October Update

A few weeks ago, we got back from another 2 1/2 week, cross-country road trip.  We drove some 6700 miles, through 31 states, and we saw a lot of people.    And just as I did two years ago when we took a similar trip, I'm asking myself the questions:  

Was it irresponsible for us to take such a trip?

Should we be taking ANY trips?

What kind of business do we have spending $4K + on travel to anywhere when we're still trying to pay off our debt?

Was it worth it?

And with the exception of that last question (Yes.  Yes, it was worth it), I don't know the answers.  I do know that I don't regret the trip.  At all.  Experiences like that are too important to regret.  

But the fact remains that once again, we made a choice that put our debt repayment on a temporary back burner.  So maybe next year we don't take a vacation.  Maybe we take a smaller one.  Maybe we find a way to bring in even more money to get the debt paid off that much quicker.  I don't know.  I just know that it's making me tired, this big black cloud that too often feels like it's Never.  Going.  Away.  

November is another month.

Total Debt For October:
Up By $288.93
