Just wanted to give you a quick update. With the $400 payment for digital video services rendered (pun intended), a $30 costco rebate and two hockey season ticket payements in, if I make my deposit tomorrow (Monday) then I will clear my September payments by $18.52 intead of being behind by $542.52.

I will hopefully have my FRL&trade paycheck direct deposited (after 3 months of waiting) into my CU account where I will be able to epay my refi mortgage and the first of a final 6 car payments. I will try to save enough over the next 45 days to cover at least half of my property tax payment, and pull the rest out of my HELOC.

After that, excess cash goes to pay down the HELOC. I will return to retirement investing with the $360.08 auto payment freed up in April of 2005. My FEWMNBN&trade 401k is beginning to show some recovery as are my two Roth accounts, and I plan to consolidate the Roths and roll over the IRA as soon as closing out funds will not secure a loss.

The one question mark remains my eFund. Having depleted some $14k over 10 1/2 months of FUL&trade, I have about $9k in equities remaining. I hope to be able to secure a compensation improvement this fall that will help me rebuild accessible savings.

And of course there remains my backup plan to win the lottery and buy my own little island out of the path of hurricanes.

Who wonders if anyone will actually get his little pun...
