And on to 2018!

2017 was filled with ups and downs, but mostly it was a good year. We spent time together as a family, we enjoyed seeing the world through the eyes of our first grandbaby, we loved watching our children forge ahead in their adult lives and mostly we appreciated our many blessings. Life is hard, but it is also wonderful.

On the financial side, I didn't quite make my goal of seeing our debt fall below $50k. I came close, though, and it will happen soon. We wrapped up the year having knocked $15,030.41 off our debt. If you ever wondered what the tortoise looks like in the tortoise and the hare story, just look at us!

Here's to another good year and here's to coming closer to the end of the debt road.

Happy New Year!

Sarah

  1. I'm the purple tortoise to the left of you... it's all good! I've been in debt for far too long. I was hopeful for 2019, but it will be in 2020. We will get this done.

  3. Slow and steady wins the race... :) I saw a title in the Dear Anne advice column "Life is Messy and That's Okay!" That's my new mantra. The year ahead will be full of ups and downs and that's ok!
    You are VERY close to being below $50,000 in debt. What a landmark!

Just some days I was in search for a loan of $ 100,000.00, As I was running out of money for feeding, School fees, My business was really going out of capital and my rent. I was scammed about $15,000.00 dollars and I decided not to involve my self in such business again. But a Friend of mine introduced me to a loan firm due to my appearance and doings and also my complains to her. And I told her that I am not interested in any loan deal anymore but she told me that there is still a sincere lender who she will recommend me to, And she gave me the details of this man who is called MOORE ROBBINSON. And I really put a trial and I am most greatful and lucky today, I was given a loan amount of $95,000,00 Dollars by this great firm MOORE LOAN COMPANY. If you are in need of a genuine, Sincere, durable and a truth worthy loan lender or financial assistance and also you know you can be reliable and trusted, capable of paying back at the due / duration time of the funds I will advice you to send your contact to them via email @[ mooreloancompany@yahoo.com] OR Test (414) 454-9493 .
