We’ve recently passed the 6 month anniversary of our big announcement (creation of this blog!) to pay down our debts. It’s disconcerting to us both that we’ve lost steam– gone off course. This doesn’t mean we haven’t paid down any debt- we have, just not as much as we’d like.
In order to stay on track for the 3 year mark, we have to get cuh-ray-zay! with our goals. Yes. I said that. With emphasis on the ray.
I’m a bit disappointed with ourselves- me, mainly (Elisabeth), as I’m the one who is handling the blogging. Being held accountable to the strangers that read the most intimate details of our finances is why we started this blog– it is helpful, cathartic, and quite frankly, we don’t feel like going it alone.
There is nothing more motivating than being where you don’t want to be. We don’t want to be living in a townhome next to the discoball spinning, loud music listening (though respectful and kind) neighbors. I’m tired of having to walk our dog on a leash and taking her to the dog park every day. I can not wait to move. Again.
So. You’ll be seeing a lot more of me. Many more updates are coming & they will be weak at first. But with time, they will get stronger, and before you know it, 2.5 years will pass and you’ll be scratching your head thinking– how’d they do it!? And I’ll remind you that you were here all along– that’s how.
So. Our new year starts today: Dec. 1. Look for exciting things happening here– very exciting!
