September by the Numbers

Again – nothing to exciting to report (other than the fact that, yes, we did feel the DFW earthquake yesterday).  As I stated last month, fall work is starting to pick up again.  With work coming in, we were able to apply a little extra to the debt.

I’m still not sure if we will make our goal of paying off all the debt before the end of the year, but we are certainly getting close.

Here are the somewhat, non-exciting, numbers:

Extra income: none

Extra Debt paid: $905

Total Debt paid in September: $1,151*

Since 1/1/2012 – Total Debt Paid off: $30,119*

*For the purpose of Baby step 2 we are not factoring in our home mortgage

I’m trying to finish polishing up my resume, but am very distracted by the news out of Japan.

wow – the devastation is – well, beyond words.

I have a few friends in Japan, but heard via Facebook they are safe. Now we wait and watch with the rest of the country to see what happens on the US west coast.

I grew up in Washington State, so that is where my interest  lies. I’m not overly concerned, as the waves probably won’t be that large.
