In June of 2009 I posted this it was not until January of 2010 that we actually signed up for Financial Peace University.
And I have not written on the blog in a year, we continue to make progress. I think the biggest lesson we have learned this year, is that no matter how much you plan, life will happen. We had some repairs, unexpected bills and more unexpected bills last year and the first half of this year.
1. Repair our well for a total of about $600.
2. Dental work $3,500.
3. Car repair $1,800.
4. Tax bill $4,644.
5. Car accident repair $700.
6. Another car accident repair $500.
And we own our two cars and have $2,894 left on our home equity loan. We took that loan out in 2005 for a total of $42,000. After the home equity loan we will attack the student loan. We are full of optimism, so opposite from where we were those dark days in 2009. Things can turn around, for anyone at anytime. You just have to step out and embrace the change.
