As you may know, Cheez and I have a goal of being debt free by the end of the year. Today, I made the last payment on one of those bills that never seem to go away. WOO HOO for us!! Buh-bye Wells Fargo Financial! Adios! Hasta La Vista baby! It will feel SO good to be out of debt! I keep telling myself this as we are struggling through these next months without any of the "fun extras". (Heck...sometimes without even the stark necessities!)
Do you ever get jealous of other family members who seem to have it all?? This weekend, I became aware of the fact that Cheez's brother just bought a cabin up in Show Low. A nice place up in the pines, away from the heat of the summer here. The same family just got back from a week's cruise to Alaska. In the past few years, they have also vacationed to Hawaii and taken a Mexican Rivera cruise. These are things I would LOVE to do. It is hard for me to say, but I am EXTREMELY jealous of them! But here's the thing....I am unwilling to sell my soul to the devil of multiple credit cards and 3rd Mortgages to to make such things happen for my family. While those things would be great at the moment, the worry someone else owning our life makes it SO not worth it.
I look forward to the Peace that being out of debt will bring. Cabins and Hawaii be danged!!
