Payment Number Nine!

Hello!   I didn’t post last night because I have come down with a case of sinus!  I am better today because I took an allergy pill last night and this morning got to the store for daytime sinus relief.

I came home after dropping my daughter off and slept until 11:00!  I didn’t sleep well because of the sinus last night. Hopefully I can nip this in the bud.

I have good news…


I have been waiting with bated breath to see this payment taken from my account.

It seems like forever since my last payment.

I hate to wish away my life, but C’mon!  Just a little faster would be okay with me.

But here we are, one more month down and just that much closer to a Discharge.

Only 51 payments to go.   But who’s counting?

I can’t wait to reach the 40s.  Those are going to be great milestones. Then the 30s, then the 20s then 10s… then single digits!

No, I am not counting the days! What do you mean?  Not at all.

Check this out.

I swear to you I am NOT OBSESSED! 

I just  bought these new envelopes.  There are 40 in there.


I will use these to pay my mortgage.  When they are done, I will only have 11 payments to go as of today.

I am NOT obsessed.

See this?  How can you miss it right?  Need sunglasses.


I am going to use those to label all those envelopes plus the 11 more I will need to be done with my payments.  (I have to add a few more to this sheet)!  But who’s counting?

So when these labels are used up, I will be done!

I am not obsessed!

See this page?


Yep, I created it so that every time a payment is made, I update it so that I can see the progress.

I am not obsessed.

What makes you think I am obsessed?  Who’s obsessed?

I am beginning to think I might be a little obsessed and that might be why time is crawling.

  1. Hahaha. Yeah, you’re not obsessed at all. No sir. ((backs away veeeeeeery slowly))

    That’s an awesome idea though. You could even put a small number on the envelopes to keep track. I may totally steal that idea, though there just aren’t a lot of things I can pay via check these days… most are online, thankfully.

  3. I know that swimming laps is different than the hell you are going through, but I always thought, “1/10th of the way through… 1/9th of the way… On lap fifteen, I rememeber being fifteen years old… 1/3d of the way… Now I hit the halfway mark….”

    Remember when you were at four? You’re twice as far along as you were then.

    • Thank you Bridget for the perspective!!! You are right. I am getting there… as long as life doesn’t throw any weird curve balls! I can’t wait to post about the latest fear, but sworn to secrecy until its over! WOW!
