One thing I neglected to mention in my holiday re-cap post was that I received a check from my grandfather for $1000.00. Yes, one THOUSAND dollars. I was in shock and disbelief.
Today I called him to say thanks and then I proceeded to put that $1000 towards my car loan. My loan is now down to $2000!! I am sooo close to being completely debt free. I hope to have it gone within the next few months and then I can start to get serious about moving out.
