Off With Their Heads

We cut up ALL of our credit cards last Thursday night for our financial class. We had a lot. Not all of them had been put to use or had been activated, but all in all it felt good to cut them all up. We also got our minivan loan paid off too thanks to the third check we got in January. Love the third check months, I wish they happened more often. Now we just have to get two school loans paid off. We will be going after that "like a gazelle". Quoted from Nacho Libre and Dave Ramsey. We like the way Nacho says it better. So that is our new catch phrase until we get them paid off. I love having goals that are achievable. I am having anxiety over this whole food storage goal of mine. I know I have to just take it one step at a time. Baby Steps. Just like Sam is doing now, he only takes a few steps at a time. I will follow his example and take it a little at a time.

Wow!!!! We, too, are trying to pay off debts and to save money. It costs so much more for us to live here than it did in Murray. It is scary. We need some video of Sam trying to walk.

I am so proud of you!! You will feel so good when you don't have any debt. It really does bring peace.

wow!!! You are so dedicated! It's like that post you did about peer pressure and friends being examples. You are the example now. THanks!!!
