That Was Some Break

Feels like ages since I last posted anything on this blog.

To all of you who were daily readers, I apologize for leaving so abruptly, but I assure you that everything is OK, at least physically.

Financially, the family has hit some hard times due to an uncontrollable family situation which basically ran my emergency fund and all other savings dry (save for the baby's college money/savings account).

We are back in debt and everything seems to be a mess. I have been down this road before so I know I can get out of it, no matter what, this will be the last time I have to go through this.

At least now I can share a get out of debt journey with my fellow bloggers/readers.

This week, I will be tallying up the final numbers (scary thought, I think it's more than 5K which is a big number to me) and detailing the plan to get out and get the savings train back on the tracks.

If the system wasn't set up this way...... nah, I'm not even going down that road

If someone would just cut me a break..... another stupid excuse

I'll just wait 'til my income tax money comes in.... lame

I got myself and my family into this, it's on me and the wife to work our way out.

Currently the plan is to minimize savings (can't stop completely, I am an addict after all), and focus on paying down the debt. 1 year of dedicated payments should be enough, after that, saving go back into high gear.

You never know what tomorrow might bring, but I can sure control today.

Thanks for reading and hopefully you guys aren't too upset that I left.

I have still been reading other blogs from time to time.

Sistah Ant, hope you still planning on buying that house before the year is up.

Dimples, homegirl you really have made some serious progress, keep it up.

SingleMa, you already know you are the Oprah of female financial blogging so I won;t even say anything.

Jonathan, how you find the time to put up so much useful information on your blog is an amazing gift.

Thanks to everyone I forgot to mention
