Christmas is over. We are home from the post-Christmas trip to visit my family in PA. (That trip, by the way, was the longest and most arduous journey we have taken as a family. Considering we have moved cross-country twice, and halfway across the country once, that is saying something.) The children are back in school. Life is back to routine.
One routine we all hate is paying bills. But this month, I am looking forward to paying one that I received in the mail today. After 15 long years, I am making my final student loan payment for college. I feel as if some celebration is in order. But, since that isn’t likely to take place, at least it is worth noting this achievement on my blog.
