I drive a lot for my job. Because of that, I get paid quite a bit of mileage when I drive. Soon after I got my job 11 years ago, I decided I wanted another car, so I bought a Civic Hybrid. I had the Civic for 7 years but paid it off in 4 (I think). My budget allowed me to continue to put my mileage checks into savings for my next car. Two and a half years ago, a little earlier than I had hoped, the Hybrid started having some problems. Instead of putting money into the car, I decided to buy a new car. I had been hoping to pay outright with the money I had saved, but didn't have quite enough, so I've had a car payment for a couple of years. But today, I wrote the last check for that car payment! Adios car debt! Hello, saving for the next car!
Let's see. I am in my thirties and single. I love spending time with my family, friends, reading, playing games, and spectating (but not playing) sports. I was born in Illinois, raised in Georgia, and went to graduate school in Texas. I now live back in Illinois. I work at an agency doing in-home therapy with kids and their families. I attend Bethany Baptist Church and work with AWANA, volunteer in the nursery, and am active in the Career class. My favorite drink is Dr. Pepper (I even like Dr. Pepper Jelly Bellies). Winter is my favorite time of year and in the winter I love to curl up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate.
