Also, we embarrassingly have a television that we have to warm-up to use; I wish I was joking. I believe it’s about a 52 inch LG television and in the process of moving multiple times, having children that love to throw, natural aging, etc. it takes about 10 to 15 minutes to turn on. Our almost four-year-old will ask if we can warm the TV up so he can watch cartoons. It’s as sad as it sounds; slightly funny but still very sad and so annoying.

There are so many material things that we wish we owned but we’re determined to get out of debt so Jarod and I sat down and decided exactly where every dollar of that bonus would go. We paid-off a school loan (we’ve paid off three so far, YAY!!), took our family vehicle to get it’s brakes done and a few other services that were needed and we replenished our emergency fund, which recently was depleted to fix our other vehicle.
It will takes us awhile to get out of the mess we created for ourselves but I’m so proud of us for not succumbing to the brilliance of marketing and forging ahead to a better life, one in which we will be debt-free, have a house completely paid-off in our 30‘s, a lucrative retirement plan and very cushioned college funds for our babies. We’re making baby steps but we're going to make it.
