And that, my dears, is how much debt is left to pay off my mortgage. Can't believe I'm under $7K. It feels fantastic.

No one has put an offer on our house yet. People are looking but no one is buying. The holidays are not a good time for it, I know. I just wish it would happen. I know houses can sit for years. I don't want to be one of the people that happens to. And I don't really want to be a landlord either.

I got some nice things from my in-laws for Christmas. I am looking forward to trying the ravioli maker and press. And to using the electric meat grinder. We're going to make rabbit burger this week after the rabbits are finished aging. I'd like to be able to replace our ground beef consumption with it if possible, or at least do a half and half ratio.

What's with the ugly obtrusive ads all over SA? I go offline for a few days and come back to that? Yeesh. It looks awful. One of the things I always liked about this place was how unobtrusive the ads were. Now they are totally in my face. *sighs*

    I noticed the ads as well! Thought I was imagining them to be bigger and brighter than usual.

    Holy cow! Under $7K is great!
    How is it that no one is buying? We were one of three couples who bought in February when the rates fell. Rates are going up. Is your house in the fringes of Bellingham, or is it close (within four blocks) to transit lines?

  3. LuckyRobin Says:

    Thanks, Paulette. The house is 22 miles from Bellingham, but it is a very short walk to the Whatcom Transit stop. They don't really have blocks as the roads are all weirdly curved, but I'd guess it is within 3 to 4 blocks. It took us about 7 minutes to walk there or 3 minutes to ride our bikes there. People can also take their bikes on the bus (it has bike racks on the outside of it) so they can get around in town.

    Congrats on getting the mortgage debt within sight of payoff, and good luck with the house sale. Happy New year!

    Congrats. Its been cold & with the holidays, its just not buying season. I'm guessing after the first of February you'll get more interest.

    SO Jealous! I can't wait for my mortgage balance to get there. But I can't be too sad. We knocked $16k off the balance last year and are under $60,000. We're on our way.
