Once we resolved to be, and live, debt-free, our lives changed. I can't look at life the same way anymore, whether it's a big something like buying a house or a car or a little something, like buying clothes before the bills are paid. Something else has changed, too, and I just realized this tonight...here's the back story: I have a contract with a district that I HAVE to fulfill by 6/30. No ifs, ands or buts about it. As I've worked today I just keep thinking, one more hour, X dollars down...and I realized that it's like the time that I owe them is a debt. So yeah I want to go to read a book or go to bed...but I want to be debt-free more.
