OK, so I sort of dropped out and unplugged there for a few days. But I'm back, and with huge news. Big, colossal, super fantastic news. Ready for it?
I HAVE PAID OFF MY STUDENT LOANS!!!
Words can not express how happy this makes me. Honestly, I could have paid off my student loans a few months back, but given the current craptastic economy, My Man felt we needed to "put more money away in savings first." Sigh. Let me tell you how much that almost killed me. Every loan I've ever had, once it gets down to a semi-manageable amount, I just want to pay. the. damn. thing. off. But I knew, he was right. Damn him. I hate it when he's right. Our savings now back up to an acceptable amount in his eyes, when I got my latest loan statement earlier this week I was able to pay it off!
And as if that weren't fantastic enough news.....
I've also paid off my car loan.
Frankly, I'm saying that in a quieter voice since now that I have the Batmobile paid off it would be my luck to be driving down a So. Cal freeway only to have the transmission fall out. Or the engine blow up. Seriously.
So that's my exciting news. Although it's slightly tempered. Because now that we're out from under my student loan and car payment? Yeah, we have to start kicking more cash towards My Man's student loan. :::headdesk:::
Gotta say though, I sort of feel like a "real" librarian now that I'm no longer paying for the Master's degree I earned 10 years ago. Kinda like I graduated all over again.
