get out of debt, and build up a substantial amount of savings
2013

Thanks to an inheritance from my Uncle Jim, I paid off my credit card debt. I incurred some hospital debt a couple of years ago when my daughter had to be taken to the emergency room in McHenry, Illinois. The hospital would not recognize Georgia Peachcare, and when I sent the bill to my exwife, she did not push it with Georgia Peachcare, so I finally accepted the debt as my own, and started paying off on it this year.

We started with an introductory half hour lesson at Arthur Murray
