CANNOT go by quick enough!!!!  

For those of you new to the board....WELCOME.....and I hope and pray you do not have to get out of debt the way my husband and I did.  It's been a curse and a blessing all at once.  How does that make sense?  We were so far in debt, he lost mutliple jobs and we had to close a side business.  We first visited a lawyer 5 years ago almost to the day.  We offically filed on February 24, 2009.  We struggled so hard to live on the budget, then he landed a great job and things have looked up ever since.  Our payments were enormous.  $518 a week.  But we've done it.

I cannot thank everyone here for all the support during my count downs.  Some of them have been silly and childish, but heck, it keep my spirits up.   To me, that's all that mattered.  My husband is very excited as well and we have learned how to adjust our lives and enjoy and much simplier life style.

Good luck to all the newbies.  I hope you can get the encouragement here that you need to help you through the process of paying off your debt on your own terms.

Norma, a lesson you have shown us all is how giving someone can be even with a very tight budget. You have shared advice, ideas, encouragement, laughter....I know everyone is waiting for the post that is coming. Best wishes!
