I Don’t Feel As Excited As I Thought I Would After Paying Off My Personal Loan
Y’all remember that dang ol’ debt I’ve been working on??? Well, yesterday, I threw $400 at it after ensuring my checking account wouldn’t drop to an uncomfortable point. Technically, that $400 was in the budget from my last paycheck and should have been paid to the loan on 10/27, but I spent a bit of Amazonian Budget Buster money on my beater cars and other stuff mid-October and I wanted to make sure I could make it, as in not spend any un-budgeted money, to the next payday. I made it y’all, and slid the $400 to my loan yesterday, AND I sold a dining room set last night for a little extra pocket cash. Since tomorrow is Veteran’s day, we got paid today instead, so I paid off the final $397.53 this morning.
The loan is gone, but I’m not debt free as expected and as hoped. There’s no screams of joy, yet. There’s no dancing, yet. There's no celebration, yet.
You see, that, VERY painful, Kidney Stone ended up costing a little bit. After Insurance finally kicked in their share, I was left with about $1700 in medical bills. I’ll continue my budgeted line item of $400 per paycheck to tackle this last debt.
THERE WILL BE SCREAMS OF JOY.
THERE WILL BE DANCING.
I WILL CELEBRATE THIS ACCOMPLISHMENT.
