|Picked up a pretty decent sized per diem check this month paid a sizable chunk of the BOA loan down after I paid off the NFCU Visa that I racked up a balance on because the GF needed some cash and I ran into some liquidity issues when a canceled charge locked up funds for almost a week. Less than $500 left on the Balance which means I should definitely be set on my goal to eliminate this by EOY, and could still have some cash to make for a good Christmas. I'm so excited I can't believe that back in March I would be so close to eliminating this overwhelming burden from my shoulders. Words cannot express the elation that I feel. I'm slated to go on a trip to Europe through work, and the per diem that I get from that combined with my mid-month check will truly knock this debt out of the park. Also back on the First I got a promotion and am now earning an additional $400/mo. I plan to size this increase back to retirement when the new year starts considering that I will no longer need the additional income. Things are looking up!!!
On a down note, houses in my neighborhood aren't selling so I reduced the value in my asset line and like virtually every other American my retirement took a nosedive losing over $3K in value... needless to say my net worth isn't looking to phenomenal.|
