Glad I came across this again. Thanks for posting it. It was a very good read and inspires me to buckle down. Want to get rid of the mortgage early too.

This is really an inspiration. I like their sense of humor about their debt hurdles and plans.

I have my goals set as well to pay ours off early! what an amazing feeling it must be!
lol, it was the opposite feeling for me! We paid it off, realized that our capital was now all tied up in house-equity - and immediately put a a full 30-year mortgage on it. That money provided the seed money for rental houses and for stock-index purchases. That seed money now accounts for millions of our Net Worth. So for us, NOT having a paid-off mortgage was one of our best decisions.
Sometimes when I see folks prepaying fixed 30yr 4% loans I wonder - what are they thinking, 4% FR capital is a valuable resource, I would never prepay it.

I really love your writing style, I enjoyed reading. Me and my wife also are having a house to pay off but unfortunately, she has lost her job. She is employed now but those 2 months, while she was looking for it were hard ones. I even had to take a little loan at missouri-cashadvance.com. We have no any relatives left and we were waiting for having kids for too long, so there was nobody to help us. But now it's fine. And I really want to say that you have the sweetest tiny little motivations that could ever be, God, bless them! And don't be sorry for the Violet Terror, you will have everything to be happy in the future, the important thing is - you are now happy house owners.

I'm so glad when people can pay off their debt and be free! We have mortgage debt and no matter what the bank says our interest rate is, once you see what they charge for your loan, it is close to 80% and not 3-4-5% like they say it is. It's not a linear equation.

When DH lost his job (many times), we went to the bank to lower our mortgage payments. We were never late on paying. The bank said NO. He didn't have a job, so NO to that...Does that make any sense?? And if he did have a job, they would say yes? As if..... I say that to pay debt off ASAP makes for a good sleeping pill! Rest easy at night! LOL
