Backwards is apparently how Scott and I handled our finances.
What we wouldn't give to go back to that one person apartment in midtown, stuffed to the brim with two people and two incomes and hit the restart button on our finances. It's a scary thing to figure out the answer to your financial problem when you're a mortgage, two kids, and one income in over your head.
But, I suppose backwards is better than not at all. Right?
So, we continue on our s-l-o-w journey to financial freedom, backwards as it may be. It's a stop. start. stop. start process, but we are plugging along.
What we wish for is a really easy, painless, God-to-the rescue, and we are out of debt process. But it is definitely not looking like that's the way it's going to be.
But, I am currently working my way through Proverbs, and Solomon doesn't beat around the bush--wisdom, he says, is better than jewels. It's better. And I really think that we are gaining wisdom in the process. I really believe we are. So, we lift our hands up in Thanksgiving, and we crunch the numbers, and we cut the coupons, and we work our way backwards to a place where we will feel so free.
