is the third major debt that I've killed off this year. There are still big student loan debts and some credit debt, but finally finishing this one off is really good. I can put that payment towards other debts and bring them down even faster.

I need to work on building our emergency savings back up though. Pat and I both had to have dental work done and all told it probably cost up $2000 (our insurance pays for almost nothing -- we get reimbursement checks from them for $18). So, I'm crossing my fingers that nothing really bad happens while I try to build that back up.

But having finished the car loan is a big load off my mind. I've been looking forward to this for a long while.

Go you! Paying off my car (and receiving the title-- put it somewhere safe!) felt really good when it happened! That was $337.38/month that could go towards other debts!

Good mindset, keep up the good work!

yeah!

i'd like to make dinner for you someday. maybe you could come over here in the winter, i will try to crank the heat and make soup or whatever food you are in the mood for. although i admit overall my house's strong suit is summer and berry picking.
