I survived the holiday baking season. The only thing I can say without going into details is that it was awful by the end and I am so glad it’s over! Terrible to say that isn’t it?
During that time though I am happy to report a very good thing and very bummed to report a very not so great thing.
Here is the very good thing:
I paid off the Old Navy card!! All $2048.00 left on it. In full. Felt amazing!
Now for the not so great news… Remember that emergency room visit I had in November? I am getting a whopping bill for over $3500 from the hospital from it. That’s after insurance took care of only about a $1000 of it. Gotta love that high deductible plan we all have right?
I was devastated at first but not for long. We have to keep going. I will get that $3500 paid off next is all. I am not worrying a single second about it. Yes it sucks but the Old Navy is gone and it’s never coming back.
We accomplished paying off $6500 in debt in 5 months. That’s a reason to celebrate in my book!
I hope you all had a very Happy Christmas and please enjoy your New Year. It’s always a new beginning. -MM

Exactly the right attitude! Hurrah for getting rid of Old Navy, 🎉👏💐🏅🍾! As for the ER, I know how you feel. Been there, several times, I’m afraid. You are doing great, and if you managed Christmas with cash, give yourself a huge pat on the back!
Thank you Kathy! Yes I only charged a few hundred dollars this Christmas season which I am very proud about. 🙂 I dont want to get down on the medical bill. There will always be something right?

Very true, and you did great managing Christmas!
Congratulations! What an incredible achievement. Life sometimes throws things at you and you just have to take them in your step, which is what you are doing. Well done, what a great feeling to have that Old Navy card gone! And not an insignificant amount either.
Thanks Catherine! Yes it was the second largest of the debt we are trying to pay off in 80 weeks. I will just have the maintain the payments on the other debts and get the medical bill paid off first.
