70 Yes, 70 weeks to go until my freedom.  I'm SOOOOO  excited to enter the 60's next week!  And our balance is down to $36,494.

Oh, I can hardly wait :)

It's not easy Shell....Some days are really hard to drag myself out of bed and go to work when I don't really feel like it.  I suffer from heart problems, I have a pacemaker, & I've started having arthritis problems lately.  I'm hoping when we finish up our Chapter 13 payments ($518 a week) that I can work closer to home and devote all my paycheck as an extra payment to our mortgage because at the end of the 70 wks. that is all we will owe.  Grant it my car & truck will have large mileage on them, but maybe they can make it a little longer. 

I'll continue my 40 hrs. a week and long commute for now, but hopefully in 70 weeks I can make life a little easier on me.  In the meantime, I'll try to continue to keep my chin up :)

Oh my gosh, $518 a week! More than $2000 a month? That is amazing. 

I need to stop whining and get moving.

Thanks for the kick in the pants :).
