I know it’s not Christmas and no I am not moving it up, because I’m bored. In fact this has nothing to do with Christmas but with my own personal “Christmas.” Yep, you guessed it . . . Credit Card Debt Freedom Day.
With CCDF Day, I and I alone get to celebrate (well, me and the well to do). I most certainly will be celebrating it, as this is a momentous occasion for me. So, to get me ready for it and in the spirit, I have started to count down the days on my small white board.
I will keep my eye out for a chocolate or other “treat” based advent calendar, and start using that (snicker, snicker). The idea is to try to help pick my mood up down this last stretch.
Why have I been a bit down lately? Well, as the weather turns colder and memories of last winter and what I endured comes back to me.
I know what is in store and I am not looking forward to going through it again. I also know that I need to endure what I went through last winter, again this winter in order to get ahead. The reports of a warmer winter this year is encouraging and keeps me going.
Perhaps by this time next year I can actually get a place to park and live in Wanda and be warm. In order to do that, I need to first get through this winter. So, I will count down the days to my CCDF Day!
