Mortgage Update for February 2015

Whew!  It was a wild weekend.  My sister came to visit with her seven kids and they all stayed at my house.
 It is great to have a house big enough to accommodate them all.  I told her that in a few years I would be moving out to my property and they could all camp there but she wasn't very enthusiastic about that idea.  Something about snakes and scorpions...  Anyway, it was a lot of fun and I took Monday and Tuesday off so that I could hang out with them.  It was not fun to go to work today and face my long list of urgent email.

Since it is the end of the month, I made my February extra mortgage payment.  $1,200 extra brings the total to $46,798.  2 years and 8 months to go.  Only 2 years to go if I can start paying $1,600 extra but everything has to go perfectly.  And speaking of not going perfectly, I received an email tonight from my property management company.  My tenants are leaving in May and the management company is going to start showing the house to new tenants.  My current tenants were great.  They always paid on time.  I hope my next tenants are just as responsible and stay for many years.  And I hope I don't have a dreaded VACANCY for months.  That would be terrible.

Wow, seven kids. I think I could cope better with seven puppies but good you enjoyed yourself. Freedom is on the horizon!

It was fun after the initial shock of luggage for 8 people exploding in my house wore off. They did take everything with them so I only have to deal with laundering the bedding.

Sounds like you had a nice time with your sister and her kids. I had to laugh out loud about the camping out comment. I'm with her.

Hoping you find another great tenant for your house.

Dobermom, fencing out the snakes and other critters is my #1 priority. If another dog gets bitten I'm going to toss out my whole retirement plan and stay in town!
