Tomorrow....big payoff day!

September 28th, 2006 at 04:05 pm

Tomorrow is the day I have been waiting for! I get an extra paycheck tomorrow, and that along with budgeted money from DH's other job, I will be paying off...[drum roll please] $2000!!! [and the crowd cheers wildly!!!] Big Grin That will leave us with only $700 on CC1! That will easily be paid off in the near future. DH's job owes him money for our cell phone to the tune of $400.00. (4 months worth) I just need DH to send in the information!!! Mad I'm getting really aggravated with him about this. My job owes me $425 reimbursement for a college course I took. I just signed up for a second course that was $400, so $25 can go to the CC. In other words, I just put the new class on the CC, so this reimbursement will basically cover this course. My point is, of the $700 remaining, $425 is coming to me soon. And within the next 2 weeks I see $516 coming in from income. We will basically have CC1 paid off very soon.

I don't know why that's so important to me exactly. Once this card is paid off, we still have a card with $20,000 on it! That's no small potatoes. I guess it's just that it's a goal I set, and my plan was to accomplish that goal by the end of October and we are accomplishing it early in October.

We are struggleing to stay within budget now that I am back to work. I went out to eat with co-workers yesterday. It was the entire speech group, and we only do that once or twice a year. While there, I ordered an extra appetizer to bring home to DH. I like to do that for him. I'm tired and just don't feel like cooking or I don't feel like eating what I have, so we order out. It's a horrible habit. Life is stressful at the moment, and I am one who turns to greasy food when I'm stressed. Wink Bring on the Chinese! Why is that comfort food? I'm not sure, but it is.

Tonight I've asked DH to return home from his church job with a coke. I just really need a coke. LOL! Most women would want a beer! Me? I gotta have my Coke!

    It's great that you're paying off a credit card. Don't focus on that big boulder that's left -- just chip away, it'll be gone eventually!

    Too exciting!! Wish I had a CC that was paid off! I've still got a couple but the balances are all going DOWN. No charges since I put them all into no interest accounts.

    Good job meeting your goal..........and early too. Maybe the next CC needs to be hacked into smaller pieces?? Split up onto a couple cards, with lower interest?? Or, just imaginary totals to reach in paying it off by certain dates??

    Whatever you choose.........you're on a roll. Good going!

    WAY TO GO!!

    And congratulations. I know how steep the slope can be, and how hard the climb.
