Tonight we put up two more pieces to our debt snowball puzzle. That is exciting!! We called the whole family in for a little ceremony. I hummed a processional march and the children cheered as I pasted some climbing roses, Snow White, and one half of Cinderella into place. It has been a LONG, LONG, time since we have been able to add to the Disney Castle collage. Before the move, before Cobra premiums and two house payments, before Cara. Without a second income, our snowball wouldn't budge. No way, no how.
But we finally got the last payments for our vending machine business--in one lump sum. Guess the dead beat didn't want to show up for court. We were scheduled to appear mid May. One of the debts we payed off was Marina's adoption loan. WooHoo! It feels good to pay off any creditor, but even better knowing that money will be turned around to help another child come home. I let her kiss it before sticking it up on our puzzle. Her ransom is paid in full.
