Look how I filled out part of my census form last night:
That’s right, after 16 years making mortgage payments every month, I am now done! I went to the bank yesterday and paid off the last few thousand remaining on the loan. I was so excited that even the bank person noticed I was shaking, and the first time I tried to write out the check I screwed up and wrote out the amount on the “Pay to:” line.
I drove home with an enormous grin on my face, and we celebrated last night with freshly-baked peach pie, and a chocolate donut for M who doesn’t like the pie. A proper mortgage-burning party will follow in about a week, when we also attempt to burn the remainder of the bittersweet.
Woohoo! I did it!
