October Mortgage Progress

I know it's November already but my extra mortgage payment was delayed because my renters were late with the rent. I did make an online payment last Friday but it wasn't going to be processed until today so I am not sure I can make another online payment for November. I can only make one online payment a month. I can always go in to a branch and tell them to make a payment, it's just more trouble.

Anyway, I made an extra payment of $1,136 for October. It wasn't as much as I had planned because I didn't get the rent money until today but I will add that rent money to my November payment and it will all even out. I now owe $33,102. If I don't make any more extra payments the mortgage will be gone in 5 years and 3 months. If I stick with my mortgage payoff plan I will have it paid off in 1 year and 1 month.

My boss asked me today, so, how's your 5 year plan going? Is it down to three years yet? Um, well, it's down to 1 1/2 years I said. (I added a few months just in case I need more time). Then he said, and what will you do after that? I said, then I will decide what kind of home I am going to live in and get out of my home on wheels. He just went to the local home tour last weekend so he was full of suggestions on building materials and techniques.

And a different subject, what does it mean when your computer deletes all of your information? Is it trying to tell me something? You know how I mentioned a while back that it was making this sound like it was continuously running and the light was blinking rapidly? Well, it stopped doing that today. It also go rid of all of my files. It's like a brand new computer. No pictures, no music, no favorites. So that is why I don't have the usual house picture on this post. They are all gone. It's kind of creepy.

Good progress. Your November payment sounds like it is goint to be a big one.

Also sounds like the Great Pumpkin or Computer Fairy or something left you a new one. Very strange.

Hopefully it will be. Now I'm waiting on November's rent.

I just started using Qwest's backup service a few months ago so luckily everything is still out there in cyber space. Qwest said it would take over 5 hours to restore all of my files. I don't know, I think I like this new uncluttered computer. It's much faster. I'm just restoring my blog pictures for now.

Thats excellent progress. I am impressed with how you dont waver.

Is this part of your de-cluttering??? YOu are finally getting rid of a few things!

Haha Lizzie, yes, I think that should count as decluttering.
