Much of the new debt is from bills that came in over the last 2 months, but even so, I thought we had been making progress, so seeing the grand total go up was NOT fun! And then taking the,"Well, if I stick my head in the sand JUST a bit further...it will all be good" attitude has not helped any either.
So, anyhow, I'm back, with a new name, and defintely a renewed sense of "This has GOT to STOP". I read a great quote on the Motley Fool site last night-I think I must have thought about it a bunch last night, because here I am now. I redid some of the quote to fit our family better, but the gist of it goes, "I'm getting out. I'm breaking the cycle. I owe that much to myself, my husband, and my kid. Thanks for the info, the encouragement, the heads-up, and especially the slap-you-in-the-face-with-the-truth posts that has helped me to realize: There's something better than dying in debt." The lady had just been to a family gathering where one of her sisters told her, "EVERYONE has debt. That's just how it is. EVERYONE dies in debt." Her response was great,"Hold on, Tono-what's this WE stuff?!?!" Right then, I just knew that she was right-there's MUCH more to life than stressing about debt.
So, here I am, back to give it another whirl...
