I managed to make an extra mortgage payment at the end of December. My total is now....$6,870. Tomorrow when my regular payment goes through it will be only $6,270 or something close. It is getting so low, I can't believe it. Only 3 more months to go if I can stay within my budget. I added up December's expenses today and, thankfully, I came in under the line. Of course it did help that I stole some money away from the mortgage and designated it for gifts back in November.
I can't seem to get to sleep tonight. Even though I know I have to get up early and go to work tomorrow, I don't want to believe it. It was a very fun vacation and I don't want it to end. But if I am going to get this mortgage paid off I had better put some effort in to my job so I can keep collecting those paychecks!
