Oh Norma you are making GREAT progress!
i am loving spring too, and not being employed right now is actually really fun. It was over 70 yesterday and I cleaned out my gardens of old perennials and leaves. I want to buy some pansies today!
My severence checks are actually larger than my normal checks were because there is no FSA taken out or 401k, so yesterday I paid off DH's credit card, that 3 years ago was $18k!!! I also paid off the small credit cards I used for cruise shopping ($41 to Macy's, $157 to JCP, etc.) I used the cards because I had no summer clothes in my size and got discounts when using them. And I had a pay-off plan, which I kept.
Dh gets a bonus today - yahooo! And I am building up the Efund as well.

Norma, I am so happy for you! It's great that you'll managed to get that e-fund back up to $1,000. I'll keep my fingers crossed that no emergencies come your way.

101 weeks... I will be so excited to see that number go down to two digits. Woot-woot!!
