We made it!!!

December 19th, 2011 at 04:23 pm

Yes, today I set up the payment to meet the $30K mortgage principal pay down of 2011!! We are officially down from $243,500 to $213,500 in one year. The principal amount is where it should be in April of 2013. Woo Hoo! I still want to cash in our coin jar, which I'll do next Monday. I'm super excited!

My DS#1 spring college tuition is paid ($5323.00)and I just have to order D#2 yearbook. The school offers a discount of $15 when students preorder the yearbook. He is a senior and this is the only yearbook I purchased throughout the years.


My husband and I bought and Iphone 4S for DS#1 for Christmas along with a few other things. DS#2 we'll get cash equal to the same amount of money we spent on his brother. My husband and I do not exchange gifts. We've done this for the 21 years we've been married.


Christmas break starts Friday and I'll be off until January 2nd. Enjoy the rest of the week.
