Beans and Rice, Rice and Beans


Today Dave, Beatrice and I are going down to the credit union to make the last payment on our car. We're paying off the debt 4 months earlier than we anticipated and 4 YEARS earlier than our scheduled payment book. We've been making quadruple payments since February and God has blessed us by allowing us to make the extra money to do this.
Yesterday we sold our spa which has supplied us with the money that we need to make our first quadruple payment on my student loan debt this month. We have calculated that it will take us approximately 12 months of quad-payments to pay off my student loan. When that is paid off we'll move on to Dave's student loan and then we'll be debt-free except for our home. We are so thrilled to be on this path!
This is such a silver lining to this dark week as well. We happy to have something extra-special to be happy about.
