Months ago I made our mortgage countdown calendar

to put on the fridge with teddy bears for each month. (Photos in the photo section) At first dh was “that’s nice”. After awhile ds started remarking that the numbers were dropping fairly fast. But dh still barely acknowledged it.

With all that has gone on this last three months I haven’t even been able to do a full snowball payment, but I have paid a little extra here and there.

Tonight I changed the bears and did an update, under the very watchful eye of dh. I turned around to see him grinning ear to ear. He then remarked about how much we have dropped that bill tremendously in just a few months. It seems he has been paying attention all along. In fact he was the one that pointed out even with just basic payments we will break the $50,000 mark in just 2 weeks!
