Sigh

Sweet Hubby and I are getting ready to pay off our last credit card with our tax refund. That's exciting. We've been looking forward to doing that for a year.

But.

Then I go and have to have a root canal and two crowns. Grrr. So now we're about $1600 in debt again (not counting the cars and house). Thankfully, we were able to get a line of credit through the dentist's office with a low interest rate AND low monthly payment and we're thinking we can get it paid off with NEXT year's tax refund or Sweet Hubby's yearly bonus (that he's not getting this year).

*sigh*

One step forward, one step back.

I feel you. I truly do.

No, don't look at it like that! It's such progress. There's a big difference between a dentist bill and a credit card. You certainly won't be tempted to go back to the dentist and charge up more bills. :) YAY for no more revolving credit debt! I think that's a major victory. :)

I agree with K, it's awesome that you're paying off that credit card. And I find it ironic that we plan to pay off the last remaining balance on our credit card (thanks to Dave Ramsey) with part of our tax return too. It's very liberating.

That is awesome on the credit card situation! We are far from that point, but we are working toward it. Bummer about the dentist, but at least you know you won't have other debts hanging over your head along with this one. Keep up the good work!
