Till Debt Do Us Part

This morning started uber-early as we had to drive across the city to get some papers signed. We have been having some pretty serious debt problems that we were getting worked out through an agency which removed all the interest off the credit cards, but we found an even better deal. The new deal got our debts down to like a third of what they were and the payments are insanely easy compared to what we were paying each month. If all goes well we will officially be out of debt in a year and half at the latest. Yahoo! Finally.

I have to say it’s really irritating though when I have to get myself up, dressed, do my hair, get my son up, nurse him, get him dressed, feed him, get the diaper bag ready, get all the papers together that we needed to take and somehow, hubby having a coffee, showering and getting dressed makes us late. They say women take forever to get ready? Not in this household!

On the way back from the financial planners’ we stopped to check out the garden centre at the local grocery store. I’ve been chomping at the bit to get a move on so I convinced hubby that we needed to go somewhere. We wandered around and found some really nice plants, but I wanted to see other places too to see if we were getting a good deal or not. I figured that there was probably markup on these plants (coming from a grocery store) that there might not be at a nursery. So we then went to nursery up the street from our place. They had different plants around the same price as we’d already seen. I still want to check out Wal-Mart and see what kind of prices they have in comparison. I’ll probably end up getting my plants from a couple of different places. My Mum is coming over on Wednesday, so I’ve asked the seasoned gardener to assist me with my plant choices.

  1. Hello, I put the tag list to date and stumbled you. Have fun.

  2. glad to hear you are on your way to being debt free! its tough to be in that difficult situation… and its doubly tough because of how things are going with the economy right now… it takes a lot of time to get out of debt and rebuild ones credit…i do hope they are coping well! and good luck with the plants too!

  3. Congrats with getting some ease of debts, it should be really warming to understand it is only 1,5 years left to be totally free of them… superb…

    In my family hubby is getting ready much faster than me, but he’d never go with me to buy plants or some female/crafting things – so good things and bad things are always balanced in each family:)
