I'm in a kind of strange place right now. I'm constantly thinking how easy life is down here while at the same time so ready to get back to the US. I'm planning my next vacation for February. That ties in with the fact that right now, as I type, all credit cards are paid off. All balances at zero. I also made a large payment to the Jeep, hopefully the next one will pay it off. I will put the plane tickets on a credit card, but that will be paid off next paycheck as well. So, things are coming together. Finally. I'm giving myself December off in a way, no expectations, just enjoy the here and now. In January I start seriously looking for work back in the States.

I turned electricity on at the house in Nashville, talked to the codes folks who had been pretty much forced to condemn the front deck, and am moving along on the process of getting the house sold. That will impact the total debt free part. If I have to put mega bucks into the house to sell it (an oxymoron) I may not pay off the Jeep next month. Whatever, it is almost a done deal which ever way it goes.

No big decisions. I am trying to pace myself. I don't want to get too excited about being 'debt free' till I actually get there. For now, life down here is pretty easy.


  1. I can sense your excitement as you eye being debt free. It is my biggest goal right now and a driving force for me also. Although right now the force is in a holding pattern awaiting my legs recovery. You have done an amazing job moving through the process!

  2. I am debt free and it is a great place to be. Glad you are getting there.

  3. Glad to hear that everything seems to be falling in place for you. I am sure that 2013 will be a great year.

    Congratulations on paying off your credit cards and best of luck in the sell of your house.

  4. Awesome work lady... absofreaking awesome! :)
