The twins both had plans all day today. Sea Cadet is doing his clinicals with work in a local hospital and ride alongs with the ambulance. History was working all day. And Princess enjoyed a down day in her room. I got a ton of stuff done:
- I meal prepped for the week.
- Cleaned my room and did laundry.
- Caught up on work.
- Played with the dogs.
- Watched a show on Amazon Prime.
- Took a nap.
- Logged on and paid off my tax debt.
BOOM! Yes, you read that right. Another debt bites the dust!
And the exciting news is that I think by the end of the month, I will be down to my last three debts…
- Student Loan
- Car Payment
- Credit Card
And I believe, I will have a good payment toward my credit card.
I didn’t actually review my finances. But I knew I had enough stocked away from #nospendjanuary and I just wanted that debt gone, so I just paid it! And that in itself felt amazing!
Man, it feels good. This is the final financial tie to my ex-husband. And while I won’t get the letter in the mail for a week or two. That burden is gone.
It’s been almost 12 years since we split up. And it has been hard financially. Looking back there are so many things I would have done differently. Well, maybe, as I was fearful and felt so guilty for failing at my marriage. I remained that way for a long time.
But I do wish I had bitten the bullet and gotten a lawyer from the get go. (I filed our divorce paperwork and did all the paperwork myself.) But it is finally over…over…over! It really does feel like this is a turning point in my life. Shaking that burden I have carried for so long. Now, I am only responsible for me, my choices and my debt. And that is like a breathe of fresh air.
Watch out world, Debt Free Hope is coming!!!!
