Christine, you are my idol! What exceptional news!
My own best financial news is that I owe under $30 and my car will be paid off (miscalculated final pmt.) Bad news is that someone rear-ended me last week. This year is NOT off to the best start. . .mebbe all the bad stuff is loaded into this first month (like the rule of 78's. . .if you pay more than minimum on what you owe, this method maximizes the amount paid by applying funds to interest before applying it the principal. Soooo, I'm hoping all that nasty interest on life is taken care of early in the year!)
Life is just a chance to grow a soul.
