Goodbye 2012, and Goodbye DEBT!!!

So the last time I posted about our debt..WAY back in July...we were at $7,863.  Today, December 31, 2012, our balance is $694.  I had really really really hoped to have it completely paid off before January 1, 2013, but all things considered, it's really amazing that we've come this far.  For example, in November, we had a busted pipe under the house.  It was leaking nasty water and who-knows-what-else under our foundation.  It looked like a swamp under there.  It was a $3,000 job to remove the gunk and replace the pipe.  THANKFULLY, our homeowners insurance covered the majority of it and we ended up paying about $200 out of pocket.  It was another miracle.  The plumber said that he RARELY sees an insurance company pick up the tab for this type of issue. 

We have had so many experiences like this that have just really been incredible.  2012 was good to us, and I have a feeling 2013 is going to be even better!!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  (Look for me on January 15th when Eric gets paid again - I'll be doing the Debt-Free-Happy-Dance!!)

I just want to thank everyone who bought pies, cinnamon rolls, crochet goodies, sewing services, etc, etc.  We really couldn't have done this without you!
