Paid off Mortgage

October 30th, 2010 at 08:17 am

Paid off my mortgage this week. 11 years early on its 30 year loan. I actually think I could have done better but still a good thing. Just have to wait for the paperwork to go through to make it all official.

I'm also on vacation right now. Not doing anything special. Mostly watching scary Halloween movies.
I'm hoping to take 2 trips next year though.

Hope everyopne is doing well. And have a great Halloween.

Lost heat contest.

Well I did not turn on my heat but it got rather cold and kicked on on its own. It does this thing were it it blows the pilot light off the first time it runs. So I had to fiddle with it and let it run a little in
order to make sure its working ok. So I'm officialy out of the contest but I'm still going to try to keep my heat off as long as possible.

I decided not to post any more of my payday updates. At least for awhile. They helped me at first but I just can't keep up with it. I am doing well with my budgeting goals though. In a couple of weeks I'm going to pay off my house. Then I will be completely and totally debt free.

I also plan on saving at least $1200 by the end of the year for my Antarctica fund. Not even close to what I'll need but I have time and its pretty good considering that it wasn't an actual goal for this
year. So far I have about $800 in that account.

Looking forward to Halloween coming up. I always take
a vacation for it. Not going anywhere as far as i know. But the time off is nice and I always have a little scary Halloween movie marathon. I know that I am a strange one.
