this check right here is the biggest lump sum i have ever paid for anything ever, short of the down payment on my house (and this is close to that)😱😭. i've been waiting/dreading this day for 9 months; ever since we discovered we had a water problem back in february we knew this was going to be expensive.
so why am i smiling?
for the first time in my adult life we had enough money saved to pay for this (very expensive) home repair. i'm not going to lie to yall and say that coaching paid for this repair, because it didn't.
but what it did do is add money to our savings while we waited for repairs to be done and it's going to build our savings back up. its also a really nice supplement to our income, especially going into a holiday season.
so yes, i'm smiling. we were able to pay cash for a large home repair and even though our savings is drained, our credit cards are still in great shape and we aren't having to worry about having an indoor swimming pool in our crawl space anymore. 😁😂 and that my friends, is #winning
