Well, I wouldn't say what I do is actually "dancing", but I did move around a little today....

Wrote the check today for the final payment on our (my) credit card debt! Started my plan back in March of 1999, and approximately $40K later (debt and continued use) am finally done. Makes me sick to my stomach looking at that number, but it also empowers me to not get stuck in that trap again...EVER.

Congratulations! That was a long trip. Please be sure to share some of the "positives" with us from having a balanced budget :).
