I’ve been thinking about this post for days. Trying to figure out exactly what I want to say and how I want to say it. You know what I’ve figured out? Basically nothing. My thoughts are all over the place. All I know for sure is that I want to be completely debt free by the time I’m 40.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
C. S. Lewis
I’m tired of sending my husband off to work every single day. I know he wants to be home. I know he would thrive at home. Him being at home won’t mean that he doesn’t “work” it just means that he will have a different kind of work. A work that is more suited to him.
You know the only thing that is keeping him tied to the 9 to 5 is DEBT. Big fat UGLY debt. I want it gone. I want to REALLY own our house. It is a near impossible goal. But, I like “impossible” things. When people say it can’t be done I say, “Watch me!”
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.

So, here is the goal in black and white – Pay off $300k worth of debt in less than 7 years with starting income of just about $52k/year. Now that you understand the goal you may really think we’ve gone crazy, and maybe we have. But, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t try, right?
Set your goals high, and don’t stop till you get there.
