Debt Freeeeee!

Well, here is something to celebrate: We paid off our little black car today!

Early in our marriage we incurred a little debt. Really not too much, but then the interest rates went way up and it was a struggle to get taken care of. Then my car was totaled and we got a car loan and bought the little black car.

THEN we figured out that living with payments here and there was NOT the way we wanted to live!

We started paying off all those little things as fast as we could and got rid of our credit cards (and then heard about Dave Ramsey on the Radio!) and all we were left with was the car loan.

Well, today Abe made the last big chunk of a payment and paid it off! We now own two cars. How exciting. But even more exciting (In Dave Ramsey Style) :

WE'RE DEBT FREEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!
