Nice to note as well as we left the house w/$750 in vacation cash and came home after 10 fun days away w/a bit over $300. YEAH!!! We ate out 3 times at 'eat-in' restaraunts and many times going & coming in the fast food joints and went to many free events while we were away. We took one copy box full of groceries & spent $80 at the grocery store upon our arrival. Our best vacation expense? We spent $1.22 + tax for birdseed to feed the birds outside our resort condo.

Mortgage Update

July 3rd, 2007 at 03:44 pm



Updating the mortgage balance.

Staying afloat - the new updated mortgage balance is $21,554.02! Time to actual payoff is 6 years 3 months. We are paying some little extra to this each month, by adding another $6.00 monthly I can shave off another month at the end. Will be trying to do that, making projected payoff in July 2012.
