<< I'm finally down to Four Digit Debt! >>

I'm so thrilled for you, Shire! I just love to read Happy Dance events! You've been an inspiration for quite a while now.

My own debt is finally under 6 digits. I haven't been paying too much attention to my total number, since it's just too big to fit comfortably in my mind. I find it more comfortable to just watch the snowballed account's total drop. I noticed by accident yesterday that I'm under 90K.

If I were able to pay my entire yearly income to the debt, it would take a little more than 2 years to clear. But, as reality is hard to ignore, and eating is still on my needs list, I'll be sweating it out for a while longer than that.

When I get depressed and feel like the river will sweep me away, it's the Happy Dance posts like yours that keep me going.

Thanks, and Congratulations!
