Not yet up to a full post. But that’s ok because:
If I were debt free, not much would change until Mr. Micah got a job. Except that we’d be diverting our debt-repayment money into savings. Which would be quite nice.
Next year, though, once Mr. Micah got a job (as long as it earned $30,000/year, like I am now), I’d take time off to apply for jobs I really wanted. Maybe work part-time at the local library until I found something (their part-time is 10-12 hours/week). Do some writing. Volunteer. Maybe get a job I can do from home.
So being debt free for me would mean finding a job I really liked. It would mean a certain amount of freedom. Mr. Micah loves his work teaching, and I’d like to be working in a job which I felt equally passionate about.
Not tagging anybody this time, but I’m sure the meme will go on. 🙂
