>> Good going, shirehobbit.

Thanks, Molly, :)

>> Do you have a debt chain? I wish I had made one at that point.

After reading your post I made one! What a project that turned out to be! *laughing* Everything was coming along just fine (I used a craft paper cutter because I cannot cut straight!) until it came time to link them. First I discovered that the gadget with the roll of glue dots was empty, then I tried an old glue bottle, but too much glue drowned the first link (turns out the tip was cemented into the cap with dried glue). I ended up stapling the links with a small stapler (it jammed up dozen times but it got the job done).

I'm guessing that most people would break a link each time they paid off a thousand dollars). I've decided to not break any links until every last dollar is paid off. I wrote "BREAK HERE" on two links and turned the chain into a paper necklace. At my Freedom Party I'm going to take off the "necklace" then break each link and finally share a custom made chocolate cake with friends!

>> For some reason, I found the month that I hit $3k really depressing.

*nodding* Some months it feels like you are never going to get it all paid off.

But today I feel like all things are possible!
