Mortgage Update for February 2016
My rental house is paid off and rented at the moment.
My mobile home is where we live during the week on school days when my nephew needs to catch the school bus. The mobile home and the weekend house are in 2 different school districts, the mobile home being in the far better school district which is why we go through this trouble.
So, back to the mortgage. If I keep paying an extra $1,200 a month, I will have the house paid off in 2 years and 2 months. Seems like it never gets closer but I know it is...slowly. The new total is $37,839.
I got a letter from the bank today advertising their home equity lines of credit. Hmm...I would like a new kitchen...but no. If I do any improvements, I want them to be done right before I put the house on the market so that nothing can break or get ruined. My kitchen works fine, well, except for the garbage disposal and the dishwasher which can't work now since the garbage disposal is dead. But I don't use either of those anyway.
Today I am alone at home and it is a nice break. My nephew is off to a school Disneyland trip and won't be back until Saturday night so I can do whatever I like and I don't have to think about homework or dinner or computer time limits or getting to school on time. Ahhh... I like it.
