I got that job in DC that I posted about before. So I took this week off of work, packed up my son and drove to Maryland to look for an apartment right outside DC. Found a perfect 2 bedroom/ 2 bath with daycare the next block. I will be taking the bus to work every day so I put my car in storage mode. My monthly expenses will be cut by almost $1000 and my income increased greatly. Now that the lease is signed, I am going to work on snow balling debt I have and getting 70% of it paid off by the end of the year. Now that I don't have that money sucking asshole draining me because he wanted to buy Jay Z tickets when the rent is due , I will be able to get really ahead financially. I am very excited about this!

This is going to be a great year for me.

Yay for moving forward!!!


Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Wonderful. There is nothing like seeing that debt just melt away. Did the same for the last two years, am now debt free and am working on building my savings. Good luck to you!

Brilliant! So happy for your NB, it sounds wonderful .

I too am focusing on paying off debt (will be done in less than 6 months), had no idea how much beer and whores cost until I stopped having to pay for them.

Me: Awesome - 35.... ummm, not anymore

Woo!! This is awesome.

You're going to love DC. I lived there for 3 1/2 years - if you want recommendations ever, let me know. I miss the restaurants...sigh.
