money is hard
I just paid off a credit card. My work finally approved our raises and I got a lump sum of back pay. Some extra. I wanted to buy a new mattress, I wanted to buy a new fridge. As much as I would have enjoyed those things I would still have debt looming over me. And I find the weight of that debt almost unbearable. We are not out of the woods. We still have more dept to pay off. But I think this is one huge step. One big hurdle. As soon as I get my statement in and can confirm we have 0 balance I am calling the company to cancel the card. I WANT IT GONE. I know they will give me a hard time but I just want it GONE! No more temptation. No more easy money. I still want that mattress and that fridge, but I can wait. Just a bit longer. Money is hard, being adult is hard, knowing that those things I want are just things, is hard. But worth it.
