I just wrote the last check to pay off our credit card debts. We are now officially paid off of everything except the house loan and student loan. Sometime soon I'll call and see how much the house would have to appraise for to have our mortgage insurance dropped (which should be easy, the house was undervalued because of an old furnace and suface neglect.) If we save enough money, I might be able to get the two things that I want most for the house-a cellphone and a cable upgrade (want HBO or something). |
In two weeks we should have a final diagnosis on the big screen TV in the living room. Either it will work, and we decide where it goes, or it's dead, friends scavange parts, and we disassemble it for a trip to the curb. Its almost tempting to turn the shell into an iguana cage.
This afternoon is a trip to Topeka, to get my tax ID number. I could mail it in, but by doing it in person, it gets done today. And maybe we can stop by the army surplus store on the way back, time permitting. jensixstones accepted my invite to accompany me on this daytime oddessy.
