My boss sent me home for two days to get well from an upper respiratory infection. Yay!
And the bonuses that I was entited to this year actually came though!!!! I was able to pay-off over 90% of my total debt, and will officially be debt free in a couple of months now.
Each bonusI get in the future will be free and clear!!!
I keep going back to my credit cad and401K accounts to look at the balances again and again. I can't believe its real.
I've been in massive debt since I left college. And it was not only college debt, but added on debt year after year. Its been a monkey on my back and a crutch, and my closest friend for half my life.
And I thought I would miss it. My close friend and crutch.
But as I mailed the certified check to pay-off the 401K loan I couldn't stop smiling. I smiled at the teller who printed it for me. I smiled at the mail box.
And as I look at my accounts, which I've looked at every day for years with fear and regret, I smile so much.
And I have no doubts about how I'm going to live without the chains around my feet. I'm gonna celebrate.
Just as soon as I get rid of these boogers and the nasty fever that's keeping me down.
