so we decided when we got jobs we wanted to save for a down payment on a house while we’re living with candace’s parents. it’s been about 3 months and we’ve finally been able to start saving. we had a bunch of bills and some debt from the whole hurricane katrina fiasco that we had to take care of first. not tons of debt, mind you. i don’t easily go into debt. i rarely go into debt, but when i have to i pay it off as soon as possible. i love paying off debt. i love becoming the actual, literal owner of what i buy and not some bank. we just paid off the bill for the furniture we bought after we thought we lost ours from hurricane katrina. i’m glad to say that i now officially own it.
