I was reflecting over 2010 and the financial transactions. We're still a CC-free-zone, the lights are still on and I can miss a months worth of meals and not make a dent in my self-insulation :lol:

All in all, it was a good year.

It could have been better... that is what 2011 is for!

I was talking to the little Greebo that sits on my shoulder swinging a wet noodle as I pay my bills and update the Quicken...


"pay more... pay more... you're skipping steps... why are you running through to BS3 when the cars aren't paid for yet?"

I still have the BEF fully funded and I was 1/3 way through BS3...

:nerv2: I transferred $1500 from the other account to put towards the car payment. I checked the balance, as of right now, I owe $2771 on it, at a gagging 13.45% interest!

February's payment is due the end of the month. I usually send in $400 (272 normal with extra for principal) SOOOOOOOOOOO... if my math is right, it will be paid for with the April's installment.

After that... on to the next car note!

Everyone should have a little Greebo in their life!

Congratulations, that's a big scary thing to do and it is well worth it in the end. :)

I was scared after I transferred it to the other account... PETRIFIED after I sent it to Chase.

I know it's the 'right' thing to do and the physical part of it was easy, but the mental aspect can be a bugger.

I do feel better now. I'll feel better when I can send in the last payment on the OTHER car and be totally debt free!

(and, I think a little Greebo is all I can handle in my life, I am too much of a chicken for more! :lol: )

What? He didn't tell you to sell the cars instead? Silly Shoulder-Greebo.

Sell the cars, drive a beater, that's my mantra now even though some days I do miss my CRV, there's not a day yet that I miss the payment.

Hang in there! You are much closer to the end than I am.

Great job, Lady V!! :clap:

BTW, just had to mention, that over the years here I've noticed that you have such a way with words! You would be great doing a column in a magazine or newspaper, or a blog, or something fun with your talent. :thumb:

Oops! Just noticed you ARE doing a blog! :D

Krbs - he knows I won't sell the cars and we need the warranty coverage until we can beef up the EF more.

FF - thank you, and I do have a blog. I haven't been as active as I would like to be, especially lately, but I do what I can (my blog)
