I Want to Scream...

...I'M DEBT FREE. I'm listening to the Dave Ramsey Radio show right now. Fridays is Debt Free Friday. It is when people call in and tell their stories and SCREAM over the radio. I love listening to the stories because they are inspiring and they make me so excited and pumped. They also make me so mad at my debt. I'm so ready to be done with. We are working really hard and we are making good progress. It just feels like it's taking so long.

All we have left in Baby Step 2 is our Student Loans. Things were moving really well while we had our second job, but we don't those jobs anymore so things are going to be moving more slowly. I know we can get other jobs, but the job market is so tight right now. The YWCA did move me back up to 40 hours, from only 36, so that is going to help us. Steve and I now both have the opportunity to work overtime, but it is generally encouraged that we don't.
After the summer is over, we will probably start looking again for other part time jobs. So many people right now are laid off looking for their only full or part time job, so part of me feels bad if I go in and take a job from someone who needs it more than I do.

Anyone else going through this process have encouragement for us as we go on the journey?

Therefore encourage one another and build eachother up, just as you are doing.
1 Thessalonions 5:11 NIV
