Haven’t written an entry in forever…but I’m making steady progress. In fact, I’ve paid off yet another account, and this one was huge, in terms of original balance AND in terms of the monthly payment. So that payment, which is enormous, will roll to the next card down. They’re falling now like dominoes – I will pay off one at the beginning of August, one at the beginning of September, and one in December. Which only leaves one last account, which will pay off in March unless my year-end bonus is good, in which case I may be able to pay off completely in December or the first of January.
There’s no real difference in my money situation at the moment – things are as tight as ever, and in fact are unpleasantly tight, with gas prices and food prices skyrocketing…but somehow, seeing the light at the end of the tunnel makes it more bearable. I do have to pay property taxes, which might require the bonus and so might interfere with early payoff – but worst case scenario, I’m paid off in March. I cannot even begin to describe how good it feels to know that I am this close.
As hard as it was, I am so glad I worked the second job. It’s made all the difference not only in time to pay off, but in my mind state. I know that I’ve worked really hard to do this and that feels great.
