The Boy and I spent some time looking at an amortization schedule the other day. That’s when we relized that we’re scarily close to paying off our house loan.
Now I’m not saying that we’re going to pay off the house next month or even next year. However, we’ve only been in the Hayley house since May 2009 with a 15-year mortgage that we’ve paid extra on, bringing us very close to pay-off time.
Close enough to get excited and laser focused.
