I was relaxing, watching TV when this weight hit me smack dab in the chest. Blood started rushing to my face and I could feel my cheeks turning red.
Then it went away. I breathed a sigh of relief.
I realized…I didn’t have to pay Credit Card #5 this month.
I’ve had that card since 1998, and every month usually between the 4th and the 8th of the month my payment is due. That is, until this month. I did a large balance transfer which counted as my payment and the card is now basically paid off.
I have to wonder how many months it will take until I no longer feel the internal clock inside of me going off because my payment might be late. Even though the feelings of perhaps missing my payment aren’t very nice, I can live with it if it means I can breath that huge sigh of relief afterwards. 🙂
