Guess what I did Friday?!?!!
I managed to do two scrapbook pages. I haven't done any since, I think, August. So that was really good!!
But more importantly...
I paid off my van!!!
The same day it reached the 150k mark.
We've had it just a week longer than we've had our son. While I was pregnant, I was hauling my whale-sized self up into my husband's Dodge Ram because he didn't want Ella and me driving around in my little Ford Escort. I soon realized that with two babies in the back of the Quad cab I wouldn't have room for groceries or the hundreds of things you have to pack when you travel with children. I prayed for a van. I know, I know. Some people just aren't 'van people', but I always knew I would drive a van after I had kids...at least while they're little.
I had no idea how we'd be able to afford a van on one income; we also had a truck payment. We looked into trading in the truck, but we just couldn't find a good deal.
One Sunday night, we drove onto our church's parking lot and there was 'my' van with a For Sale sign in the window. Tell me that God didn't provide my van! It had 113k miles on it, but when we learned who owned it, we knew that it was well cared for. Clean, clean, clean!!
I love my little van.
Maybe I should show it some love and wash it. (adding that to the to-do list)
This could be the year. The year where we become debt-free with the exception of our mortgage.
We've made the first step...
Feels so good.
