I have been down lately about how much further we have to go on this debt journey and wondering whether we can keep it up for the years it will take - not that there's really a choice, but it's depressing. But I paid a small bill today and plugged in my numbers to my debt total and realized that as of this morning, we have paid off $10,000 in 2012 alone! If we're able to keep up this pace, it's possible that we could pay off $20k in 12 months. That would be nearly twice what we paid off last year. Now that feels like progress! Maybe there is hope. Let's hope there is.
