Andy has 8 days left; I have 17. And then we can buy things.
Oh. My. Goodness. That is such an exciting thought!
It's not really buying anything in particular, though a new set of Goober Goggles and the yarn to finish this shawlare first on my list. After that I don't care, but I am going to walk through a store just knowing I can buy something if I want to do so.
It's so exciting--I have chills just thinking about it.
Not to lose our heads entirely, I have transfered the extra money we've saved the last 80 days into several savings accounts--one for vacations, one for home projects, one for legal fees (to continue to cope with an ex wife who just can't accept the fact that she doesn't matter to either of us and thinks racking up legal bills might make her important somehow), retirement accounts for both of us, and a medical savings account. The amount we have saved over the last 80 days has really been amazing, proving how much we have been spending that we didn't need to spend. If I were an idiot, I'd suggest that we do a 90-day spending ban each year to save money, but I'm just too excited about new Goober Boggles to consider it just now.
We're almost there!!!!!!
