Just wanted to share with folks who would understand.... I've been having my own little imaginary "debt free call" with Dave Ramsey in my head because TONIGHT I wrote the final check to pay off our (only) debt!!!!!

 

It was a Home Equity Line from when we refinanced this house in August, 2009.  We started at $42,000 or so.  And now it is GONE!

 

 

YEEEEEEE- HAW!!!!  Too bad we still can't really afford this house..... the mortgage is 36% of our take home pay with me working, and I HATE my job......

 

 

But THAT'S a worry for another day, because tonight I am DEBT FREE!!!!!

Congrats!

Whoo Hooo!

 

How awesome for you, being debt free is such a relief, and good to hear you and yours have gotten rid of that stress. Go splurge a bit (we did a night out of sushi, paid with cash of course), then get back and attack that FFEF!
