Yesterday I wrote out a check in the amount of $18,468.57 to pay off our mortgage. It felt unreal. I was super excited but also nervous about taking such a big chunk of our savings. It leaves our regular savings at about $4600 and about $8300 in stocks that I plan to liquidate. We paid off $87,200 in 16 months. Whew!
It does feel pretty cool to actually own our property now. To know that the only thing we need to pay to keep it is our taxes is an exuberating feeling.
Of course this is just a temporary time without a mortgage but I'm still going to relish it.
By the way, Y and I are doing better. We never fight in front of Lil Punk because she won't tolerate any loud voices. Even if we're just joking around, she gets very upset. Raised voices are not allowed in our house. We just argue in a conversational tone if we're fighting.
