Hi y’all. It’s the Friday before Thanksgiving and I am feeling fabulous. The check is in the mail to pay off our insurance in full, which was one of our goals for this month and next week we will put $500 into savings, which is 50% of our second goal for the month.
Our mortgage also comes out today, which will be the final payment in our first year with a 10 year mortgage. Last time this year, we owed $142,000 on our house and as of the end of today, we will owe $128,695. It just blows my mind how much faster this is going than when it was a 30 year mortgage. If only we’d done a 10 or 15 year from the beginning!
Other positives – Mr. PoniesandFIRE has been getting mad hours at work lately. His next two checks should be way above what we budgeted for, which is fabulous going into vacation and the holiday season.
We got a bunch of snow last night and PoniesandFIREjr is psyched to play in the snow this weekend. I have a ton of lessons lined up to teach tomorrow and then it’s family time the next 36 hours. We work next week Monday through Wednesday and then it’s Thanksgiving and family vaca for the next 12 days straight!!!!
