Cutting at the debt....

Well, we got the tax refund in and we are cutting into the debt with it.... since Eric is still without work (please pray for our situation) we have had some bills get behind ... so with the refund we designated monies for debt cutting and paid off all the medical bills we had (most were behind) and now we only have 2 bills and the monthly payments are minimal .... I heaved a great sigh of relief after writing all those checks today! Mailing them out in the morning and so glad that we are slowly getting debt free! As it stands now we have less than 15K in debt and we are hopeful to pay this off as soon as possible!!!

Now, we did budget for some of the refund money to go towards a bit of a fun night... we are planning to take the kids out to a dinner and a movie... haven't told them yet... we want it to be a surprise!!! And I'm going to get me a digital camera (so excited!!!) we will take the remaining money and use it for utilities in the upcoming months if Eric does not find a job withing that time.

Well, gotta go!
Update ya'll soon!!!
