Another one gone!

Student Loan (A) is now history! That moocher stayed way too long and I am glad to bid him farewell.

With that, I have paid off just shy of 80 percent of my starting debt. Eighty percent. I am doing this. It is taking forever, but I am doing it.

We had to replace the alternator in one of the cars last weekend. And when the new alternator went in, the battery balked. So we got a new one of those, too. It was an expensive visit to the shop, but we paid the $700+ bill in cash. There was a time when that would have been as far from the realm of possibility as a visit from an alien.

The tortoise is winning. The tortoise is winning.



  1. Good for you. 80% is lovely. Look at that debt list and see how far you have come. Mine is taking forever also. We can do this.

  2. You are truly an inspiration. You have come so far. I wish this post had a "like" button.

  3. Congrats! You are winning this race!

  4. Yeah!!! I can completely relate!! We are winning!!!

  5. That's wonderful! The end of the road is in sight!
