Reached debt goal and then some!

January 20th, 2010 at 07:26 am

Whew, my dad FINALLY cashed two of my checks! I'm going to have to leave my payments to him off my monthly debt repayment goals; he's too much of a wild card. Smile

So my debt to him is down to $4000! And I've paid $2820 of debt this month, well exceeding my goal of $1999.

Very exciting! In other good news, NT called one of the in-home daycare lady's references and she gave a really strong recommendation. Apparently the lady loves infants, is really reliable and knows everything there is to know about raising kids. Good enough for us! He may try to call the others today, but we feel very sure even if he can't get hold of them in time. We're going to get our foot in the door ASAP. When we went to meet her, she said she wouldn't hold the spot indefinitely unless we were sure, so I told her if we committed to her, we'd pay for our first month right away, even though we're not starting until July. Well worth it for the peace of mind!

Personal life is going really well...I just have to keep away from the news today. Aftershock in Haiti, mass murder in Va., healthcare reform dead in the water--way too much for my emotional pregnant self to deal with, so I'm going to focus on how everything's going well for us right now. I have to keep telling myself (as AS told me once) that my feeling really sad isn't going to help anyone.

    COngrats on the debt payoff! And on finding someone to care for the little one...finding someone you can trust is never an easy task!

    Yipee! Good news all around. I agree focus on the positve...not the negative.

    Sometimes we all need a break from the news....Glad to hear you might go for in-home daycare. I think the personal touch and real love a child can get from an individual carer is tops.

    Still carrying forward checks in the register, in order to balance out, that my Dad has not cashed!
